Getting Your Heating and Cooling System Ready for Spring
Spring is a great time of year, but it’s a transitional time for your home’s heating and cooling system. During spring you might use both your heat and air conditioning, depending on the weather. As spring draws to summer temperatures will start to rise which means you’ll be wanting to have your A/C system fully prepared to handle the summer heat.
Some simple maintenance tasks can help ensure your home’s HVAC system is ready for spring. Spring is a great time to do some preventative maintenance because you don’t want your home’s air conditioning to stop working or have issues during the summertime. One of the easiest and most important things you can do is to change your filters. Not only will this improve the indoor air quality but it’ll make your HVAC unit more effective and save you money.
Cleaning the outside coils which can be cluttered with debris is also important so your A/C can function optimally. The coils are found in the unit that is located outside your home. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, you can leave this job to the professionals. Even though it might not be time to run the air quite yet, you should test your system to make sure it still blows cold.
As the temperatures start to warm up you’ll likely be spending more time outdoors or you may be getting ready to go on vacation. Installing a programmable thermostat is one way to reduce cooling costs. You can set the thermostat for different temperatures at different times so you aren’t wasting money when nobody is home.
While there are some things you can do, one of the best ideas is to hire a professional like Allen Service for an A/C system check-up. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
