With the first day of Spring behind us and Summer on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to get a little spring cleaning done on your HVAC system. After heavy usage of your heater during the winter months, wear and tear can take its toll. Routine maintenance can help make sure that things are working properly and are free of debris which can inhibit efficiency and functionality. Before temperatures rise, and you reach to turn down the dial on your thermostat, performing some AC maintenance can help keep you in the cool!
What’s Living Inside of Your Vents
Ventilation systems prove to be the perfect breeding grounds for all sorts of allergens. Dust mites, pollen, mold, and other debris can seek sanctuary within your vents, causing allergies and all kinds of health problems. Annual cleaning of your vent system is recommended to improve air quality. The times to perform this routine maintenance is either during spring or fall. Cleaning out the vents themselves and changing out the filters can improve the air quality immensely.
A clean HVAC system will run more efficiently. Regardless of if you are running the AC or the heater, a system that has a lot of built up debris will have to work harder to maintain its temperature. This require more energy, which ultimately will drive up your operating costs and cause more wear and tear on your HVAC unit. Part of routine AC maintenance will entail cleaning, but also lubricating of mechanical parts, and inspection and replacement or worn out parts.
There is nothing worse than riding heat wave in the middle of summer and your AC goes out. While not all breakdowns can be prevented, most can be mitigated by performing regular AC maintenance. A proper inspection will detect any problems and allow you to make repairs before your AC decides to keel over when you need it most.
