Prepare for Spring with a Thorough Check of your HVAC System
Spring cleaning time is here! There are already some obvious chores on your to-do list, however here are a few more to add to your list to keep your HVAC system in great condition. To keep your house in top shape, all systems need an annual checkup. You don’t want to wait until that first hot and humid day to turn on your system to find out if it is working properly!
Prepare Your Air Conditioner Unit
Even a fairly new system needs regular maintenance to run efficiently. Ensure that debris is removed, drainage holes are clear, and filters are changed as necessary. We also suggest you schedule regular maintenance on your heating and cooling systems by one of our HVAC experts.
Due Diligence with your Dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers are a considerable help when fighting allergies in the spring. To keep your dehumidifier working properly, remove its housing and let the unit dry completely. Vacuum every accessible surface and crevice.
Dust Your Air Ducts
Dirt, dust, and allergens can build up in your air ducts over the winter. It is important to get your air ducts cleaned annually to ensure the best possible air quality in your home and to save on energy costs.
Scrub Your Ceiling Fans
Clean the dust off your ceiling fans so that the particles on it don’t get moved around the house when you turn it on this spring. To do this, we suggest you take the cover off, wash it in soapy water and clean the dirt off the fan blades with a toothbrush.
