Spring Cleaning And Maintenance On Your HVAC Equipment

Spring has officially started, and with it comes nice, warm weather! The spring season is one of the best times of the year to do maintenance on your home and home systems. And with hot summer months just around the corner, it makes sense to clean and perform maintenance on your air conditioning system.

At ServiceOne, we provide a number of quality services, including HVAC, to help ensure your home is keeping you comfortable all year round. Below, we provide some ideas for what to add to your spring HVAC cleaning checklist!

Replace your HVAC filter

One of the first things that you should put on your HVAC cleaning checklist is to replace your HVAC filter. Although this should be done every two to three months, it is something that homeowners often forget about. That is why it’s a great idea to do so in the spring with your other maintenance and cleaning tasks. A clean air filter can reduce energy costs, as well as improve the air quality in your home! 

Clean around your compressor

Another thing homeowners can do to prepare their HVAC systems for the summer heat is by cleaning around their air compressor. Air compressors are found outside of homes and are what allow cool air to enter your home. During the fall and winter months, leaves, sticks, dirt and other debris oftentimes accumulate around your compressor. All homeowners should clean up the area that surrounds their compressor to prevent any outside debris from getting into your home’s air. 

Clean your air ducts

To provide your home with the highest quality of air, it’s a smart idea to hire a professional to come and clean your home’s air ducts. Over time, dust and other particles will accumulate, especially during the winter. Having this done before you turn your air conditioner on for summer will help reduce the amount of allergens in your home’s air, and ultimately create more clean and healthy air in your home. 

Schedule an HVAC inspection

Lastly, the spring is the perfect time to schedule an HVAC inspection. This is by far the best way to ensure your air conditioner will be reliable all summer long. At ServiceOne, our team of trained and licensed HVAC technicians perform thorough and proper inspections, maintenance and repairs on all name-brand HVAC equipment.

While there are some HVAC maintenance tasks that can easily be performed by yourself, such as replacing your air filter, there are certain things that should be performed by a professional to ensure it is getting done right.
