5 Tips to Get Your HVAC System Ready for Spring

4 Tips to Get Your HVAC System Ready for Spring

Scheduled preventative maintenance helps increase the service life of your heating and cooling system. It helps catch issues before they can cause damage to your unit. A well maintained AC unit will perform well and save money as it will run with greater efficiency.

You have more things to do in spring than handling spring cleaning. As everyone moves into the New Year, spring is just around the corner. This is also the right time to prepare your HVAC system for the coming season. It can not only help save valuable time and money, but also a lot of hassle once the temperatures start rising.

At Air Texas HVAC, we have been providing complete HVAC services since 1997. We recommend you to take the following steps to get your air conditioner ready for spring and be a smart homeowner.

1. Regular Preventative Maintenance

Scheduled preventative maintenance helps increase the service life of your heating and cooling system. It helps catch issues before they can cause damage to your unit. A well maintained AC unit will perform well and save money as it will run with greater efficiency.

2. Clean the Unit

Many homes and businesses have their heating and cooling systems outside. Spending a little time clearing any debris from around the coils can help you make the system run better. It can also increase its lifespan. There is a good chance that the outside unit is cluttered with winter debris.

The cold winter temperatures typically keep people indoors, preventing them from doing much outdoors. This is the right time to get out and clear out all debris from around the unit. Don’t let the branches, leaves, and other debris to sit until the spring. Combined with dirt and dust, the clutter will force your HVAC system to work harder, waste more energy, and increase your bills.

  • Clean all registers and vents
  • Keep the airways clean from dirt, dust, and pet dander

This can also help keep the air clean in your building.

3. Look for Any Air Leaks

While scheduled preventative maintenance can help in identifying most of the potential issues, it is recommended to check for any air leaks before spring. Air leaks in the insulation can cause the system to work harder, increasing the cost of operation.

If you notice any leaks or damages, call your HVAC maintenance company to have them fixed. Check the pipe insulation and condensate lines. A condensate line is a dripping line and if it is not working properly, it may cause drainage problems in your building. Thus, inspection can not only help you save on energy bills, but also prevent costly damage to your home or office building.

4. Test the Air Conditioner

Since it has been freezing condition for months, running your air conditioner must have been the last thing on your mind. Before spring sets it, you should run and test the unit to find any issues. It is recommended to adjust the thermostat setting from heat to cool and set it back to check how the system is working.
