Spring Cleaning Tips
With spring right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning. And we’re not just talking about the closets and kitchen; your HVAC system needs some attention, too. To prep, your HVAC system for the months of warm weather ahead, here are some spring cleaning tips. For additional help, reach out to one of our professionals at Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning directly today.
Clean Your Vents and Ducts
Cleaning the vents and ducts serves two purposes: first, by removing dust and debris, you’ll make sure that the air that’s blowing into your home is cleaner and easier to breathe; second, cleaning out your vents and ducts can improve the efficiency of your system. Cleaning your vents is pretty straightforward, and is best done with a high-powered vacuum that can suck up all of the dirt and dust that’s collected over the winter. Cleaning your ducts can be a bit more challenging and is something you should call a professional for.
Clean Your Unit
If you have an outdoor condenser unit, chances are that leaves, sticks, dirt, and debris have all become lodged within it over the winter. When the summer heats up, and you need cool air, this could restrict the system’s performance. Fortunately, this is an easy fix. Trim any vegetation that’s encroaching upon your unit, remove any visible debris, like leaves or branches, and then gently vacuum the fins.
Replace Your Filters
Replacing your HVAC filter is something that you should do a few times a year and more often if you have pets. Replacing your filters on a regular basis is one of the easiest things that you can do to breathe easier and keep your HVAC system running smoothly.
Call a Professional
If it’s been a while since you’ve had your HVAC system professionally serviced, it might be worth your time to call a professional for some extra attention. A professional can perform a more thorough inspection of your HVAC system and make sure that everything is in tip-top shape for summer.
