Okay, so there may be snow on the ground, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be preparing for spring. It will be here before you know it. And you know what that means, right? Spring Cleaning! The time to bust out the broom and dustpan, mop and bucket, feather duster, and the trusty vacuum cleaner. There is cleaning to be done! But don’t forget your HVAC system.
Spring Cleanup and HVAC Maintenance
That’s right; HVAC maintenance should be part of your spring cleaning regimen. This will not only help boost the energy efficiency of your HVAC system, but will also help improve comfort and indoor air quality, while minimizing costly breakdowns.
Spring Cleanup and HVAC Maintenance Checklist
- Whether your heating and air conditioning system is new or old, lack of proper maintenance by a licensed and qualified HVAC contractor is one of the leading causes of malfunctioning equipment and high operation costs. So have your HVAC system professionally inspected before cooling and heating season. An HVAC maintenance contract can help! Fresh Air Concepts offers several membership plans geared towards extending the life of your system through meticulous inspections and maintenance.
- Don’t forget to replace your furnace and air conditioning filters every three months. More if you have allergies or pets. This will not only help make your HVAC system more efficient, but it will also improve the indoor air quality (IAQ) of your home.
- Check attic insulation levels. Simply climb into your attic and look across the floor joists. Is the insulation above or below the joists? If it is below the joists, you need to add more insulation. “The recommended level for most attics is to insulate to R-38 or about 10 to 14 inches, depending on insulation type,” according to Energy Star. R-Value is a measure of the insulation’s ability to resist heat flow.
Ignoring HVAC maintenance could cost you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in repairs and unnecessary energy costs.
