It's time for spring cleaning! Most people give every room in their home, and sometimes even their garage a good once over to get rid of the staleness that lingers after a long winter. While you're making your cleaning list for the house, create a maintenance list that includes HVAC services as well. It doesn't do any good to just clean the inside of your home if your HVAC unit is just going to be blowing the winter dust around.

Why Consider HVAC Spring Maintenance?

As the warm weather arrives, the need for air conditioning becomes unavoidable. Late spring and summer is the peak time for AC use and HVAC repair specialists are in high demand during this period. With overused air conditioning units, anything can go wrong and you may need a specialist.

Spring HVAC Maintenance Checklist.

Inspect the indoor coil for cleanliness and clean if necessary.

Inspect the furnace or air handler blower assembly for proper operation and cleanliness.

Change your filters every 1-3 months depending on your filter.
Inspect all electrical connections.

Check the operation of the compressor and outdoor fan motor.

Check the refrigerant levels. If levels are low, check for a leak first before you replace the refrigerant.

Check the drainage hole at the base of your air conditioning unit. Use a paper clip or wire to poke through the drainage hole to make sure it is free from any blockage.

If you have a dehumidifier, remove the housing and let the unit dry out completely. Vacuum the surface area and any crevices.
