Warmer days begin popping up in the spring season and that is a signal that the summer heat is not far behind. To get ahead of the heat, you should take time to get your HVAC system and air conditioner ready for a season of running and keeping your family cool and comfortable.
Your air conditioner sits outside all year long and can collect dirt, debris, dust and more. As the snow melts and it is warm enough to spend time outside, take a moment to inspect your air conditioner to see how dirty it has gotten over the fall and winter. Sweep up and brush off any large and visible debris and leaves around and on your AC. Check and see if there are any critters around that have tried to burrow into a warmer space.
Sure your thermostat and HVAC system have worked just fine with each other on the “heat” setting, but it is best to check them out with the “cool” switch. Turn your system to cool and let it run for a few minutes to see how it performs. This test is best left for a warmer spring day.
While you should be on a regular schedule to change your air filters in your HVAC system, the change of seasons is an especially important time. There could be a buildup of particles that could affect your air quality and impact your breathing if you have asthma or allergies. Having consistently clear air filters helps your HVAC system run and perform at an optimal level all year long.

If you are an allergy or asthma sufferer, discuss with our team members how an air purifier can make a difference in your home’s air quality. When an air purifier is installed as part of your HVAC system, you will have “cleaner” air as the purifier will catch particles and cycle this refreshed air throughout your home.
