Prepare Your HVAC System For Spring
A new season has arrived, and that means it’s time to start thinking about how to prepare your HVAC system for spring. With warmer temperatures on the way, you want to make sure your HVAC system is working efficiently and effectively to keep your home comfortable in every season. Here are some tips on how to prepare your HVAC system for the spring.
Replace Your Air Filters
One of the easiest and most important things you can do to prepare your HVAC system for spring is to replace your air filters. Over time, air filters can become clogged with dust, dirt, and other debris, which can cause your system to work harder than it needs to. This not only reduces the efficiency of your system but also puts unnecessary strain on the components, which can cause them to wear out faster. By replacing your air filters at the start of the spring season, you can help ensure that your system is working efficiently and that the air in your home is clean and fresh.
Check Your Thermostat Settings
As the weather starts to warm up, you’ll want to adjust your thermostat settings to reflect the changing temperatures. If you have a programmable thermostat, take the time to adjust your settings to reflect your new schedule and preferences. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may consider upgrading to one with Aero Energy. This will allow you to set your temperature settings to automatically adjust based on your daily routine and can help save you money on your energy bills. For example, many homeowners adjust their settings in the evenings and while they are away at work.
Schedule an HVAC Tune-Up
To ensure that your HVAC system is working properly and efficiently, it’s important to schedule a professional tune-up at least once a year. Spring is an ideal time to have your system checked, as it will help ensure that your AC unit is ready to handle the warm temperatures ahead. A professional technician can inspect your system for any signs of wear and tear, clean your ducts and vents, and make any necessary repairs or replacements to worn-down components. We recommend the SafeGuard Tune-Up to all Aero Energy customers.
Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Your outdoor AC unit can become clogged with dirt, leaves, sticks, and other debris over the winter months, which can reduce its efficiency and cause it to work harder than it needs to. Before you start using your AC unit, take the time to clean it thoroughly. This will help ensure that it’s working efficiently and effectively to cool your home.
Consider Upgrading Your System
If your HVAC system is more than 10 years old, it may be time to consider upgrading to a more energy-efficient model. This can help save you money on your energy bills and can also help reduce your carbon footprint.
