When spring is in the air, thoughts of home maintenance, both inside and outside, are often on the minds of homeowners. Spring is the perfect time to do a little cleaning and organizing around your home, but you shouldn’t forget to show a little love for your furnace and air conditioner as well. After all, they kept you and your family comfortable throughout the winter. In today’s post, Richardson Air Systems shares three spring maintenance tips to keep your HVAC system running smoothly for the rest of the year.
Check your vents. In order for your entire HVAC system to function properly, air needs to be able to circulate freely throughout your home. Check to make sure that there are no boxes or furniture blocking its path and make sure that all the vents are open and properly adjusted. A blocked vent can cause your HVAC system to work that much harder, which leads to higher heating and cooling bills.
Change your air filter. Not only is changing your air filter one of the most important things you can do for your HVAC system, it’s also the easiest. A clean air filter can have a positive impact not only on your HVAC system, but your family’s health as well. If you own a disposable filter, HVAC contractors recommend changing it out at least every three months. If you have a washable filter, give it a good cleaning.
Schedule maintenance. Needless to say, your HVAC system plays a crucial role in keeping your family cool during the summer and warm during the winter. While most air conditioners and furnaces are built to last, they’re not indestructible, and regular maintenance is required in order for them to continue running smoothly. To make sure they stay in excellent condition, book a professional maintenance service provider to do an inspection.
