Ultimate Guide to Spring AC Maintenance

The arrival of spring is the perfect time for homeowners to get their HVAC systems in shape for the coming summer season. Many people may not have thought about their cooling system for months. However, as the weather gets warmer, the summer heat will eventually arrive. Fortunately, by taking simple HVAC spring maintenance steps now, you can keep your unit running optimally all year long.

Replace Air Filters

Filters are one essential component of your HVAC System unit that needs frequent attention. They easily get clogged and dirty, which can directly affect how well your heating and cooling systems work. If not cleaned promptly, a dirty filter can cause restricted airflow, energy wastage, and damage to your unit.

Schedule a Regular System Check

Despite regular maintenance, some issues may only be noticeable by a trained professional. Have a certified HVAC technician perform a system check at least once a year. They can identify potential problems early, perform necessary maintenance, and ensure your system is running at peak efficiency.

Clean and Maintain Outdoor Units

Your outdoor air conditioning unit plays a vital role in keeping your home cool and comfortable. Remove leaves, debris and dirt from the surrounding area and gently clean the unit using a garden hose. Proper maintenance of your outdoor unit will help ensure efficient performance.

Inspect and Clean Ductwork

Clean ductwork is essential for optimal HVAC performance. Over time, dust, debris and allergens can accumulate in your ducts, affecting your indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Watch out for signs of dirty or damaged ductwork, like uneven temperatures, musty smells, or higher energy costs. If you suspect any issues, have a professional HVAC Technician from FOX inspect and clean your ducts.

Check and Adjust the Thermostat Settings

As the weather warms up, it’s important to adjust your thermostat settings accordingly, by setting your thermostat to the recommended temperatures you can keep your home comfortable while saving on energy costs. If you have a programmable thermostat, consider adjusting your schedule to account for changes in your routine during the spring season.

Test and Maintain Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon monoxide detectors are essential for your family’s safety. Test your detectors at least once a month by pressing the test button and replace the batteries as needed. Regular maintenance of your detectors can help prevent carbon monoxide-related incidents.

A spring cleaning and maintenance service reduces the chances of the AC system breaking down when you need it the most. Hiring a certified HVAC technician will ensure all moving components are oiled and in good working condition. A spring checkup can uncover potential problems that can occur in the middle of a heat wave. This is exactly what we want to avoid.
