Keep your HVAC happy and check these items off your spring cleaning list
Warmer weather is right around the corner! Is your home heating and cooling system ready to tackle the change of season?
Your HVAC system has been working hard to keep you warm, so it’s a good idea to prepare it for the upcoming changes in temperature. Ticking these items off your spring cleaning checklist will help your unit operate safely and efficiently.
Tick these tasks off your HVAC spring cleaning checklist
Clean your ducts
Your ducts have an important job to do. They circulate warm and cool air (depending on the season) throughout your home to keep your family comfortable all year long. Contaminants like dust, dirt, and mold and mildew spores can accumulate in your ducts and blow around your home.
While you can’t easily inspect the state of your ducts yourself, you can get a professional to inspect them and suck out all those harmful impurities.
Change your furnace filter
Your furnace has been running all winter long trapping pollutants like dust, pet hair, and dirt in the filter. If you’re not doing it monthly, it’s a good idea to change your air filter at the start of each season. Not only do you help the quality of air in your home, but you also help prevent damage to your HVAC system and lower your energy costs.
Schedule a tune-up
You likely haven’t had to cool your home for months. Given the break, testing your AC is a smart way to make sure it’s running and ready to beat the summer heat.
Spring air conditioning maintenance will help prevent costly repairs, detect refrigerant leaks, and address any issues.
Clean your outdoor unit
Grass and weeds continue to grow over the winter. Any organic growth can block the air flow efficiency of your HVAC system, minimize its effectiveness, and cause damage if left out of control.
Keep your outdoor unit clear of grass, weeds, and any other organic debris. It’s also a good idea to inspect the condenser for dirt, twigs, leaves, seeds, and stones. Be sure to turn off your unit before peeking inside.
