7 Tips to ready your HVAC for Spring
Spring is here and with it comes spring cleaning, and ensuring your HVAC is prepared for the hot weather that is always inevitable in the Arkansas.
Here are a few hints from Precise Heating and Air to help guarantee your HVAC prepared:
1. Schedule maintenance for your HVAC system.
Preventative maintenance will help your system last longer. When you maintain your AC properly you save money and help your HVAC system perform better.
2. Invest in a programmable thermostat.
These days digital thermostats can be programmed from almost anywhere… even your phone but more importantly they give you the ability to control the temperature in your home while you are away. This saves you money.
3. Clean Your HVAC.
Outside units need love too. Periodically checking the HVAC units outdoors to make sure the coils are clear of dirt and debris helps. This simple action helps your system to run more efficiently.
4. Filters are your best friend.
Changing your air filters is essential to the health of your air conditioner. When you change the old filters and replace them the result is cleaner air. Replacing filters not only keeps the dirt out and improves indoor air quality, it allows your system to work more efficiently.
5. Insulate and prevent air leaks.
Any air leaks in your home can cause your HVAC system to run more often than needed. Sealing these leaks can save you money.
6. Dirty Vents and Registers are a no-no
Keeping vents and registers free of excess dust, particles and other allergens that can build up in the home (i.e. your pets hair) helps improve the efficiency of your unit.
7. Inspect condensation lines.
A condensation line is a drip line coming from your HVAC unit. A dripping line could not only cause drainage issues in your home. A simple inspection of this line each season can help save you from higher utility bills.
