Your HVAC Checklist for Spring
With spring underway, it’s time to make sure the HVAC system in your Orange Park, Florida, home is ready to take on the summer heat. Call your HVAC contractor to schedule service so you can make sure you complete your HVAC checklist for spring.
Before summer hits and you have to run your air conditioner around the clock, make sure it is ready to take on the heat. Schedule preventive maintenance or a tuneup with your HVAC contractor to make sure your air conditioner is working efficiently. Spring is the ideal time since, with the nicer temperatures, you can afford the downtime while your contractor works on the system. You wouldn’t want to have to do without air conditioning during the hot summer months, whether for maintenance or repairs. By doing your maintenance now, your contractor can spot any potential issues before the summer heat hits.
Clean Your Air Filters
When your air conditioner is working hard to keep your home cool during the summer, your air filters tend to get dirty and clogged faster. Even though your HVAC contractor will change your air filters during the preventive maintenance inspection, you still need to clean and change them on your own in between service checks. Ask your contractor to show you how, and keep an eye on your filters during the summer to make sure they don’t get dirty.
Check Your IAQ
Your IAQ is of particular importance during the spring and summer where seasonal allergies tend to be an issue. If you have allergies, you may already know that the outside air can aggravate them, but you may not realize that the air inside your house can affect you too. Have your IAQ tested and make sure you carry out strategies to keep the air inside your home fresh and clean throughout the entire year.
