Summer will soon be on us before we know it, and to make this season bearable, HVAC comes to the rescue. With relentless sunshine in Texas, the scorched earth will send us running into our little HVAC safe-havens. However, if we take HVAC out of the equation, our houses will turn into saunas in no time. In a nutshell, everyone in Texas knows the importance of HVAC, which makes HVAC summer preparation more critical. Here is what you need to look out for and get your system up to the mark during the summer season.
Summer Calls For HVAC Cleaning:
What harm can a few extra layers of dirt, grime, or pet dander do? Well, nothing much; they can clog filters and vents restraining the airflow. That is the start of toppling dominos. Airflow restriction leads to dwindling cooling. Thus, to keep up with your temperature settings, the HVAC system puts in the extra effort resulting in high utility bills or machine breakdown. Therefore, to avoid such unruly breakdowns, follow the drill.
These are the first line of defense, filtering dust and dirt from the air. Consequently, it’s a no-brainer that you will eventually end up with a clogged filter. You will either need to wash your filter or replace them when the times come. The replacement might be due after a year or a month. It all depends on the type of A/C unit and filter. Nonetheless, it’s better to check up on filters before the summer session for smooth operation.
Vents are next in the inspection. If you see a considerable layer of grime, you may want to clean the air vents and the HVAC duct.
Many homeowners cover the outdoor unit to protect it against harsh winter weather. However, the spring season is the time to unveil it for a good look. You will need to brush off any debris or dirt in the outdoor unit.
Inspect The Thermostat:
The thermostat is out of operation for some time, so you may need to rev it up before summer. The thermostat might require recalibration, or you may need to reprogram it if you have a programmable thermostat. On the other hand, if you have some bucks to spare, why not upgrade the thermostat to a new energy-star smart thermostat?
Schedule The Regular Maintenance:
Spring is a great time to call in experts for your yearly HVAC maintenance. Faults that may elude your inspection cannot escape the eyes of experts. They will inspect and tune the internal machinery for the upcoming summer session.
