Spring is here! To keep your comfort system running smoothly this season, here is our Spring HVAC maintenance checklist!
As the weather begins to warm up, many of us feel the need to do some spring cleaning, and the inside of your home isn’t the only thing that needs it!
Here are 3 ways to ensure your HVAC system stays in tip-top shape this Spring:
1. Change Your Air Filter
Your air filter has the important job of acting as a barrier between you and exposure to harmful indoor air contaminants. It's essential to replace your air filter at least once every three months, as you would be surprised how quickly it can become clogged when exposed to allergens, such as pollen, and bacteria, especially during the spring months.
2. Install A Programmable Thermostat
Consider installing a smart thermostat. It's one way to keep your HVAC system running efficiently and reduce your energy costs as we get into the spring and summer months. Programmable thermostats help maximize your HVAC unit's energy usage, and they can help extend your comfort system's lifespan by optimizing temperatures and reducing the stress on your system.
3. Schedule HVAC Maintenance
Your air conditioning system accumulates dust and dirt during the year, making it less efficient and costing you more on your utility bills. Add on lack of regular A/C tune-up and maintenance, and you can count on your heat pump or air handler breaking down during the hottest time of the year!
