Spring is a great time to conduct preventive maintenance to help you reduce energy costs and avoid emergency calls during the warmer months. Here are the main HVAC maintenance tasks you shouldn’t skip:
Clean Floor Registers. Dust, pet dander, and other debris can collect in your floor registers. They can be cleaned using a vacuum, but during spring upkeep, you will want to do this thoroughly. To do so, remove the vents and wash them with soapy water. Use a sponge to clean off the dirt and dry the vent before reinstalling it.
Clean Air Vents. Just like your floor registers, your air vents are prone to dirt buildup. You can clean them by using a rag wrapped over a butter knife to wipe in between the tight areas. If there is loose debris, remove it with your vacuum.
Change Air Filters. To keep your home’s comfort and efficiency at optimum levels, it’s vital to replace your air filters every three months. Dirty and clogged filters can damage your HVAC system and increase your energy bills.
Remove Yard Waste. Twigs, leaves, and other garden refuse can infiltrate your exterior condenser unit, which can inhibit airflow. Have a Green Apple Mechanical expert remove debris if there is any, and trim the vegetation growing near the unit to avoid airflow issues.
These simple steps can go a long way in extending the service life of your HVAC system. For the best results, schedule a professional Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical NJ maintenance visit as well. Your technician will be able to provide the necessary tune-ups that will prevent costly problems.
