Warm weather hits, and everyone feels the urge to do some spring cleaning. That is always a good thing. Months of being indoors and the house shut up leads to dust and dirt. Airing out your home is an excellent idea. Your HVAC system also needs spring cleaning to get ready for warmer weather. At Cascade Energy Services, we provide spring air conditioning tune-up and preventative maintenance in Edmonds that helps get your HVAC up and running.
Spring Maintenance for Your HVAC System
When you give your HVAC system a little TLC, it can help it run more efficiently and extend its life. A system operating the way it should also save you money on energy bills and prevent costly repairs. Here are some things you can do to get your air conditioning system ready for the hotter days ahead:
- Check the Ductwork – Check the ductwork for leaky joints or holes and look for cracks. If any of these present themselves, have it repaired right away. We can also do this for you as part of a maintenance check.
- Change the Air Filter – Changing the filter is easy and makes such a difference in air quality and your health. Clean air filters also lower energy usage.
- Check the Drainage Hole – At the air conditioner’s cabinet base, there is a drainage hole. Make sure this is clear to allow for proper drainage.
- Clean Around the Unit – Check around the outdoor unit regularly to ensure no debris or plant life has accumulated. If your air conditioner can’t pull in the right amount of air, it can damage the unit.
