Is your refrigerator running? Well, it might not if you don’t clean its coils at least once a year. Dust buildup is the enemy of household appliances, whereas airflow and cleanliness are the keys to appliance longevity and efficiency. Major appliances such as refrigerators, as well as baseboard heating units, will function optimally if you take the time to clean them once a year.
HVACs require regular maintenance to function effectively and efficiently. You can’t do everything, but you can easily handle most of the routine cleaning and save the extra cash that it would cost to have a pro do it. Below are some helpful maintenance tips that will not only help you stay cool all summer and avoid breakdowns, but save you money on your energy bills as well.

An appliance we can’t live without is — first and foremost — our refrigerator! We use our refrigerator multiple times on a daily basis, so we need it to run smoothly and efficiently. Here are a few easy tasks you can do to ensure the effectiveness and long life of your most used appliance.
What is one of the easiest things you can do to prolong the life of your A/C unit? Change the air filters frequently!
Dirty filters compromise the efficiency of your A/C unit and increase the costs to operate it. When dirt collects on the cooling coils, it allows frost buildup on the coils and the fans, making it more difficult for the unit to cool your house. Cooling coils that are dirty will also cause reduced internal air flow into the unit.
Washers and dryers are among the more expensive appliances in our homes, so we want them to last as long as possible. Proper care of your washer and dryer will extend the life of these appliances and cut down on calls to the service repair people.
Many of us don’t understand what a refrigerant does. So we think of it as a coolant, judging by its name. But a refrigerant is a substance that transitions easily from a gas to a liquid in order to remove heat and then provide cool or cold air. Without refrigerants, air conditioners, refrigerators and freezers would not work.
