Spring season is the best time of the year to maintain your heating and cooling system and make sure it is running properly until the next seasons. As you inch closer to spring, be sure to include these maintenance tips on your to-do list to get your system ready for warmer weather. Here’s how you can prepare your HVAC for the spring season: Upgrade Your Thermostat Use the beginning of a new season as an excuse to replace your old thermostat. Installing a new thermostat will help you regulate your indoor temperature better. Also, it helps lower your utility bill by ensuring that your HVAC system is running at its most efficient condition whether you are at home or away. Change Your Air Filter You may have heard this tip a lot of times, but you should know that changing your air filter is essential when it comes to indoor air quality matters. Replacing your filters can also boost your HVAC system’s efficiency and make it easier for the unit to perform its job. We suggest changing your air filter at least once a month. Check Your Ductwork The beginning of spring is the perfect time to call your local HVAC contractor to inspect your ductwork. This critical part of your heating and cooling system may occasionally cause air leaks, but repairing it could actually make a huge difference in your comfort and savings. With professional inspection and repair, you can have a more efficient system that cools and heat your home better. Clean Your Outdoor Unit A heavy winter may leave unwanted debris near your outdoor unit. This makes it essential for you to check and clear out the debris that sits around the system. An overgrown garden could be getting in the way as well. When planning to remove this debris and other blockages all by yourself, be sure to do it properly without damaging your unit. To ensure proper cleaning and complete inspection, do not hesitate to call the experts.
