Spruce Up Your HVAC System So You Can Savor The Sweet Season of Spring!

It’s finally March, and the sweet season of spring is now coming upon us at a frighteningly quick pace. Soon enough, residents all over the Metro East area will be shutting their heaters down, opening their windows, and enjoying the great outdoors.

Before we can enjoy all the wonderful weather that spring brings, though, it would be wise to take some time to do some preventative HVAC maintenance so you won’t be cursing your equipment come summertime!

Did you know that the average lifespan of a properly maintained HVAC system is roughly 18 years? That’s nearly two decades! But to get those long years out of your heating and cooling system, you need to take good care of it!

But guess what? Not only does proper preventative maintenance lead to a longer lifespan for your system, but you’ll also effectively cut the cost of your energy bills since it will be running more efficiently, AND it will break down a lot less! So now you have no reason to NOT run some simple preventative maintenance on your system.

When you have maintenance done on your HVAC system, a technician will first check your condenser coils to make sure they are free of dirt, dust, and other debris. If the condenser is clogged, you may find that it will lose its heat-pulling efficiency, which makes for a higher energy bill for you! This is why it’s vital to clean both inside AND outside of the coil!

Next, they will check for dirty filters and change them if needed. This will help to ensure that the airflow is at its maximum efficiency. This will also prevent any allergens or dirt from building up and causing any harm to you or to your home.

Finally, all pressures as well as the refrigerant level will be checked. If your system has any leaks, then they will need to be fixed. Keep in mind that even a small refrigerant loss can lead to a significant efficiency decrease for your HVAC system!

Preventative maintenance will more than pay for itself in the long run thanks to your HVAC system’s heightened efficiency. It doesn’t pay to skip preventative maintenance when the price could be a broken HVAC system!
