Do's & Don'ts for Spring Maintenance on Your Heating & Cooling System, Springfield, Pennsylvania

Spring is right around the corner, and, for many people, that means warmer temperatures and seasonal cleaning. However, it’s also the best time to make sure your heating and cooling system can handle the impending season change. The experts at Adams Heating & Cooling in West Springfield, PA, know how important a functioning HVAC system is for the comfort of your home. Here, these experts share a few do’s and don’ts for maintaining your heating and cooling system so that you can get the most out of your unit.

Do: 

Do Change the Air Filters.

heating and cooling systemsIf your unit uses disposable filters, you have to change them regularly. Before you run your air conditioner this upcoming season, change the filter. However, if your unit has a reusable one, wash it thoroughly. Clean or replace the air filters every three months to ensure your HVAC system is running at top performance; if someone in your home has asthma or you have pets, the filter should be changed every month to clear out allergens and dander.

Do Clean the Unit.

While your heating system was keeping you cozy in the winter, your cooling unit was collecting dust. The dirt and debris can pose a fire risk if not cleaned up, so remove all traces of grime from the vents to achieve optimal airflow, avoid clogs, and reduce the risk of fire.

Don’t:

Don’t Wait Too Long to Act.

To keep your unit running correctly, you should not put off a tuneup. Waiting until the middle of the season to work on your cooling system can leave you with a breakdown when you need it the most; get tuneups at the beginning of the season to keep your home comfortable and ready for optimum cooling.

Don’t Be Unsafe.

Your HVAC system has plenty of electrical and technical components that can be dangerous if you install or repair them incorrectly. It’s best to contact a qualified HVAC contractor to handle any issues beyond your control. Seeking help will not only keep you safe, but it will also prevent your system from getting any more damaged.

This spring, make sure your heating and cooling system can keep you and your family comfortable. If you’re located in Erie County, reach out to Adams Heating & Cooling for all of your HVAC services.
