Preparing Your HVAC System for Warmer Weather

Spring is approaching, and with that, it will be time to get your HVAC system ready for warmer weather. There are many things you can do to ensure that your HVAC system is ready for the warm weather that is coming.

Air Filter Replacement

Your air filter is an integral part of your HVAC system. It helps to get dust, debris, allergens, and more out of your air. A clogged filter will have your indoor air quality poor, and it will make your system work harder than it should. You should change it or wash it depending on the instructions in your owner’s manual. You should replace your air filter at least every month to two months.

Cleaning the HVAC System to Prepare for Spring

Next, you will want to clean around the furnace and evaporator inside your home. Remove anything that is close to the area, and dust everywhere. Check the evaporator to see if there is any water beneath the evaporator. If you find some, you will want to call out an HVAC professional to address the problem.

You will also want to go outside to your outdoor system. During warm weather months, you may find that dirt, debris, and pollen build up. Washing this down will help to ensure the proper functionality of your HVAC system.

Inspect the Thermostat

You will want to test your thermostat to ensure that it is working. Turn it on to cool to make sure that your air conditioner responds. If it does not, replace the batteries in your thermostat and retest. If you still do not see anything come on you will want to prepare to call an HVAC technician to come out and do a repair.

Duct Inspection

Another great way to prepare for warm weather months is to have your air duct system inspected. You should check these at least once a year. A technician will look for holes or any damage.

Schedule a Checkup to Prepare for Spring

The best way to prepare for the warm weather months is to have an HVAC professional come out to do a tune-up. During a tune-up, an HVAC technician will check the system for any issues. They will also check for leaks, check the refrigerant, and see if your system needs repairs. If your system needs repairs, they will tell you what you need to do. Having those repairs done this spring will help you to prepare for those warm summer months.
