Springtime HVAC Preparation

March 19, 2019 | Blog

Springtime HVAC PreparationOnce the calendar hits March, it’s time for Coastal Bend homeowners to start with their spring HVAC maintenance. It won’t be long before the weather heats up enough to turn on the air conditioner and when you do, a fully maintained system will run more efficiently and dependably.

What You Can Do

  • Replace the air filter for the air handler if it’s covered with dust and remember to check it monthly during the cooling season. Nothing drives up energy bills faster and contributes to premature breakdowns than a dirty filter.
  • Clean the outdoor condenser. Remove any dead vegetation within a three-foot boundary to promote better airflow into the condenser. Look over the coils and hose them off if they’re dusty. You may need commercial coil cleaner available at home improvement centers if you have dried-on grass clippings coating the coils.
  • Inspect the register covers throughout your home and make a note of any that seem exceptionally dusty or see dust deposits nearby. The excess dust could indicate a ductwork leak. Using your HVAC system with leaking ducts increases your energy bills and lowers the indoor air quality. When you find evidence of ductwork problems, contact your HVAC contractor.

What the HVAC Pro Does

Spring HVAC maintenance includes a full inspection of your equipment like:

  • A thorough cleaning of all the parts. Forced-air HVAC systems pull a lot of air through them and dust can build on all their parts. Removing the dust increases its efficiency and longevity.
  • Adjusting the parts. Air conditioners create vibrations as they run and over the course of a summer, parts may get out of alignment.
  • Measuring the refrigerant. The HVAC technician will check the refrigerant level. When they run without enough in the system, they lose efficiency. Worse, the evaporator coil can freeze over, which can stress the compressor, the system’s most expensive part.

If you want to get a leg up on preparing for summer, schedule spring HVAC maintenance early. For more information, contact CCAC, providing HVAC services for Coastal Bend homeowners.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
