It’s almost that time of the year when we'll open the windows to smell the fresh air to clear the dust and start clearing out some of the clutter from the winter. However, the large appliances of your home, like your HVAC unit, are just as important as the visuals and organization of your home. By taking the right steps to prepare your air conditioning unit will ensure you are ready for comfort once the heat from the summer arrives. Below are five important tips to getting your HVAC and Air Conditioning unit ready for optimal service this season.
Replace/Clean Your Filter
Replacing your filter is the first step to having an efficiently running AC unit. Dirt and grime can cause the moving parts of your air conditioning unit to cease, freeze up and also release extra dust/allergens into the air of your home. Keep an extra few filters near your furnace to change/replace monthly during the HVAC busy season.
Outdoor AC Unit
Make sure to check around the perimeter of the AC unit. Cut & clear out any overgrowth of plants and remove any items that may have fallen onto the unit. Air flow through the screens is important for optimal usage. It is ideal to take a leaf blower to clear out any dirt and/or leaves from inside the screen. Also, take a look at the drain hole on the unit to ensure it is clear so condensation can drain from the unit.
Seal Your Ductwork
It is very common for the ductwork to have imperfections in some areas, especially in the older homes. Any holes will lead to wasted air exchange and wasted money.
Keep in mind that mold, dust, and mildew will build up inside your duct work. We highly recommend having on of our Cappy professionals come to your home and clean it for you. There are several benefits to this which lead to increased efficiency of your AC & Furnace Units and reduced allergens that can cause sickness.
Test Run your AC Unit
There is nothing worse than having a hot home with a non-working AC unit. This can all be avoided by testing the unit for a few hours this spring to make sure it is working properly. Preparation is key to your comfort this summer!
