Spring offers the perfect opportunity to prepare your HVAC system for the warmer months of summer. Proper spring maintenance will ensure that you save on energy costs and stay comfortable during the summer. Here are early spring tips for your HVAC system in Carlisle, PA.
Check and Replace Air Filters
If your filters are dirty, they can restrict proper airflow in your home, leading to high energy bills. They make your HVAC system work harder to cool your home and increase wear and tear. It’s advisable to replace your air filters every month depending on the quality of your indoor air.
There are various types of filters in the market. You can upgrade from your standard filter to more efficient filters that’ll improve your indoor air quality and system performance. You can also choose a filter with the appropriate MERV rating that will not impede the airflow.
Inspect Your Outdoor Unit
For optimal performance, your outdoor compressor unit needs to be level and on a stable surface. You can inspect it visually to look for signs of physical damage. If you spot any damage, you can contact an HVAC service technician to fix your unit.
Your condenser unit might also have debris like leaves, dirt, or tree branches around it. This can affect its efficiency in cooling your home. Ensure that you remove any debris from your unit and place it about 2 feet away from trees or bushes.
Have Your Ducts Cleaned
Your duct system is responsible for distributing conditioned air throughout your home. Debris, dust, or biological contaminants in your ductwork can restrict proper airflow. Have your air ducts professionally cleaned to help increase the efficiency of your system and save on energy costs.
