It hasn’t been a bad winter here in Central Alabama. Sure, we had those freezing temps right before Christmas but all things considered, it’s been all right. Despite what Punxsutawney Phil says, spring will be here before we know it. This is why now is a great time to share a few tips on how to get your HVAC system ready for spring and the hot weather that will follow.
Schedule a spring cleaning/maintenance visit for your HVAC system
Before Central Alabama heats up, you’ll want to schedule a spring HVAC maintenance appointment. Not only does regular maintenance help your system achieve its expected life span, but it can also prevent the need for large and/or expensive repairs.
Change your air filter(s)
Air cannot pass through a dirty air filter, so if you haven’t checked your air filter recently, do so now. If it looks dirty, replace it.
Clear away tree limbs, leaves, and other organic debris around your unit
If your condenser does not have room to breathe because shrubs, tree limbs, and other debris are too close, now is the time to fix that.
Inspect your home for winter damage
If there are any air leaks in your home caused by winter storm damage, there’s a good chance your HVAC system will have to work harder to cool your home. Not only does it burden the system, but you might also notice increased energy bills. To prevent this, be sure to inspect your home for new cracks, gaps, and damage that could let lovely cool air escape.
