Spring Checklist For Your HVAC System

Every spring, before the heat of the summer begins to push your air conditioner to its limits, an AC system checklist will get you moving in the right direction.

Change Your Air Filters

Changing your air filters regularly is essential for the health of your AC system, but it will also help remove dust, pollen, and other irritants from the air you breathe. Dirty air filters restrict air flow, which puts additional stress on your AC system as it tries to keep up with our Dallas, Texas, heat.

Clean Your Air Vents

Clean Your Air Vents

All the air in your home flows through your air vents, and the returns (also known as cold air returns) collect all sorts of debris like pet hair, dust, dander, mold, and other undesirable residue. Removing your vent covers and washing them with warm, soapy water before reinstalling them every spring would be beneficial.

Consider Installing An Air Purifier

Whole house air purifiers filter and purify your home’s air from irritants like dust mites, pollen, dander, mold, microplastics, smoke, and more. Combining a high-grade air filter and purifying UV Light efficiently destroys impurities in your air.

Clear The Area Around Your Outdoor Air Conditioner

Any debris or shrub growth that restricts airflow around your outdoor condenser will limit its efficiency and comfort level in your home. A good rule of thumb is to keep a two to three-foot zone free of debris around your outside air conditioner to improve its effectiveness.

Upgrade To A Smart Thermostat

A smart thermostat is more than just a fancy temperature control for your air conditioning and heating system, it is also equipped with Wi-Fi, movement sensors, advanced algorithms and many more features that will help your home to run efficiently.

A 7-day programmable thermostat can help reduce energy costs if it is adequately programmed by adjusting temperature settings based on daily schedules; however, a smart thermostat can learn a household’s occupancy patterns and automatically change the temperature based on the daily traffic flowing through your home.

Schedule Your Semi-Annual Check-Up

It is much cheaper to pay for a semi-annual check-up, which will help detect minor AC system issues before they become significant problems on a Saturday afternoon when it is 95 degrees in Dallas. In addition, your Heating and Air Conditioning system can lose 5% of its efficiency yearly if it misses a check-up.
