It might still feel like winter, but before you know it spring will give way to summer, and it will get hot. When that summer heat kicks in, it’s crucial that your HVAC system is operating properly.
Spring is an ideal time to make sure your HVAC system is working as it should. Here are some tips to get started.
Change the Air Filter
You might not think that this is important, but having a fresh air filter going into the new seasons helps keep your HVAC system running smoothly. Not only will this minimize unnecessary energy usage, but it will also extend the life of your HVAC system. Additionally, it can also help improve your air quality.
Clean up Outside
Make sure your unit is clean on the outside. All the outside components easily gather dirt and grime throughout the winter months. To keep your system running efficiently, it’s important that these components are clean.
Check for Leaks
Damage can happen throughout the winter months, so it’s essential to check for any cracks or leaks in your HVAC system before the hotter months arrive. Before you ever turn on your system in the spring, any leaks or cracks should be repaired.
Think About Upgrading
Maybe your system has been a little on the fritz for years, or it’s just not doing the trick when you need it most. Either way, it could be time for an upgrade. Now is the best time to take care of this before you need it working for the summer heat.
