Preparing Your HVAC System To Go From Heating to Air Conditioning Season

April 26, 2017

Within a few weeks, the temperatures in Harrison, Okeana, Ohio and Lawrenceburg, IN, changes from cold and windy to sunny and warm. This means the heater is getting turned on less and the transition to air conditioning is imminent. This period between winter and summer is a great time to provide some much-needed care for your HVAC system. Here are three steps you can take to make sure it runs well through summer.

Get an HVAC Tune Up

Spring and Fall are the two best times of year to schedule an HVAC tune up. Our trained specialists will run through a performance checklist and clean your units hoses and trays. They will also identify any potential problems that should be fixed before your unit goes into high use.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so make sure you schedule a maintenance check before it gets too hot out.

Change Your Air Filters

We recommend changing your HVAC filters monthly, but many homeowners skip a month or two because they forget. While this is understandable, you don’t want to go more than three months without changing your filter — especially in high-use air conditioning months.

Not only should your change your air filter this month, you should also set reminders in your calendar to change them in future months. You can also buy filters in bulk, so you don’t have to remember to buy new ones.

Test or Upgrade Your Thermostat

Many customers have asked about installing a smart thermostat or upgrading your current one. The best time to do this is in-between the seasons. Even if you’re not changing your thermostat, it’s a good idea to test it for accuracy. If your thermostat is off, then you could end up paying higher electric bills and making your HVAC unit work harder.

If you already have a smart thermostat, make sure you calibrate it for the warmer months in Harrison, Okeana, OH and Lawrenceburg, IN, so it’s able to adapt to your schedule.

Call us at (812) 227-3001 to schedule your air conditioning maintenance tuneup today, if you haven’t had your HVAC system tuned-up for the summer,.
