It’s always good to regularly check your HVAC system between seasons, especially when transitioning from the cooling season to the warming season. As temperatures begin to rise and we enter the spring season soon, you’ll be switching your thermostat from heating to cooling if you haven’t already. The last thing you want is for your HVAC system to fail while experiencing the warmer temperatures of the upcoming season, so here are three helpful tips for preparing your HVAC system for spring.
Changing Your Air Filters
An important aspect of HVAC maintenance is regularly checking and changing your air filter. It helps improve the flow and quality of air circulating throughout your home or building while also helping preserve the life of your HVAC system, ensuring that it continues to run efficiently. As a part of routine HVAC maintenance, your air filter should be checked once a month and changed every two to three months. Changing your air filter is especially important during spring when allergy season is at its peak. Replacing a dirty air filter help reduce the amount of pollen, dirt dust, debris, particles, and other allergens from flowing through an area, creating a clean and healthy environment for individuals with allergies and other health conditions.
Cleaning Your Air Duct
Cleaning your air ducts helps ensure great indoor quality in your home or facility. Cleaning your ducts helps your HVAC system run more efficiently, increases the airflow in your home, and frees your ducts of dust, dirt, debris, and other allergens that can accumulate over time. It’s recommended that you schedule a duct cleaning every 5 to seven years, especially around spring when you’re beginning to use your air-conditioning (AC) more frequently as outdoor temperatures.
Schedule Routine HVAC Inspections and Maintenance
When it comes to your HVAC, maintenance is not optional. Scheduling routine inspections and maintenance for your HVAC contractor helps prolong the life of your HVAC, keep it updated and running efficiently, and allows you to catch minor issues before they become major, resulting in costly repairs or replacement. Scheduling routine HVAC maintenance session with a professional is one of the best ways to prepare your HVAC for spring.
