Well before the first heatwave of the year, you will need to spend a little bit of time working on your HVAC system. With a little bit of springtime maintenance, you can make sure that your HVAC system is going to run smoothly and efficiently throughout the sweltering summer months.
Replace the Old Filters
The very first step in this process is replacing your HVAC system’s air filter. Even if you haven’t been using your HVAC system, that filter could still be clogged with contaminants that are floating through your home. Replacing the filter is going to boost the efficiency of the system and improve your indoor air quality.
Clean the Registers and Vents
Over the course of a few months, quite a bit of dust will collect on all of the registers and vents throughout your home. To clean them, all you are going to need is a soft cloth and a high-quality household cleaning product. You might also want to spend a few minutes cleaning off all of the fan blades in your home so that they don’t spread dust and other airborne contaminants when they are turned on.
Clean the Outdoor Condenser
The average residential HVAC system is going to have an outdoor condenser, and that unit can usually be found on the roof or the side of the home. At least a few times a year, you should clean that unit with a hose and make sure that there isn’t any debris trapped in the fins or fan blades. If there is any foliage within a few feet of the unit, then that should be cleared away as well.
Schedule a Service Call
In addition to carrying out some basic maintenance on your own, you should also contact Carson Brothers Montana and schedule a spring tune-up. During your service call, a technician can carefully inspect the entire system and make sure that it is running smoothly.
