Believe it or not Cincinnati, today is the first day of Spring! There’s no better time to do some spring cleaning around your home and make sure your HVAC equipment is ready for warmer months. Here are some of the most important HVAC spring maintenance checklist items for your Cincinnati home.
Clean Areas Around AC Condensers
When the hot day of summer finally hit Cincinnati, the last thing you want to find out is that your AC isn’t working. Remove any dirt, debris and dead leaves around your outdoor AC unit. Keep these areas clean so your air conditioner doesn’t become clogged. A clogged AC has to work harder to cool your home. In turn, the harder your system works, the more likely it is to break-down.
Schedule a Furnace Inspections
This is a great time of year to have your furnace inspected. First, you can address any issues that may cause a break-down before the cold days end. Second, you can make sure your furnace is running at top efficiency for next year. Lastly, if there are any major problems, you can decide if it is a good time to purchase a new HVAC system or make any needed repairs.
Either way, now is the best time to check your furnace and be ready for next winter.
Check Your Efficiency – Air Filters and Duct
Be sure to change air filters every thirty days during the summer. This will help your AC to run at top performance. Additionally, this is a great time to have a HVAC specialist check for any leaks in your ductwork. Having leaks fixed will increase the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning systems. Also, you will save money on your monthly utility bill.
Schedule a HVAC Spring Maintenance Tune-Up
Make sure your system is ready to run in the spring and summer. Schedule a tune-up with a HVAC specialist to keep your system running efficiently. Preventative maintenance will give you peace of mind knowing your system is operating well. In addition, you’ll avoid costly break-downs in the middle of the summer when your running your air conditioning non-stop.
It’s no fun to wait for a busy technician in 95 plus degree weather. Schedule a preventative maintenance tune-up now and stay cool throughout the spring and summer!
Replace an Older HVAC System
If it’s time to replace your old HVAC system, now is the best time to do it. Schedule a FREE estimate and discuss your options with a HVAC specialist. Replacing an older system for a newer and more efficient system can save more than 20 percent on your heating and air conditioning bill.
In addition, newer systems come with new technology. For example, a NEST learning thermostat learns what temperature you like and builds a schedule around yours. It shows you how much energy you use every day and every month so that you can see when you are using more energy. The NEST thermostat pays for itself by adjusting the temperature as needed.
