Is Your HVAC System Ready for the Summer Season?

Published On: February 23, 2024Categories: Uncategorized

As the winter chill gives way to the warmth of spring, it’s time to prepare your HVAC system for the upcoming season. This ensures that when the heat of summer arrives, your home remains a haven of comfort. Let’s dive into the essential steps. 

Why should you change the Air Filters to ensure your HVAC system performs optimally?  

Over time, dust and debris can clog your HVAC system’s filters, leading to reduced air circulation and compromised indoor air quality. Regular inspection and replacement (every 30-90 days) will maintain peak performance. 

Clean Your Outdoor Unit to prepare your outdoor HVAC unit for spring 

Transitioning from winter to spring can leave debris around your outdoor unit. After turning off the power, clear the area to ensure a 24-inch clearance, promoting proper airflow. Gently rinse the unit with a hose and inspect for any damage. 

Duct cleaning is important for your HVAC system  

Ducts accumulate dirt and contaminants over time, affecting air quality. Professionals can clean your ductwork, preventing you from breathing in harmful particles. They can also identify any underlying issues. 

Update Your Thermostat 

Invest in a programmable thermostat if you haven’t already. Programming allows for consistent, comfortable temperatures throughout the day, optimizing energy usage. 

Scheduling a professional tune-up crucial for your HVAC system 

Avoid the unpleasant surprise of a malfunctioning AC unit during a heatwave. Professional inspections in spring and fall reduce unexpected breakdowns, lower energy costs, and maximize overall performance.
