Don’t Let Your HVAC System Break this Summer!
We all know that April showers bring May flowers. But it’s the lack of May-ntenance on your HVAC system that will leave you sweating in the summer sizzle.
Ok, that might be a little cheesy, but the truth is that many of you will not have your HVAC system maintained this spring. The result of this is that many of you will turn on your HVAC when the temperatures start getting warm and all you will get is hot air!
We know this because it happens every year. And guess what? Because it happens to everyone at the same time, people have to suffer through a couple hot days of summer while we get it fixed or bring in the parts to fix it.
Additionally, we can often prevent an HVAC system from breaking in the first place, saving you money and keeping you comfortable when you need it most.
So how should you proceed from here?
Well, the first step is to turn on your air conditioner to see if it is working right now. At this point in the year, you might have not turned it on in a while during the cooler months. Turn it on and leave it on for 30 minutes to make sure it is working properly and cooling the house the way you want. If it doesn’t work, give us a call and we will come check it out.
In addition to turning it on to check to see if it works, you should change the air filter. A dirty air filter can cause all kinds of problems with the HVAC system and is often the root of many HVAC systems breaking. Ideally, if you have a standard air filter system it should be changed out every 30-60 days. However, making sure you have a clean one in there before the temperatures start to rise will help it run more efficiently.
We encourage you to have an HVAC specialist out to maintain your HVAC system. We can help make sure it’s running properly and will keep running through the summer. We can also spot potential problems that might arise. It’s better to catch those early so we can get the replacement parts in before it actually breaks.
While there is no guarantee that your HVAC system won’t break, following these steps will significantly reduce the chance of your HVAC system failing when you need it most. This will keep you and your family happy and cool during the hot summer months.
