How to Get Your HVAC System Ready for Spring
Spring is right around the corner in Palm Beach, Florida, which means it’s time to make sure your HVAC system can handle the heat. From outdoor landscaping to indoor maintenance, find out how to get your HVAC system ready for spring.
Trim Back the Landscaping
Start your seasonal transition outside with an inspection of your air conditioner’s exterior unit. Remove any leaves or branches that have accumulated on the unit, and trim back any shrubs, trees, or tall grass. Throughout the growing season, make sure that nothing grows within about three feet of the unit. Most systems need this level of clearance so they can exhaust hot air or draw in fresh air as necessary.
Change the Air Filter
Inside, change your air conditioner’s air filter and mark the date on the calendar. Now that you’ll be running your cooling system regularly, you’ll want to change the air filter every month. Doing this helps the system run as efficiently as possible while trapping all the pet dander, dust mites, and pollen that circulates through your home’s air supply.
Call for Preventive Maintenance
At Preferred Air Conditioning, we recommend getting preventive maintenance at least once a year for each major component of your HVAC system. Spring is the ideal time for our team to check your air conditioner to ensure that it runs smoothly and efficiently and that it isn’t on the brink of a major breakdown. Schedule your session now to get your system tuned up before Palm Beach really heats up.
