Spring HVAC System Checklist
What's on Your Spring HVAC Checklist?
Spring is almost here and that means it’s time to start your spring HVAC system review to prepare your home for warmer weather. To ensure your heating and cooling system is running its best all year long, here are a few tips to follow before spring and summer weather arrives.
Have a professional clean your system
Your heating and cooling system needs to be in tip-top shape in order to work keep you cool during the warm summer months here in Illinois. A good professional cleaning will maximize airflow and increase your system's efficiency and performance.
Change your furnace filter
Your filter should be changed every season. This means changing your filter before the cooling season in fall and before the warming season in spring. A fresh and clean filter will also help reduce the number of allergens in your home's indoor air. This could mean fewer allergies and fewer trips to the doctor.
Upgrade your thermostat
Energy bills tend to skyrocket during spring and summer. Keeping your house cool and comfortable without breaking your budget can be a little challenging. By upgrading to a programmable thermostat, you can program your cooling system to vary your home's temperature based on your schedule which means your air conditioner won't have to cool an empty house.
Schedule some preventative maintenance
A little heating and cooling system preventative maintenance can go a long way in saving you tons of money all year long. During an inspection, an HVAC professional will inspect your system thoroughly looking for any damaged or worn parts or leaks that may cause your AC unit to work inefficiently which can cause more serious damage down the road.
Consider a full upgrade
As the colder weather departs, it may be time for a complete upgrade of your HVAC system. If your energy bills over the winter were a little steep or your system is old and outdated, then consider a complete replacement. An HVAC professional can help you determine if a complete replacement is needed or if you simply need a few home improvements such as insulation and air sealing.
You don't want to be stuck in a hot house during spring and summer due to a broken down or poorly working air conditioner. Just like you want your home warm during the cold winter days, you want it cool during summer. Have your heating and cooling system prepared for the warm days to come by hiring a professional service technician to get your system springtime ready.
