Spring has officially arrived, and the sun is starting to shine! This is the perfect time to start on your spring cleaning projects that you’ve put off. Don’t forget about your heating and cooling system! Here are some things to keep in mind when you’re making your spring cleaning checklist for your HVAC system.
1. Pay attention to your air filters
You might not see your air filters every day, but they play a big role in your heating and cooling system’s functioning. Dirty air filters contribute to dusty, dirty air. Make sure you clean or replace the filters regularly to keep the air you breathe as clean as possible. If the filters are one inch, change them more often than those that are up to four inches. The thicker the filter is, the more layers there are that collect dust, debris, and dirt. We recommend checking your filters every other month.
2. Get your spring maintenance appointment scheduled
Just like your car needs regular oil changes, so does your heating and cooling system. Tune-ups are critical to prolonging the life of your system and ensuring that nothing breaks down prematurely. During your maintenance appointment, our experienced HVAC technicians will clean and/or replace air filters, clean the blower motor, run an energy efficiency check, and talk to you about any repairs or replacements that need to be made. When we leave, you can rest knowing that the system is functioning at peak efficiency.
3. Think about your indoor air quality
Springtime allergies? Annoying. Springtime cold virus? Who has time for that! Mold spores, seasonal allergens, viruses, and other bacteria can infiltrate their way into the air you breathe. Consider installing a reliable air purification system that will help minimize your exposure to harmful pathogens that can wreak havoc on your health and your airway.
