How to Prepare your HVAC System for Spring
The temperatures have been going up, and the days are finally longer. This means only one thing – spring is right around the corner. Switching from cold winter air and constant heating to fresh spring air and warmth can be tricky for you. It’s easy to underestimate the weather’s influence on you and your household. Also, your HVAC needs a bit of adjusting to warmer weather. Keep reading for tips on how to prepare your HVAC for spring.
1) Clean, clean, clean
The first and probably the most important tip is to clean the system. Talk to your HVAC technicians and ask for a deep clean service. The professionals will know to pay extra attention to the outdoor elements which have been in direct contact with winter weather conditions. The cold and the snow got us all sitting at home, warming up on a couch, and doing the least possible.
It’s questionable have you gotten any time to go check up on the outdoor parts of your unit. There’s a great chance that winter wind had brought a bunch of debris, dust, and dirt to the HVAC unit.
2) Change the Filters
In addition to the first tip, changing the filters on your HVAC is also a great way to be well prepared for spring. You should change them at least once in 3 months, so this may come as an ideal opportunity for that. Unfortunately, allergies come in a package with the lovely spring weather. Cleaning the unit and changing the filters is even more important if you or anyone from your household has problems with allergies. Don’t skip on the regular HVAC maintenance, as it is extremely important for the systems durability.
3) Consider getting a Programmable Thermostat
As the days are getting warmer, you will probably spend more time outside of your place. The tricky part is that the variations in the temperature, especially day vs night, can get you sweating at noon, and shivering at night. Investing in a programmable thermostat can help save you from these, and a few more troubles. You control the temperature, and you can set it however you like and find it comfortable. It is also a great way to save some money. Programmable thermostats can be energy-saving, and they can also lessen the pressure on your HVAC to quickly adapt to drastic temperature changes.
