Spring is the ideal time to thoroughly clean your house and inspect important components for possible winter damage. Along with the usual–windows, siding and roofing–you should pay special attention to your furnace and air conditioning system. Home Air Services, a trusted HVAC company in the area, shares some of the spring maintenance tips you should know below.
Check the ductwork. Holes in your HVAC ductwork can lead to significant energy loss. This occurs when heated or cooled air leaks out of these openings and escapes behind walls or crawl spaces instead of being circulated throughout your house. If you’ve noticed hot or cold spots in some areas of your home, or if the air blowing from your vents seems weak, have the ductwork promptly inspected by Home Air Services.
We’re your go-to company for furnace and air conditioning repair, plus other HVAC-related services. Should we find any holes in the ductwork, we’ll get them sealed. Our skilled, trained experts can also deep clean your ducts if an excessive amount of dust and debris has built up inside them.
Replace your air filter. This is simple, but no less important. By changing your air filter at least once a month (or more often if you have pets or live with loved ones suffering from asthma), you can maintain your home’s indoor air quality. When overlooked, air filters can become clogged, compromising the way conditioned air is distributed throughout your house. Not only that–this can also put unnecessary strain on your HVAC system. For this reason, replacing your air filter should be one of the first things on your spring maintenance checklist.
Schedule an HVAC tune-up. This allows for a more detailed look at the overall condition of your furnace and air conditioner. If you choose Home Air Services for this task, we’ll check all of your unit’s connections, take readings of electrical amp draw and check the level and pressure of its refrigerant. We’ll also give the burner assembly, motor, bearings and belts a close look to verify that they’re still in good shape.
