There are two main seasons when it comes to HVAC maintenance: spring and fall. With spring around the corner it’s important to ensure that your HVAC system gets you all the way through the hot summer nights to follow. As a homeowner, not only do you have to ensure that your home maintains a comfortable temperature, you have to make sure the air circulating through your home is free of pollen and other allergens that the spring months are known for.
Change your Air Filter
Most furnace filters are designed to last between 30-90 days before needing to be changed. Your system’s air filters are imperative for maintaining your homes indoor air quality, filtering out dust pollen and other seasonal allergens. It’s good to form habits when it comes to your home’s general maintenance. While you should already be inspecting your filter every month, you should make a habit of replacing the filter in the beginning of spring and fall every year.

Inspect your unit
As you begin to spend more time outside cleaning up after winter, don’t neglect to look at your appliances. It’s important to take a look at your home’s AC unit to ensure it is free of debris and infestation of pests. If you notice any damage or issues with your unit it’s important to call a professional for help.
Schedule a Maintenance Call
Your furnace has been running all winter long while your AC unit has been sitting virtually untouched, exposed to the elements and whatever critter wants to make it a home. A routine seasonal inspection can ensure that your HVAC is ready for the long spring and summer seasons ahead. HVAC maintenance and inspections should only be conducted by a TRAINED PROFESSIONAL to ensure it is done right and not unintentionally damaged. AC units for example can contain freon and other refrigerants which are not only hazardous to your health but can have a negative environmental impact if not handled properly.
