3 Tips to Prepare Your HVAC System for Spring, Yorktown Heights, New York

As the cold weather begins to fade, it will soon be time to turn the furnace off and air conditioning on. You want to ensure your HVAC system is primed and ready for the change, which is why it’s important to take a few preliminary steps before starting. The following tips will ensure the best air quality and service so you can continue living comfortably as the seasons progress.

How to Get Your HVAC System Ready for Springtime

1. Schedule an Inspection

There’s no substitute for a professional’s hand, so have an HVAC service inspect your air conditioning unit. After months of not being used, there may be internal buildup that needs to be cleaned, parts that need to be lubricated, and other issues that are invisible to the untrained eye.

2. Change the Air Filters

When cool air can’t properly flow through your air filters, your system has to work harder to achieve the programmed temperature. Air filters should be changed at least every six to 12 months, so inspect all of those in your home and replace as needed. If your ducts are dirty, you may want to schedule a cleaning as well. This will ensure the best service and improve the air quality in your home.

3. Test the Thermostat

Following the inspection, fire up your air conditioner and let it run for a little while. Program various temperatures and see if they’re being met. If you’re dealing with a faulty thermostat, consider upgrading to a smart option that offers mobile functionality and improved climate control.
