Spring Checklist For Your HVAC System
1. Check Electrical Connections
Also, a faulty electric connection can reduce the lifespan of your system, which will cost you more money in the long-run. Make sure your electrical connection is safe and adequately connected before firing it up again for those summer days that are just around the corner.
2. Check the Refrigerant Levels in Your Air Conditioner
3. Change Air Filters
4. Clean Your Outdoor Unit
So, take advantage of the more-hospitable spring weather and clean your outdoor unit with a garden hose (be sure to turn the unit’s power off first), or use whatever buckets or barrels you have on hand to gently wash away any contaminants; be sure not to use a pressure washer, which is too strong and can damage your coil. By taking care of your HVAC system in spring, you’ll ensure that it can return the favor for you and your family all summer.
5. Clean and Lubricate Your Indoor Unit
Don’t have time to properly do the job yourself — or you just need a little help? You might want to schedule a service visit by a qualified HVAC technician at Rush Services to make sure your system is up to snuff. Our experienced professional technicians are experts at detecting the tell-tale early warning signs that can save you money.
