5 Spring Maintenance Tips for your HVAC System


Spring is just around the corner! Is your heating and cooling system ready for this major seasonal transformation? Check out these crucial maintenance tasks that you should do before the heat wave!

Change the Furnace Filter

Changing furnace filters is an easy task which you can do yourself. A clean filter makes the operation of your unit smooth and steady, thus reducing your energy usage by up to 15%. It also has a great impact on the overall status of your health. If you have a temporary filter, be sure to replace it regularly. For permanent types, take time to rinse it off monthly.

Clean the Drainage Hole

The drainage hole is commonly associated with your air conditioning unit. To keep the proper operation of your A/C, you need to make sure that the drainage hole is clear of any debris. If you find it difficult to clean the hole due to its small size, a paper clip or small piece of wire will help you get things done.

Remove Obstacles around your Outer Unit

The outer unit of your air conditioner is as important as the interior parts. Before you fire up the A/C for the first time, be sure to remove loose vegetation or debris around the unit. These can obstruct the airflow and bring additional strain to your system. By clearing the area, the A/C can freely pull the air it needs for proper operation.

Add a Smart Thermostat

If you have not shifted to a smart thermostat yet, now is the time to do it. Smart thermostats have a lot to offer in energy-saving, style, and accessibility. It allows you to program the temperature setting and manipulate your indoor temperature anywhere, anytime. It also sends helpful recommendations on how you can save more energy in cooling your home.

Schedule a Tune-up

After completing the tasks above, it is time to bring in the experts for a thorough inspection of your units. A professional check can identify problems in your system and provide immediate repair. As your local HVAC technicians do a detailed check on the components, you can also take the opportunity to ask questions about your system and how you can save on your cooling bill next season.

These tips can go a long way in giving your home enough comfort this spring. If you are in Tyler or the East Texas area and need professional help in keeping your HVAC system in tip-top shape, feel free to talk to our experts at Maddox Residential and Commercial Services. Call us!
