The unseasonably warm weather in February has left us all with spring fever. Even though the calendar says that there are still a few weeks to go, it isn’t too early to get your heating and cooling system ready for the springtime.
The right time for scheduling an air conditioning tune-up
At Joyce Cooling & Heating, we have already begun to get calls from customers anxious to turn on their home’s cooling system. A customer in Hollis, NH did just that, and found that his air conditioning unit was blowing hot air. With a service call, we were quickly able to determine the problem and this customer is ready for the warm weather.
Now is actually a great time to be sure that everything with your air conditioning unit is working optimally. Scheduling a springtime tune-up can do just that, and have you ready to go when the temperatures soar.
Springtime is a good reminder to replace filters
In most cases, your home’s air filter should be replaced monthly, but it is often one of those overlooked items. By changing your air filters regularly you can prevent damage to your system, and save money through reduced energy costs. The change in season is a good reminder to do just that.
Don’t forget to clear the outdoor units
Over the winter months debris, from leaves and branches to grass and dirt, can accumulate around your air conditioning unit or heat pump. This can restrict the airflow to your home, affecting the system’s overall efficiency. Taking the time now to clear the area can ensure that your system is ready to go during the summer months, running in top form.
These extra steps can ensure that your home’s heating and cooling system run smoothly all spring and summer, keeping your home at a comfortable temperature and saving you money through improved efficiency.
