OK, it’s spring season! Yea !!! Turn off the furnace and switch on the a/c! This is a good time to call for service, and repair both your heating system and your air conditioning.
Your system must be checked in the fall and in the spring season. Following is what you ought to be looking at.
In the springtime, tidy your condenser unit, (the outside part) prior to switch on the AC. Wash the grime and leaves and garbage and mud out of the system so you obtain great air flow. This also gets rid of material that may harm your system. Mindful, in cleaning, that you do not ruin delicate parts. The fins and tubing inside the condensers are pretty delicate and won’t take a great deal of pressure.
Check your in-line air filter. Filters are fairly low-cost and replacing them is easy, so the old statement, “when in doubt, toss it out” works. Note the day that you changed the filter on the filter edge, so you will keep in mind when you last changed it.
Get your system checked yearly. This appliance has heavy usage, it has to be looked at by a qualified specialist. It’s much better to get your system maintained than to dismiss it and have it break down when you need it. Often, if the technician has to get components, it can take a little bit to have a system fixed. You don’t prefer to be burning furnishings in your fireplace while you stand by for the furnace tech to get you !
If your heater or cooling needs to be switched out, spring season is a convenient time to do it. It takes a bit to switch out a heater or cooling and the time to do that is when it’s neither too warm or too cold, when you do not really need it.
