Spring HVAC Maintenance Tips

Spring is right around the corner. Typically during spring, you don’t usually have to rely on your HVAC system since you can open the windows and enjoy the cool breeze. However this means it’s an excellent time to cool off your system, inspect it, and carry out a few maintenance tasks. This will ensure that your HVAC system is running smoothly and you can dive headfirst into the summer season with no worries.

Check the Cooling System’s Refrigerant Levels

The temperatures will spike up, as the summer gets closer. Thus, it’s crucial to ensure that your HVAC has the correct levels of refrigerant to cool your home efficiently.

Change Your Air Filters

Over time, dust and dirt build up on the filters and result in insufficient air circulation. For ultimate effectiveness, replace the filters every month. Changing your filter is an important part of the quality of your home’s air. Not only can it make you and your family breathe better, but it can also help save you some money. Dirty filters restrict the airflow causing the HVAC system to work harder, which may lower the lifespan of your system.

Clean the Outdoor Unit

Usually, winter storms leave debris around your outdoor unit that you should use a garden hose to wash gently, the outdoor components. Clean your air conditioner when it’s at least 60 degrees outside so you can test it afterward ensuring that everything is working properly.

Upgrade the Thermostat

You can install a programmable thermostat to increase comfort and save energy. You simply need to program it to return your desired temperatures right, before you get back home.

Schedule a Tune-Up

Ensure that you have a preventive maintenance carried out by a qualified HVAC technician every spring. The technician has the knowledge and experience to detect HVAC issues early and offer the necessary solutions. A qualified HVAC technician can also point out problems or issues before they get too bad­–which could cause costly damage down the road. With preventative maintenance, homeowners can avoid unexpected breakdowns during the hottest days of the year.

A spring HVAC inspection can help keep your system running efficiently through the hot season ahead. Proper maintenance will boost your comfort, keep utility bills down, and prolong the lifespan of your unit.

  • Congressional, HVAC in Gaithersburg This tip is common but not all people are doing it. Use window treatments to help control temperature. Window coverings can have a big effect on your home’s heating or cooling load. Reply
  • Skylar Williams I had no idea that I could upgrade my thermostat to be programmable. That sounds like it would be so nice to be able to control the temperature even when I'm not home.
