How to Prepare Your HVAC for a Spring Maintenance Visit

Maintenance agreements provide a convenient way to ensure your HVAC system is ready to go this spring.

Maintenance agreements provide a variety of benefits, such as reliable operation. With your HVAC system potentially turned off for a few months, by the time the spring season begins, you may not be sure if your system will be able to run reliably for the warm spring and summer seasons. Besides having a heating and cool technician come out and inspect your HVAC unit, there are a few things you can do to prepare your system for the springtime.

Check the Condenser

With spring comes warm weather. With warm weather comes the possibility of running an air conditioner. A large number of residential and commercial air conditioners have a condenser that sits outside, exposed to the elements at all times. This means it faces weather extremes, as well as impacts from any debris that flies through the sky or falls from the trees.

Before you anticipate running your air conditioner for long periods, it is wise to inspect the condenser to see if it has any obvious damage from the prior winter months. The last thing you want is a tree branch inside the condenser’s fan that will cause the motor to burn out or a fuse to blow, and that’s if you’re lucky.

Inspect the Air Filters

Ensuring you have clean air filters is a routine maintenance task all HVAC owners should do. The incoming spring season provides an ideal time to conduct this maintenance because neither the heater nor the air conditioner will likely run that often. A dirty air filter is a problem because it can lead to higher HVAC energy usage. Additionally, a dirty air filter does a poor job of cleaning the air.

Maintenance agreements are easy and convenient ways to prepare an HVAC system for the springtime. For those looking to sign up for a maintenance agreement or just need to have an HVAC professional inspect their HVAC system, feel free to contact our team at Climate Control today.
