Spring HVAC Maintenance Tips

Spring has sprung it and that means it’s time to start getting your home seriously ready for the warmer weather to come. When it comes to your HVAC system, you should always perform maintenance before you actually need to turn the system on, less you eventually try to and realize it won’t run.

These are some of the best spring HVAC maintenance tips for spring that you can do to get your system ready.

Change Your Filter

You should already be doing this once a month, but especially before you turn on your AC, change your HVAC filter. This ensures that there is enough airflow to the unit and your system won’t be clogged with gunk from last season.

Clean the Outside Unit

Especially with all the snow we get in Lancaster, your outdoor AC unit might have taken a beating this winter. Head outside and clear any branches, leaves, or other debris from around the unit. If that mess is left unattended, it can stunt your AC's performance.

Check the Evaporator Coils

Dirty HVAC coils can cause condensation to build up in your unit and potentially even cause the unit to break down. Use a vacuum and special attachment to clean your condenser coils as part of your spring maintenance prep.

Schedule a Tune-Up

While your AC was lying idly during the winter months, there’s no telling if a part became loose or a belt wore down. Schedule a tune-up with your trusted HVAC technician before turning on your system to make sure it’s in top performance shape for when you need it.
