Spring is a welcome change from the winter, and with it comes warm temperatures, family fun, and a breath of fresh air. However, that doesn't mean that everything is perfect in your home's HVAC system. Luckily, there are ways to welcome spring with open arms in your Richmond, Virginia, home. By starting your HVAC maintenance schedule early this spring, you'll have the best air quality and comfort you've ever experienced. Here's how to get it started.
Change Your Filter
Because your air conditioner went into hibernation during the winter, its filter probably isn't up to snuff. That's why you need to take the opportunity to change it as soon as possible. During inactivity, these filters gather dust and debris, making air quality poor and forcing your HVAC system to work harder. The result is uncomfortable temperatures and a hefty bill from monthly energy costs and maintenance expenses.
Schedule a Tuneup
When your air conditioner lies dormant for an extended period, it may develop slight problems. To alleviate the stress of a broken air conditioner and to make sure your unit is in tip-top shape, you should hire us to come out and inspect your air conditioner. During our inspection, we'll let you know what needs fixing and what can wait. At the end of the day, you're left with an air conditioner that keeps humming along throughout spring and into summer.
Clean Your Air Conditioner
During winter, the outside portion of your air conditioner is exposed to the elements. While most units are surprisingly resilient, they could still use thorough cleansings. While we'll help during a tuneup, you can start the process by turning off the power and taking a hose to the outside components. This will help remove debris, keep your air conditioner running, and give us a clean slate.
Spring HVAC maintenance isn't always a consideration for homeowners, but it will definitely give you more comfort over the next few seasons. If you need a tuneup, don't hesitate to call Air Excellence, Inc. at 804-885-3888 today.
