Spring Checklist for your HVAC System
Now is the perfect time to get your HVAC system ready for spring and warmer weather. Especially when you hale from a part of the country where warm weather turns blazing hot when summer hits. You could say it’s even more important now with the current situation keeping so many people indoors. The last thing you need is for your AC to fail, making indoors an uncomfortable place to be. Well, check one thing off your to-do list by using our spring checklist for getting your HVAC system ready for whatever comes next.
Replace Your Air Filter
If you’re not changing your air filter regularly, you may already have a system that is working too hard to heat or cool your home. A dirty air filter obstructs the air flow and not only works your system too hard; it can wreak havoc on your wallet with higher energy costs. It is recommended that you change your filter every 30 days for optimal performance. But definitely make it part of your spring checklist as well.
Test Your System
Monitor whether your system is cooling your home to the temperature on your thermostat. Make note of any strange noises or odors as they can be signs of a problem. And consider whether your thermostat needs to be upgraded.
Prepare Outside Units
Be sure to clean out any leaves or other debris from the area surrounding the vents.
Schedule a Maintenance Appointment
You can do some things on your own, but you should definitely have your HVAC system regularly inspected and spring is the perfect time to do it. Your professional HVAC technician will check your refrigerant levels, clean and lubricate the components, check the systems operating efficiency and check your system for any components for weakness and potential failures that could cause your AC to malfunction when you need it the most.
