End of Spring: What You Need to Do to Protect Your HVAC System

It seems like spring just started, but soon enough we will already be on our way into summer. Though you have probably been enjoying the moderate spring weather over the past month or so, the temperature will soon start heating up as the hottest months of the year arrive. If you want your air conditioner to take good care of you this summer, it’s important that you take the right steps now to protect your HVAC system and get it ready for the coming months. Below, we will dive into what you need to do to get your HVAC system ready for the summer.

How to Get Your HVAC System Ready for Summer

You may not have used your AC too much this spring, but as summer arrives, there’s a good chance that you will be cranking up the air as the temperatures start to rise. One of the best ways to protect your HVAC system and get it ready for summer is by scheduling a seasonal air conditioner tune-up with a trained and certified HVAC technician.

Just like your vehicle needs routine maintenance to keep it running smoothly and efficiently, so does your HVAC system. Over time, your system starts to accumulate dust, dirt, and other particles. As your equipment gets dirtier, the system has to work harder to keep your home comfortable. This not only causes wear and tear on your HVAC system’s parts, but it also causes your system to run less efficiently. If you do not get your air conditioner and heater cleaned periodically, you run the risk of damaging your HVAC equipment and running up your electricity bill due to energy waste.

What to Expect During a Spring HVAC Tune-Up

During a seasonal tune-up, the HVAC technician will clean your HVAC system, lubricate its parts, and inspect for any malfunctions or repair needs. The technician will inform you if they notice any issues with your system that need to be repaired. Often, technicians will find small repairs during these maintenance visits and fix them on the same day. By catching these issues early on, your HVAC technician helps you avoid more costly repairs.

After your spring tune-up, your air conditioner will be ready to take on the summer heat. Your system will be clean and working properly, helping you maximize efficiency. In the end, this will help you avoid overspending on your monthly electricity costs, even when you are turning down the AC to escape the summer heat.
