Is Your HVAC System Ready for Spring?

With Spring underway, it’s the perfect time to start looking for an HVAC maintenance professional to ensure your home is ready to handle the coming summer heat.

Whether your system is new or has served you for a couple of years, maintaining it this spring can help prolong its life.  It will also be in tiptop shape to cool your home in the hot days ahead.

Here are some tips to help prepare your air conditioner.

Replace Your Air Filter

Changing your system’s air filter regularly will protect against dust and dirt buildup and ensure proper, healthy airflow into your home.  Failure to change your air filters will make your HVAC system run less efficiently, affecting both your comfort and energy bills.

Test for Operation Functionality

Make sure your HVAC system is properly cooling your home to the temperature you set. If it isn’t cooling or heating your home properly, contact Blackwell Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. so an expert can tend to your system quickly.

Tighten Electrical Connections

Ensuring electrical connections can be dangerous if you have not done it before. The HVAC professionals at Blackwell Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. can ensure the connections are correctly secured. Having properly tightened electrical connections maintain safety and extend the system’s lifespan.

Clean Indoor Components and Around Outdoor Units

The cold winter can wreak havoc on HVAC systems, leaving outdoor components full of debris and indoor elements in need of a thorough cleaning.

During the spring and summer months when removing humidity and cooling your homes, you will need a professional to check all drains to ensure proper removal of water in your system.  This will help prevent catastrophic damage to all structures.

Check the refrigerant charge, add refrigerant if needed, and check for leaks to ensure the system will cool your home efficiently.

Having a qualified HVAC professional inspect your HVAC components prevents serious and costly problems.  You’ll find any minor problems your unit may have and be able to get it fixed sooner rather than later.
