We all know that spring cleaning is the perfect time to get our homes in order before the summer. Don’t forget about your AC system! In the same way that you would clean behind the couch, dust off the windowsills, and vacuum the rugs, your AC system needs a little love too. So, let’s tackle this checklist together and get your home ready for summertime fun!
Check Your Filters
Ah, the joys of spring cleaning. Let’s start this checklist off with one of the most important tasks. Changing your air filters. Did you know that your air filters hold the key to your health, wallet, and air system efficiency? Yep, it’s true! So, crack open your calendar and pencil in a date every 2-3 months to spare yourself some sniffles, hefty energy bills, and an air system on the fritz.
Check for Leaks & Blockages
If there are any blockages within the ductwork or if there are any leaks (which can be caused by holes in the outer casing), it will compromise the efficiency of your system. Call Roy’s and we’ll check for these issues by taking off the covers of outdoor AC units to do a full inspection of all exposed areas.
Check Your Thermostat Settings
If you’re still using a traditional, manual thermostat, consider upgrading to a programmable model or one with Wi-Fi connectivity. This will give you full control over your heating and cooling systems from the convenience of your mobile device or by allowing you to save energy based on your specific schedule and needs. With the right thermostat, you can enjoy year-round comfort while simultaneously achieving maximum energy efficiency — all with minimal effort!
Clean Vents & Registers
You may think dusting off vents and registers are just for looks but they are important for keeping your system running smoothly by allowing maximum airflow throughout the system. Plus, when you remove all the dust from around these areas it helps reduce allergens inside your home which is always necessary!
Schedule Professional HVAC Service in Buffalo
Even after following all these steps yourself, it’s still important that you schedule professional service for your AC & Heating system at least twice a year —in order to ensure that everything is running smoothly all year long! Call Roy’s Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling for an annual checkup, tune-up, and upgrades.
