Spring Care for your HVAC System

Spring Care for your HVAC System

After a long winter, you will want to make sure you HVAC system is still operating efficiency. As the seasons change, you will want to make sure that your system is operating as efficiently as possible. There are several parts and components that you should inspect regularly. The best thing to do is contact us so we can inspect the system for you. Doing so will help to ensure that everything is working efficiently. We can also recommend when various maintenance inspections should be done for the system.

Check the Air Conditioner

In the spring is a great time to have to have the air conditioner inspected for preventative maintenance. Before turning the air conditioner on, you will want to make sure it will be ready to operate and produce cool air. You will want to ensure that when you flip on the air conditioner, it will cool your home as you want. We can inspect the ductwork, thermostat, and filter of the system. Always remember to change the filter on a regular basis. Running the HVAC system without a filter can cause damage to the gears and parts of the system.

Keeping the ductwork clean is important for the efficiency of the system, as well as air quality. If the ductwork is full of dirt and dust, then it will be distributed back into the air of your home. This can be difficult breathing if you or anyone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma. Also inspect the ductwork for any cracks or damage that it might have. Damage to the ductwork allows the air to escape from them. You may also notice an increase in your monthly energy bill as well. That is because the HVAC system will have to work harder to produce the air that it is set at.

Knowing what Needs Inspecting for your HVAC System

In the spring, make sure that you have the HVAC system properly inspected and maintained. Doing so will help to make sure that everything is working efficiently when you go make the switch from heat to cool. There are several parts that you will want to make sure are always in the best working condition. You can contact us so we can inspect them. Between visits you can also take a look at them incase there is a large issue. Never ignore an issue, because it can lead to further time, money, and stress in the long run.

The filter will have to be changed regularly. If you have pets or people in your home use tobacco products, you will want to change the filter every month. You can change the filter every three months if you do not have pets or use tobacco. Changing the filter will help to keep the air as clean as possible when you are in the home. Always make sure that you get a filter that is the correct size for your HVAC system. Doing so will help it to work effectively as possible. A filter that is too small or too large can cause issues in the long run.

Another important thing to check this spring is the thermostat. If you are looking to buy a new one, a programmable thermostat offers several benefits. You can set the temperature in your home to decrease and increase, based on your schedule. If you have the same hours at work, you can set the temperature so it is at the ideal degree when you arrive home from work. When you have a programmable thermostat, you can also help to reduce overall monthly energy costs for your system.

Spring HVAC preventative maintenance is the best thing you can do for your HVAC system. During the summer months, you will want your home to be cool. The air conditioner works hard to make sure your home is at just the right temperature. On hotter days, this can make the air conditioner work harder, which translates to a higher electricity bill. In fact, heating and air conditioning equipment makes up more than half of your monthly utility bill spending.

Keep the system Efficient

Spring preventative maintenance does a couple of things for your cooling equipment. It helps you avoid emergency no cool calls during the peak cooling season. It also helps your unit run as efficiently as possible. This means saving you money during the peak cooling season.
