Spring is here again, and that means that many people throughout the Southern New Jersey area will be cranking up those air conditioners soon! You want to ensure that your system is up and running all season long with no surprise breakdowns, while operating at its highest efficiency. Before we reach higher temperatures, it’s important to ensure that your HVAC system will be able to properly serve you and your home throughout the warmer seasons ahead. Here are some tips to take into consideration when you’re giving your HVAC system a well needed cleaning and getting it prepared for the spring and summer months ahead:
- Clean clutter around your home. If there’s too much clutter around your house, dust can accumulate which can aggravate allergies and lower indoor air quality. Having more things lying around your house means having more places for unwanted dust and debris to collect.
- Stay cool and stay green. You can install a programmable thermostat in your home to save money on energy costs. This is one of the most cost effective ways you can save money on your air conditioning this season. Programmable thermostats automatically adjust the temperature in your home to your presets, increasing your home’s efficiency and saving you money!
- Check your refrigerant levels. If you have a central air conditioner, there is typically a visible gauge that can quickly let you know the refrigerant levels in your system. You want to make sure that your system always has the proper amount in it because too much or too little refrigerant will cut into your system efficiency, increase energy costs, and overall shorten its lifespan.
