End of Winter HVAC Maintenance Checklist
If you’re looking forward to the warmer weather that spring brings, you aren’t alone. This is one of the most beautiful times of the year, and you are sure to enjoy lower energy bills for a while. However, in order to keep your HVAC in the shape to provide optimal year-round performance, you will need to do some end of winter maintenance. Fully understanding the tasks that must be completed can help you keep your unit in tip-top condition.
Change the Filters
Preparing for a new season of the year is an ideal time to change the air filter. This inexpensive item can render you significant savings on your electric bill. When the filter becomes overly dirty or clogged, it won’t allow your HVAC unit to operate as efficiently as it should.
It’s highly recommended by HVAC experts to put in a new air filter at least once every three months.
Check the Condensation Bin
One HVAC maintenance task you will want to accomplish at the end of winter is checking the condensation bin. This item is located in the outside unit, and it’s on the underneath portion of your HVAC system. It’s important to see if there is enough moisture in the bin, but not too much. If there is an overflow of water, you may need to have an HVAC professional examine the cause of this for you.
