As temperatures start to warm up you’ll soon be depending on your home’s air conditioning to keep you cool.
You don’t want to wait until it gets hot outside only to turn on the A/C and find out it’s not working properly. By that time, it’s too late and you’ll be sweating it out waiting for the professionals to arrive at one of their busiest times of the year. Making sure your home’s HVAC system is ready for summer early makes sense for a lot of reasons. Check the following components before summer arrives:
If you’ve had any problems with your thermostat or it seems outdated, replacing it can ensure your system is working efficiently and can also save you money. A programmable thermostat can lower your energy costs while keeping you comfortable.
- Air Filter
Your air filters should be changed regularly, and they should also be replaced at the beginning of the cooling season and heating season. Clean air filters can also make your HVAC system more efficient.
Your system’s vents are the way air is delivered to your home, so make sure they aren’t blocked by furniture, dust, or window coverings. You can dust off your vents but you may need to have them professionally cleaned.
Exposed ductwork can certainly create problems, so check to make sure there are no signs of wear or damage. If anything looks out of place, call in a professional to determine a solution.
- A/C Unit
The actual unit also should be checked out. Be sure nothing is blocking the area around it and that the refrigerant lines are properly insulated. Many of us are not experts on HVAC systems so call in a professional so you are safe and not sorry.
