Preparing Your HVAC System for Springtime
As the days get longer and the weather starts to warm up, it's time to start thinking about preparing your HVAC system for spring. Taking care of your HVAC system now can go a long way towards preventing costly repairs later. It will also help you stay comfortable during those hot summer months.
Here's how you can prepare your HVAC system for the upcoming season!
1. Change Your Filters
Changing the filters is the first step in preparing your HVAC system for spring. The filters capture dust, dirt, and other debris, so they should be changed regularly. If they become clogged or dirty, they won't be able to do their job properly and can cause strain on your system. Most manufacturers recommend changing your filters every one to three months, depending on usage and environmental conditions.
2. Clean Coils and Fans
Another important step in prepping your HVAC system is cleaning the coils and fans. Over time, dirt, dust, and other debris can accumulate on these components, reducing their efficiency or even causing them to malfunction. You'll need a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment or a soft-bristled brush to clean them.
Start by vacuuming off any loose debris, then use the brush attachment or soft-bristled brush to get into all of the nooks and crannies of the coils and fan blades. Once you're done cleaning all the components, wipe them down with a damp cloth or sponge to remove any remaining dirt or dust particles.
