For many homeowners across the country, spring is the perfect time to do a bit of deep cleaning. While organizing and sprucing up around the house is probably at the top of your list, spring is also the best time to give your furnace and air conditioning system a little TLC. In today’s article, trusted HVAC installation contractors from A-1 Comfort Care share three important maintenance tips to keep your furnace and air conditioning system running smoothly throughout the year.
Change your air filter. Changing your air filter is the number one spring maintenance tip for two reasons: it requires very little effort to do and will have a huge impact not only on your HVAC system but on your health as well. A fresh air filter can reduce energy consumption and improve air quality in your home. This is especially important in the spring, when allergies are common due to pollen and other allergens.
Check your ductwork. Ask any residential HVAC services provider and they’ll be quick to tell you that the ductwork is an integral part of any home’s HVAC system. Check to see if there are any holes or leaks, especially around the joints, and seal them up properly. While you’re at it, make sure that your vents and return vents are unobstructed.
Schedule preventive maintenance. Over time, many components of your furnace and air conditioning unit will become worn out and eventually need to be replaced. Hiring a professional in the spring to check for any potential problems will help ensure that you stay cool in the summer and warm during the winter.
