The checklist you need to get your HVAC system ready for summer.
The best way to make sure that your AC is ready to keep you cool as soon as weather heats up is to plan for it in advance. You can use this checklist to get your HVAC system ready for summer, work effectively and maximize energy efficiency:
- Schedule an annual tune-up
Doing this every spring will prevent any potentially costly breakdowns before they happen and ensure that your HVAC system runs at peak efficiency all summer.
- Install a programmable thermostat
You can have your local HVAC technician do this for you. A programmable thermostat will help you manage your energy costs much more easily by programming when you want the system to turn on
and off throughout the day or night according to your schedule. It can also help save you up to 10% on energy costs.
- Clean your HVAC system
Remove any debris, dirt, leaves or grime that has built up on or around the outside unit of your HVAC system. Do not attempt to take the cover off and clean the interior. Leave that to the technician who
will clean all required components as part of your annual HVAC tune-up.
- Replace HVAC filters
This can be easily done but if you need help, don’t hesitate to call your local HVAC service or repair company. By doing this you will help make the HVAC system run more effectively and improve the
air quality in and around your home.
- Remove any HVAC covering
Make sure to do this a few weeks before you think you might need it to let air flow in and around your system.
