How to Prepare Your HVAC System for Spring


We are officially in the season of spring! Spring is a beautiful time of year when the flowers begin to bloom again, and warm weather becomes more frequent. A change in the season can mean a multitude of things to many people. For any homeowner, spring is the perfect time to make sure that the HVAC system installed in the home is up to date and still working. The last thing you need a broken cold air system when it is sweltering outside. The following are the best ways to prepare your HVAC system for the Spring season:

One: Run an Overall System Check

In order to prepare your HVAC system for a change in weather, running an overall system check in critical when Spring begins. There are actually specific things that homeowners are able to check and even repair. This includes air filters, air vents, and floor registers, which can be clogged with dust or debris. If you leave these parts of your HVAC system unchecked and dirty, your HVAC can release dirty air and cause health complications. It can even increase your energy bill significantly due to efficiency problems. Other things to search for are broken parts on the outside or inside of the system body. Running an overall system check at the start of each season can prevent huge costs or necessary replacements.

Two: Call in a Professional for an HVAC Checkup

Every time a new season begins, it is a good idea to have a professional come to your home and give your system a full checkup. Professionals can quickly and easily make sure that your system is in the best and most efficient operating condition. These checkups will include an in-depth investigation that is necessary to point out and fix any minor and or major issues with your system. Some possible issues include refrigerant levels being too high or low as well as damaged air coils and filters. Professionals are very reliable and are trained to clean and fix any problems. Make sure your HVAC system is working before you don’t have hot or cool air when you need it.

Three: Clean and Lubricate Your System

If and when you have a professional come over to look at your system, make sure that they clean and lubricate it. You should have this done to both your indoor and outdoor units. Also ask them to check and clean any filters and vents. All of this will help to prevent any major issues such as needing to replace your entire system. Therefore, it is smart to invest in a seasonal checkup instead of a seasonal replacement.
