Spring Care for your HVAC System

Spring care is always important. As spring weather begins, now is the perfect time to make sure all the components are working well. You will not only want to check the main unit of the HVAC system, but also the filter. The filter will always need to be checked on a regular basis. By inspecting it, you will want to make sure that it is clean and free of dirt. Filters are designed to capture any dirt or dust that are in the air of your home. This means that eventually they will need to be cleaned and changed. If the filter is clogged, it will cause the main unit to work harder.

Spring care for the system

Remember to check the ductwork this spring as well. Look to see if there are any signs of damage like cracks or puncture marks in it. This can lead to the system leaking out air as it is produced. Warm or cool air, depending on the season, will leak from the ductwork. You will also want to check for any noises that the ductwork might make. This could be an indication that there is an object or build up in there.

You will also want to check the thermostat for the system. If the set temperature is different than the actual temperature, make sure to contact us. There could be a poor connection between the thermostat and the main HVAC system. Make sure that you have this looked at professionally. We can determine what the issue might be and make sure to fix it. The thermostat may also be placed in a less than ideal spot. This will result in a false reading for it when you check. Always make sure that the thermostat is away from any vents or windows of your home. That way the sun will not be able to affect it either.
