Bedford, NH Homeowner Seeks Advice
When switching your HVAC system over from heating to air conditioning, it is always a good idea to schedule a tune-up service. A professional HVAC technician can clean the unit, and make sure it is running at maximum efficiency. The change of season is also a good reminder to change the air filters. Dirty air filters mean that your HVAC unit has to work harder to cool and heat the home, which will eventually show in wear and tear on the system.
A homeowner in Bedford was looking forward to the warmer weather. Anxious for the season change, she contacted Joyce Cooling & Heating for advice about how to best handle the changeover from heating to cooling.
Important Steps When Switching Your HVAC Unit to Cooling
Many homeowners opt to cover the outdoor condenser during the winter months. A cover can protect the unit from debris, falling ice and tree limbs. It is imperative that before turning on the air conditioning, the cover be removed. You should also clean any debris that has fallen on or near the condenser. This can affect the efficiency of your home’s air conditioning, causing the system to work harder to cool the home.
Preventative Maintenance on Your HVAC Unit Between Seasons
The change of seasons, switching from heating to air conditioning on your HVAC system, is a great time to schedule a preventative maintenance. A technician can run through a checklist of items, making sure there are not any problems. This process also includes replacing the air filters and cleaning the unit properly. This type of regular maintenance will keep your HVAC unit running smoothly and extends its life.
