Spring is in the air and it’s the perfect time for home maintenance projects including HVAC tune-up. It’s during this time that you should have the most emphasis on having your heating and cooling checked out. Call your local HVAC contractor to book early maintenance. Don’t wait too long since many will be wanting to have theirs maintained as well. Read the rest of this article to find out more about what you can do to keep your HVAC in good running condition.
Ways to warm up your HVAC unit for spring
Slowly run your AC unit for certain durations
One of the best things you can do is to wake your air conditioning from hibernation. But don’t crank up your AC just yet. It’s still cold outside and dialing up your AC will just expose you to freezing temperatures. Slowly ease your way up and run your air conditioning for a few minutes at a time during noon or the hottest part of the day. Check the system for any unusual noise, smell, and anything odd. If you do find some, call your local air conditioning contractor and schedule a checkup.
Schedule professional HVAC maintenance
There are signs that will indicate problems with your HVAC system. However, not all of them are easily identified. If you really want to make sure that your system is in good condition and ready for spring and summer, be sure to schedule maintenance from a professional North Myrtle Beach HVAC contractor. Although you can perform DIY maintenance, it is still advised to have a professional do the checking.
Make sure all drafts are sealed
It’s highly likely that most of the drafts in your home have been fixed before winter came. However, it does not ensure that all of them are gone. Drafts are notorious for increasing your energy bill and putting a strain on your heating and cooling. All drafts must be sealed to ensure optimum HVAC performance.
Have the ductwork cleaned and maintained
The air conditioning system in your home relies on ductwork to move air. It is important that all ducts are cleaned before spring comes. Dust and other debris must be cleaned out to make sure that you are not breathing any dirty air. Doing so will also improve the air quality inside your home.
Make sure your thermostat is functioning
Another thing that you need to check out is your thermostat. Is it still giving an accurate reading? This is critical since the thermostat is the component that tells the system when to regulate the temperatures. If your existing thermostat is no longer providing accurate figures, you should replace it. Better yet, upgrade to a programmable one. You may contact NMB HVAC Pros for more information on smart thermostats and have your old one replaced. It will cost you some money but the convenience it offers will automatically start paying for itself during your first use.
