Spring is just around the corner. Is your heating and cooling system ready? Spring is an excellent time to give your HVAC system a little TLC. If you’re unsure of where to start, here is a spring maintenance checklist that will get you on track.
Clean everything you can see thoroughly. This includes your outdoor unit. Over the winter, chances are dust, leaves, grit, and grime built up around the outdoor unit, and it’s time to get rid of them. A clean system will function better than one clogged up with grit and grime.
If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, now is the time to do so. Consider upgrading to a more efficient model to help remove some of the dust and allergens from the air that can make your spring allergies worse. A system with a clean air filter will clean the air more effectively while running more efficiently.
Underneath the cabinet below the evaporator fins, your air conditioner likely has a drainage hole. See if you can locate this, and make sure it is cleaned out. Use a paper clip or wire to poke into the hole to clear it from any debris that built up over the winter season.
Spring is the right time to have your air conditioning unit professionally maintained. An annual tune-up will help keep it running as efficiently as possible, so you can enjoy reliable cooling all summer long. At your professional maintenance appointment, your HVAC professional will check and lubricate all moving parts, clean deep inside your system, and ensure it is operating at optimal efficiency.
After you have checked your system and ensured it is working properly, consider making the switch from traditional HVAC to a geothermal system.
Geothermal heat pumps use underground piping and the air outside your home to transfer heat energy, cooling your home in the summer and heating it in the winter. Because they tap into the underground temperatures, which do not fluctuate much from season to season, these systems are highly efficient. In fact, they are considered the most environmentally friendly and energy efficient heating and cooling options available. If you are looking for an investment that will bring long-term energy savings, geothermal is the answer.
