While there are still a few cold days ahead of us, the truth of the matter is that the weather is starting to get warmer. This means that we’ll be transitioning from needing heating in our buildings to needing air conditioning instead. The only problem is that your HVAC system may need to be fixed up before the spring season. Here is how you can get your HVAC system ready for spring.
Try Out Your HVAC System Before Spring Starts
Before anything else, you want to know whether or not your HVAC system is functional. The best way to find out this information is by giving it a test run. Try turning it on when the weather is warmer outside because you don’t want to turn your building into an igloo during testing.
Keep track of any abnormalities you notice. Are there any unusual noises? Does it stop mid-cycle? Do you notice any strange smells? Is the air inside actually cooler when you turn your HVAC system on?
Knowing if something is wrong with your HVAC system ahead of time is ideal. This way, you can make the necessary adjustments before the spring season arrives.
Plan Pre-Spring Maintenance & Cleaning For Your HVAC System
Maintenance and cleaning for your HVAC system should be done both for safety purposes and to make your unit more energy-efficient while it’s in use. That’s why you should plan semi-annual cleanings and inspections. These inspections should happen right before winter and right before spring. As we mentioned earlier, note any unusual activity from your system. This way, you can inform your technician of everything wrong, allowing them to more easily determine how to fix your unit.
Seal Up your Cracks and Leaks, and Think About Installing More Insulation
Sometimes, winter weather can get pretty intense. In some instances, the weather can pry things loose and cause debris to get thrown into your HVAC system. If this happens, you’ll need to patch up any damage your unit has sustained. It’s a good idea to seal all of your cracks and leaks before spring so that you can get as much air retention as possible before the weather heats up.
In addition, adding insulation can go a long way. You cut down on utility costs every month, and your system will be more energy-efficient.
