Spring is finally here, which means the weather is starting to get warmer! While that doesn’t mean it’s time to crank up your air conditioning full blast just yet, it does mean that you should take some time to make sure your unit is in good working condition and is prepared for the warmer weather ahead. A properly maintained HVAC system is one that’s going to last for a long time, so make sure you’re prepping your unit for the upcoming seasons.
Spring is the time of year when you don’t necessarily need to use your air conditioning or heating, which makes it the perfect time to do a little maintenance to make sure it’s running properly. Here at Clay’s Climate Control, one of our professional HVAC technicians will inspect and clean the wiring of your unit and much more. We’ve outlined a full spring HVAC checklist for homeowners in our area of New Jersey:
- Check the functionality of all HVAC units. Test out all of your HVAC system’s units by turning them on to make sure they’re working properly. If your system isn’t cooling your home to the temperature you set, then this could be an issue with your thermostat or your HVAC system in general. If you need help, you can always give us a call!
- Remove any debris surrounding the unit. Your HVAC technician will inspect your outdoor unit, removing any debris such as pollen, twigs, and leaves. Too much debris surrounding the unit could prevent your system from operating properly, so it’s important to keep it clean for maximum efficiency. One of our technicians will also confirm that the outdoor unit starts, runs and shuts off correctly.
- Replace your air filters. When your air filters are dirty, it slows down the process of cooling your home and can also negatively affect your home’s indoor air quality. You should typically change your air filters once a month if they look dirty or brown.
- Make an appointment with Clay’s Climate Control! We will work to tighten your electrical wiring, replace your filters, and check safety controls. We will also check your refrigerant levels to make sure that your HVAC system can properly cool your home.
