Spring maintenance on your HVAC system can lead to the components running more efficiently and to cleaner air for your home. An efficient system means lower energy costs, reduced chances of expensive repairs, and extended life for your system. As you begin to prep for spring, our team at Allied Services, Inc. is here with some tips to get you started.
Check Your Air Filter
The easiest and most necessary step in maintaining your HVAC system is keeping your filter clean. A clean filter will help your system run efficiently and improve the air quality of your home by keeping out allergens and dust. Most units have a disposable filter. If that is the case for you, make sure you get the correct size and replace your filter every one to three months. Similarly, if you happen to have a washable filter, be sure to take it out and clean on the same one to three-month schedule.
Clean the Outdoor Unit
Your outdoor unit needs to be able to pull air into the system to efficiently control the temperature of your home. You’ll want to be sure that all vents are clear and allow for proper airflow. Now that the weather is turning warmer and vegetation will be blooming, be sure to make this a regular check throughout the spring, summer, and fall months.
Schedule Professional Maintenance
While keeping up with simple HVAC maintenance can help keep your system running great, it is still a good idea to have a professional take a look. One of our qualified technicians can take a closer look at your system to ensure proper pressure, amp usage, and more. These check-ups can help you see what repairs might be coming in the future so that you may plan accordingly.
