Tips to Spring into your HVAC Maintenance
It's that time of the year again - as winter is coming to a close and spring is around the corner, you'll want to ensure that your heating, plumbing, and air conditioning are all working properly before the humidity of summer fully sets in.
Spring is the PERFECT time to check up on your HVAC system, since you don’t want to find out you need maintenance during the hot summertime. Plus, if you plan on social distancing and staying home this summer, then you’ll want your HVAC system to be running at its best to keep you and your family comfortable.
The First Step? Preventative Maintenance!
Here are a few tips to help you spring ahead with your HVAC maintenance:
- Clear any dirt or debris from your outdoor unit, as a cluttered unit will have to work harder to keep you cool.
- Check & replace the air filters every season or as needed. Dirty filters can cause your system to work harder than it needs to, causing your energy bills to increase. Additionally, dirty filters can damage equipment and produce poor air quality.
- Inspect and clean your ducts to get rid of any dust, mold, or other contaminants that may have accumulated over the colder months. This will help keep yourself and your family healthy as well as clear pollen out of your air system.
- Modern technology can help keep your HVAC system running smoothly. A programmable thermostat can reduce energy consumption and extend the life of your system.
- It's a good idea to give your HVAC system a break every so often. So, when the weather is finally perfect - not too hot, not too cold - turn off your thermostat for a few weeks and open up the windows instead.
