While April showers bring May flowers, May flowers bring a LOT of unwanted pollen. Regardless of how you feel about spring, the change in season can have a lot of strain on your heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit. Before you jump right into enjoying the season, there are a few things you can do to keep your HVAC unit fully functional in the height of allergy season.
At Air Tech of Conroe, we are your first line of defense against Texas allergens in the spring. There are a lot of different allergens that can pop up, and making sure to invest ample time and energy into maintenance and spring cleaning can help you avoid poor indoor air quality. When you’re wondering what you can do to prepare your HVAC systems for spring, look into cleaning and maintenance.
Clean, Clean, Clean!
One of the most important parts of prepping your HVAC systems for spring is cleaning out any gunk and debris that may have accumulated throughout the winter. When spring hits, pollen and plant matter will be floating through the air at massive rates. This can clog your vents, cause allergies and ultimately decrease your indoor air quality.
When you’re wondering where you should start on your cleaning spree, the best place is your air ducts and filters. They control a lot of your indoor air quality, and making sure to replace your filter can prevent a lot of problems before they get out of control.
Schedule A Seasonal Tune-Up
Tune-ups are an essential part of air conditioning upkeep. During tune-ups that happen at key times of the year, your technician will tell you what to expect out of your unit. This is one of the best ways to ask about the key allergens in your area. It also prepares you for future problems that you may face, and gives you an opportunity to ask about filtration and air purification solutions.
The actual process of a tune-up can be quite complicated. Our technicians will check the wiring, ducts, thermostat and unit efficiency. This can give expert insight into the particular situations that you may face throughout the spring.
Know When To Schedule HVAC Maintenance
When a problem appears, it can be easy to want to brush it off and handle it later. Making sure to schedule maintenance before the problem leads to a costly breakdown is key to maintaining HVAC health. This is a benefit for the lifetime of your unit as well, making sure to extend its longevity.
If you’re noticing issues with your system, there are plenty of ways that you can tell whether they are maintenance worthy or not. Make sure to check for these signs:
- Constantly turning on and off
- Thermostat inaccuracy
- Reduced efficiency
- Bad smells
- Loud noises
- Little air flow
- Significant increases on your energy bills.
By calling as soon as your see those signs, you can prevent worse issues from popping up in the future.
