Tips for a Fresh and Efficient HVAC System This Spring

Spring is the perfect time to give your HVAC system a thorough cleaning and a little extra love to make sure it runs efficiently and keeps your home comfortable throughout these upcoming warmer months. Here are a few steps for homeowners to conduct some basic spring cleaning for their HVAC systems.

Inspect the Outdoor Unit

Start by checking the outdoor unit of your HVAC system and visually inspecting it. Look for any debris that might have built up around it like leaves, branches, or dirt. Make sure to clear any of this away to ensure proper airflow.

Clean the Outdoor Unit

After giving your outdoor unit a visual check over, give it a good cleaning. Use a garden hose with a nozzle attachment and gently spray down the unit. Be careful not to use too much pressure to avoid potentially damaging any delicate components. Look to remove dirt, dust, and debris from the unit’s coils and if there are any stubborn areas, you can use a soft-bristled brush to gently scrub the debris away.

Trim Vegetation

Look around for any overgrown vegetation or bushes near your outdoor unit. Trim any plants that are getting too close to the unit to maintain proper airflow and prevent any obstructions.

Inspect Indoor Vents

Look at each of the vents inside your home and double check to make sure they are not blocked by any furniture, curtains, or other objects that could potentially restrict airflow. Vacuum any dust or debris that may have accumulated on the vents as well to maintain good indoor air quality.

Change Air Filters

One of the most important steps in good HVAC maintenance is regularly changing the air filters out. Dirty filters can restrict airflow and lessen the efficiency of your system. Find the air filter in your HVAC system, normally found near the return air duct, and replace it with a new one according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. If you have reusable filters, clean them and get them fresh again!

Check Ductwork for Leaks

Look through your ductwork for any visible signs of leaks or damage. Seal any leaks you might find with duct tape to prevent air loss and improve energy efficiency or call our team to take a look at it!

Schedule Professional Maintenance

While these basic cleaning steps can help maintain your HVAC system, it is also important to schedule professional maintenance at least once a year. A licensed HVAC technician can perform a thorough inspection, tune-up, and any necessary repairs to keep your system running smoothly.

By following these spring cleaning tips for your HVAC system, you can make sure it works smoothly, saves energy, and provides the best comfort for your home throughout these warmer months we have coming up!
