Spring maintenance is beneficial for your HVAC system. Spring is the perfect time to conduct preventive maintenance on your HVAC system. Proper maintenance ensures that your HVAC system runs efficiently and effectively during the warm season, and minimizes the chances of breakdowns and repairs. Here are some tips to help you with your spring HVAC maintenance.
Spring Maintenance Inspections
Change your air filters: Dirty air filters reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system and can lead to poor indoor air quality. Make sure you change your air filters at least once every three months or as recommended by the manufacturer.
Check the thermostat: Test your thermostat to ensure it’s functioning properly. Check the temperature reading and make sure it’s accurate. Replace the batteries if necessary.
Clean the outdoor unit: The outdoor unit can collect dirt, leaves, and other debris during the winter. Clear the area around the unit and gently clean the coils with a soft brush or vacuum.
Check the refrigerant levels: Low refrigerant levels can cause your system to work harder, leading to higher energy bills and potential damage. Check the refrigerant levels and add more if necessary.
