Spring is around the corner and it’s time to get your Wilmington, NC home ready for the new season. With spring comes beautiful flowers, warmer weather, and pollen. These five maintenance tasks can help keep your family healthy, your air conditioner working, and your home comfortable all season long.
Change Your Air Filters
Air conditioning maintenance is vital to prevent your system from breaking down at the worst moment. It might sound simple, but changing your air filters approximately every 60 days can help keep your system working in top-notch condition. That’s because a clogged filter causes your air conditioner to work harder to push air through your home, which can lead to problems in the future.
Check Your Fan’s Direction
Changing the direction of your fans to counterclockwise during the summer is a great way to keep your home cool and comfortable. When your fan rotates counterclockwise, it creates a wind-chill effect by blowing air straight down.
Declutter and Deep Clean
Clutter tends to build up throughout the year, which creates hidden homes for dust, pollen, and other allergens floating around your home. As a result, this dust buildup can decrease your energy efficiency and cause allergy symptoms. Spring is a great time to clean out the clutter and deep clean every corner of your home to improve your indoor air quality.
Check Window Seals
Window seals and stripping help reduce any air leakage. It’s important to ensure your windows aren’t letting air out. This can cause your system to overwork itself quickly, especially during the warmer season when your air conditioner is already working hard to cool your home.
Schedule HVAC Maintenance
Whether your system is already showing signs of wear and tear or not, scheduling air conditioning maintenance before the truly hot weather starts will guarantee efficient home cooling when you need it most. Prevent larger repair jobs or complete replacements by calling a trusted air conditioning company to maintain your unit.
