Tips for Preparing your HVAC for Summer


With the weather warming up in the Twin cities, homeowners should start getting their HVAC systems ready for the cooling season. Continue reading our blog to learn about helpful tips for preparing your HVAC system for the summer.

Change Your Air Filters

One of the easiest and most important things you can do to prepare your HVAC system for summer is to change your air filters. Over time, your air filters become clogged with dust, dirt, and other nasty debris, which can cause your system to work harder and less efficiently. By replacing your air filters before the summer season begins, you can help ensure that your system is running smoothly and that the air in your home is clean and fresh. And be sure to follow manufacturer recommendations for cleaning or changing the filters throughout the summer.

Schedule a Maintenance Check

Another crucial step in preparing your HVAC system for summer is scheduling a professional maintenance check. A qualified HVAC technician can inspect your system, clean and lubricate its components, and make any necessary repairs or adjustments to ensure that it runs at peak efficiency. This will help prevent breakdowns and extend your HVAC’s lifespan.

Clean Your Outdoor Unit

Your HVAC system’s outdoor unit can become clogged with debris, which reduces its efficiency and forces it to work harder than necessary. Before the summer season begins, take some time to clean the area around your outdoor unit. Remove any leaves, twigs, and other debris that may have accumulated over the winter months. You can also use a garden hose to gently rinse off the unit itself.

Seal Air Leaks

Finally, take some time to inspect your home for any air leaks around windows, doors, and other openings. By sealing these leaks with caulk or weatherstripping, you can prevent hot air from entering and cool air escaping your home and causing your HVAC system to work harder than it needs to. This is a sure way to reduce your energy bills and improve the comfort of your home.
