4 Tips for Early Spring HVAC Maintenance

The snow has melted and it’s already April, and that means it’s time to prepare for the cooling season! Is your air conditioner ready for the shift? Use these early spring HVAC maintenance tips to help prepare your system before the hot, humid days arrive.

Test Your Cooling System & Schedule Annual Maintenance

When that first heat wave arrives, the last thing you want is a malfunctioning A/C. Test the system now and schedule annual preventative maintenance to ensure peak performance, efficiency, and safety. Your professional HVAC technician will provide a detailed inspection, cleaning, testing, and maintenance of your system. They can also diagnose and repair any issues now to prevent bigger and more costly problems later on.

Schedule Professional Duct Cleaning

Dust, pet dander, and other debris naturally accumulate inside your ductwork over time and reduce efficiency. Additionally, as air flows between your A/C unit and home, that debris can get blown into the air you breathe and decrease indoor air quality. Schedule a professional duct cleaning service, to help extend your system’s lifespan, boost efficiency, and provide clean air.

You should also clean or replace the air filter and remember to do so monthly (or as directed by manufacturer instructions). A clogged filter is the top cause of HVAC system failure, so keeping it clean helps ensure efficient and effective performance.

Provide Optimal Ventilation

While you want to keep the cool air inside, proper ventilation and fresh air are crucial to maintaining indoor air quality. Check for cracks and other leaks around your home’s exterior walls, especially near windows and doors, and seal them with caulk. On nice days, open up windows to let in fresh air. Consider installing an air exchanger that manages humidity and removes old, stale indoor air while simultaneously providing fresh, filtered outdoor air.

Know When It’s Time to Replace

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the typical lifespan of a central air conditioner is about 15 to 20 years. If your system is 15 years or older, it may be time to consider a replacement. Additional signs it’s time for an upgrade include:

  • Frequent issues and repairs
  • Inefficient or uneven cooling
  • Frequent cycling
  • Increased indoor humidity and dust accumulation
  • Unexplained increases in energy bills

If you notice any of these issues with your air conditioner, contact Stafford Home Service Inc. to discuss an upgrade. Today’s A/C systems offer higher efficiency, quieter operation, and reduced negative impacts on the environment. Our experts will help find the ideal option for your home and budget.
