Spring HVAC Tips for Efficient Heating and Air

Date: 2024-02-01

Winter is almost over! That means you need to shift gears and prepare your HVAC system for Spring. This keeps everything running smoothly and saves you from unexpected breakdowns! Oh, and it’ll also keep it running at top speed so you don’t have to worry about anything breaking down. Here’s how to prepare your HVAC system for Spring.

1. Check and Replace Air Filters:
Filters are important. They help with air quality and system efficiency. In other words, they clean the air we breathe and make sure things work properly.

2. Inspect Thermostat:
Make sure your thermostat is working properly… if you don’t have one, get one! This helps save energy while keeping everyone comfortable!

3. Clean Vents and Ducts:
Dust builds up over time in vents and ducts. Forcing systems to work harder than they should be. Go ahead and clear them out to make everything run a lot smoother!

4. Schedule Professional HVAC Maintenance:
Get someone out there who knows what they’re doing! If you do this they can find any potential problems before they become real issues.

5. Check for Leaks:
While the professional is looking over your HVAC unit, ask them to look for leaks too! Things like this make things work less efficiently… meaning more money out of YOUR pocket!

6. Examine the Outdoor Unit:
Your outdoor unit needs some love too! Leaves, twigs, dirt… all of it can stop the unit from working properly. Give it a nice cleaning so it can run better!

7. Test the System:
Just check now if both heating and cooling are working before you need them… It’d suck if something broke on an off day.

8. Consider Professional Duct Cleaning
Sigh… I guess if you haven’t cleaned it in a while go ahead…
