Clean More Than Just Your Closet This Spring!

While it’s a great idea to use spring cleaning to remove dirt and dust collected inside your home over the winter, it is also the ideal time to schedule some spring maintenance for your HVAC system.

Your HVAC system runs more efficiently in the spring when you perform some routine maintenance. In addition to saving money on your energy bills, an efficient system can also prevent the need for costly repairs.  An efficient system can also extend the life of your equipment.

Replace Your Air Filter

There are two major reasons every homeowner should follow this tip. Performing these checks on your HVAC system can make a big difference in its health. A clean air filter can reduce your home’s energy consumption. Additionally, your home’s air quality will be improved by trapping allergens and dust. When you live in a pollen-rich area, this is of particular importance.

Your disposable filter should be replaced monthly if it is in your unit, and your washable filter should be cleaned and washed on a regular basis if it is in your unit.

Ductwork Check

Ductwork is also an integral part of your HVAC system. If there are any holes or leaks, ensure that they are sealed. If there are cracks in the duct system, they should also be addressed.

Make sure the drainage hole is clear

Drainage holes are usually located at the base of air conditioner cabinets. It is necessary to keep this hole clear in order for your HVAC system to work properly. A clogged drainage hole could prevent your unit from draining if you do not clean it. This will increase the strain on the machine and reduce its efficiency. There is also the possibility of a clog in the P-trap, which is adjacent to the drainage hole. Be sure to clear that as well.

Close all the windows and doors

Keeping windows and doors closed helps prevent the entry of allergens if you or members of your household suffer from asthma or allergies. To keep out allergens in the summer, it’s a good idea to keep windows and doors closed in order to keep out hot and humid air. You will reduce efficiency and increase costs if you let in too much warm air.

We hope these tips will help you in maintaining your HVAC unit throughout the year. As always, if you need anything give us a call!
