Is Your HVAC System Ready For Spring? Talk To A Local HVAC Specialist
Spring marks the time of year when severe thunderstorms, flash flooding, and tornadoes are most likely to sweep through League City, TX. Is your HVAC system ready to get you through any type of weather? While you’re working your way down that annual “spring cleaning” checklist this season, consider adding your HVAC system to the list. Wondering what you can do get your HVAC system ready for spring? Here are a few ideas for you.
Change Your Filters
It’s recommended you change your filters every 1-3 months. Having a dirty air filter can slow down the airflow inside your home, causing your HVAC unit to work harder. Your unit doesn’t work extra hard for free, though. If you’ve noticed your electricity bills have been skyrocketing, it could be due to clogged and/or dirty filters putting a strain on your equipment. When you change your filters, you’ll:
- Save on energy use
- Prevent allergies
- Increase your overall airflow
- Prolong the life span of your HVAC unit.
Clean Your Ducts
The spring is a perfect time to get your ducts in a row. Indoor air quality is important to you and your family’s health. If you have dirty ducts in your home, you’re breathing in all those pollutants, such as dirt, pet dander, dust, and rodent debris, which trigger allergies, asthma, and other related illnesses. Depending on the activity inside your home, it’s recommended you invest in a duct cleaning every 3-5 years. It’s especially important if:
- Children or seniors are living with you
- You have pets
- Someone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma
- You’ve recently bought or renovated your home
- You don’t recall the last time you had your ducts cleaned
Install A Programmable Thermostat
To avoid spending more money on electricity bills, consider installing a programmable thermostat this spring. With this advanced home solution, you will always have consistent temperatures throughout your home. Programmable thermostats allow you to automatically adjust the temperature, whether you’re at home or when you’re away. This not only saves you money on electricity bills, but it also provides optimal comfort for you at all times.
Schedule A Maintenance
Treating your HVAC unit to a routine maintenance is one of the best things you can do for your home. Homeowners rely on their system to keep them cool in the summer and warm in the winter. By scheduling annual maintenances, you’re keeping your system running at high-quality through every season. There are many other reasons why an annual maintenance is important.
- Improves the efficiency of your unit
- Extends the life of you HVAC system
- Improves the air quality inside your home
- Provides home comfort you can count on
There’s nothing worse than your HVAC unit failing in the middle of a winter storm or heat wave. By scheduling an annual maintenance, you’re ensuring your HVAC system is ready for spring – and every other season.
