Well, Spring is finally here, which means it is time for homeowners to have their HVAC system serviced in anticipation of the upcoming long hot summer months. Surely summer will be here before you know it, which is why the professionals here at Hometown Comfort want to remind you to schedule your HVAC inspection and maintenance now.
When you choose to have your system inspected, cleaned and serviced in the early spring, our technicians have ample time to identify any problems and provide effective solutions before they have a chance to escalate into much bigger and more costly problems in the months ahead. The highly skilled technicians here at Hometown Comfort have a few pointers to offer you in preparation of the summer months ahead and prior to scheduling your system cleaning and servicing.
Start by turning on your AC system in early spring to determine if there are any obvious problems that need attention and repair. Change the filters in your HVAC system before you begin continuous use of your air conditioning system. We cannot emphasize enough the overall importance of clean filters which contribute to the proper functionality of your system as well as the overall comfort and health of your home and family. As a rule of thumb, you should change your filters at least every three months and, when possible, even more often.
Next, we strongly recommend that you give focus to your outdoor unit. Be sure to keep the landscaping around the compressor groomed by clearing away any fallen branches, leaves, grass, and any other debris. You should also take an outdoor hose and give a quick rinse away of any debris that may have found its way to your condenser coils. Properly cleaned and maintained condenser coils are primary to an efficiently running AC system. Once you have been able to complete these simple tasks, then it’s time to schedule your HVAC system inspection and seasonal service with our qualified team.
Most homeowners understand the importance of routine yearly HVAC maintenance and inspections. Performing each in the spring ensures that your system is performing at peak levels and capable of handling the scorching summer temperatures ahead. At your yearly service appointment, our qualified technicians will clean all the components of your HVAC system including your evaporator coils. Next, they will check the refrigerant levels and test all the electrical components as well. If any problems are identified during this spring inspection, we will provide you with all your service options and deliver effective and efficient solutions to any and all problems well in advance of the summer months.
In addition, to your yearly service and maintenance, our experts also recommend you have a duct inspection and cleaning as well. A full inspection and cleaning of your duct system every 3-4 years will ensure there are no leaks in your system and should any exist, ensure timely repair of such leaks to allow for full functionality of your AC system.
