Spring will be here sooner than you think. Warmer weather means new challenges for your HVAC system. The Ice-Man, a top Carrier provider in the area, highly recommends taking steps now to ensure your HVAC system is ready. In today’s article, we explain how to prepare your HVAC system.
Change the Filters
First, change the filters on your HVAC system. Clean air filters are important for maintaining your home’s indoor air quality and for making sure that your HVAC system is performing at peak efficiency. Dirty filters can put unnecessary stress on your system, not to mention compromise the air quality inside your home.
Test Your Air Conditioner
You probably haven’t used your air conditioner in awhile because of the cold weather. Before warm weather arrives, you need to make sure your air conditioner still works. Change your thermostat from heating to cooling, and lower the indoor temperature by a few degrees. Observe if cool air is flowing through your duct system.
Get the Outside Unit Cleaned
You should make sure that the outside part of your HVAC system is clean and damage free. Winter weather might have caused debris and ice to in and around the outside unit. We recommend hiring a professional to clean the outside coils of your HVAC unit. This can improve the performance of your HVAC system throughout the spring and summer.
