HVAC Tips To Help Prepare For Spring & Summer

Spring home hvacSpringtime is on its way to Maryland and Pennsylvania! While you’re preparing for the warmer temperatures that are on the way, don’t forget to also prepare your heating & air conditioning system as well! Here are a few HVAC tips to help you prepare for spring and summer.

1. Replace your filters.

The first step in preparing for a change in seasons is to replace your HVAC filters. During periods of heavy usage, you should clean or replace your filters at least once a month. Dirty filters can cause your air conditioning system to work harder than it needs to!

2. Check your ductwork.

Your ductwork (also known as ventilation system) is an important part of your home’s heating and air conditioning system. Check to make sure any holes are sealed and cracks and connectors in the duct system are taken care of as well.

3) Test your air conditioning unit.

Before the really hot days arrive and you really need your system, test your air conditioning unit by turning on and briefly running it. If there are any problems, you’ll have a heads-up before summer really arrives!

4) Clean around the outdoor unit and clear any obstructions.

The outdoor unit of your HVAC system contains the compressor, which is the most important part of the unit. Make sure that you clear any obstructions away from the outdoor unit, including debris such as plants and leaves.
