3 Steps to Prepare Your HVAC System for Spring, Urbana, Ohio

As the weather warms up and the sun comes out, the way you use your HVAC system will naturally change. Springtime means shutting off your furnace for the year and preparing to use your AC unit. To make sure your appliances are ready, perform these basic maintenance tasks that ensure a smooth start for your cooling unit.

Prepare Your HVAC System for Spring in 3 Steps

1. Clean Your Units

HVAC SystemAfter a long winter of steady use, your furnace’s burners are likely in need of a thorough cleaning. The same goes for your air conditioner; otherwise, it will expel dust when you turn it on for the first time. Clean both systems, including burners, grates, and coils. You should also consider contacting your local HVAC technician about air duct cleaning.

2. Change Filters

Similarly, spring is a good time to change the filters on both your heating and cooling systems. Both need periodic changes to run smoothly, and you especially want to make sure that airflow isn’t obstructed when you turn your air conditioner on for the season.

3. Get an Inspection

Regular maintenance and inspections ensure that your HVAC system runs smoothly and efficiently, and that any problems are caught early while they’re still easy to fix. This type of preventive maintenance can lower your heating and cooling costs by increasing your system’s efficiency, and it can also extend the life of your air conditioner and furnace. Your yearly AC inspection doesn’t have to be in spring, but this is a good time for it, so consider scheduling with your technician.

By taking the time to prepare your HVAC equipment for the changing seasons, you can make sure everything is in working order and protect your air quality in the coming year. If you have any questions about this process, contact your HVAC company today.
