HVAC maintenance is an important issue year-round. Despite the pleasant feel of spring, skipping over the season would be a mistake. That’s why we’ve compiled this quick checklist of spring HVAC maintenance tips to help you prepare for the season.
Schedule an AC Tuneup
It’s a good idea to make sure that your air-conditioning unit is working at peak performance before the spring season begins. A professional HVAC technician will check to make sure that everything is in working order, which will help ensure it’s efficiency and even prolong its operational life span.
Switch Out the Air Filter
Once your system’s air filter gets clogged up by dirt and debris, it will impede your equipment’s ability to keep your air cool. Check the filter to see if it needs replacement or cleaning (depending on the type that your system uses) before spring begins and then every month after that.
Upgrade Your Thermostat
Manual thermostats are a thing of the past, so if your home still has one, it’s time to upgrade to a programmable model, which will give you greater control over your cooling needs. And if you’ve been using a programmable thermostat for the past few years, you may want to upgrade to one that has remote capability, weather reports, etc.
Hire a Technician for an AC Tuneup
Keeping your air-conditioning system operating properly for the spring season begins with a tuneup of the equipment. A qualified HVAC technician will check to make sure that everything is in good working order, make any necessary tweaks, and recommend any further services that may be needed to improve its efficiency or prolong its life span.
Clean Up the Outdoor Unit
With the weather that takes place during the winter season blowing debris around, your outdoor unit might be covered with various bits of debris. Remove any large pieces of debris, such as tree branches, by hand. Then, use a hose to wash everything else off.
