With the hot weather of spring and summer right around the corner in Bossier City, LA, there are certain things you’ll want to do now to prepare your HVAC system. To stay cool, you’ll likely have your air conditioning turned on for most of the next few months. If you’re not careful, relying too heavily on your AC unit will be damaging to its health, energy efficiency, and cooling performance. However, there are effective measures you can take to make sure your HVAC system is ready for the upcoming months.
1. Replace Your HVAC Air Filter
If your HVAC air filter is clogged or excessively dirty when the hot weather shows up, your AC unit will have a lot of trouble circulating cool air. It will struggle to pull air through the packed filter, which will increase the odds of a breakdown and force it to use more electricity. Plus, there’s lots of pollen floating around in the spring. Your air filter needs to be functioning well enough to trap that pollen. Otherwise, you’ll end up breathing it all in, which will be miserable if you have allergy symptoms. To avoid these problems, now is the perfect time to replace your filter.
2. Schedule HVAC Maintenance
If you want your HVAC system to be circulating air smoothly and efficiently all summer, a springtime tune-up is a wise idea. You can hire one of our technicians at Central Aire Heating & A/C, Inc. for the job, and they’ll give your HVAC unit a thorough cleaning and inspection. They’ll ensure that there aren’t any mechanical issues on the horizon, and they’ll leave your HVAC unit operating in tip-top shape.
3. Clean Your Vents
With all the pollen, dust, pet dander, dirt, and random debris floating around, it’s easy for your air vents to become packed with contaminant particles. If left unchecked, that will hamper your HVAC system’s ability to circulate air, which is the last thing you want when the Louisiana summer arrives. To remedy this, you can simply remove each vent’s cover with a screwdriver and vacuum out the interior.
