Preparing Your HVAC System for Spring
As winter winds down, we begin to prepare for warmer spring days. When you make your business’ spring cleaning list, be sure to consider your HVAC system. Yes, after a long, hard winter, this important cooling component needs some servicing. Unsure where to get started? The heating and cooling experts of Automated Control Systems have a comprehensive list of the steps you need to take in an effort to have your HVAC system humming along throughout spring and summer.
Unbeknownst to many, the air filter will only work as well as you care for it. Like any piece of equipment, the HVAC air filter requires regular maintenance and, sometimes, replacement. As a rule of thumb, these components should be replaced every three months. However, the air filter should be checked for debris and dust buildup every month when this system is in regular use. Failure to do so can result in nasal passage irritation and subpar indoor air quality.
Insulation & Sealing
When it comes to HVAC maintenance, surveying your system’s ductwork is crucial. Why is this so important? Well, the smallest of leaks can have a big effect on your energy use. To put things in perspective, consider that, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), leaks in ductwork can result in a 25% decrease in energy efficiency. Because of this, employing the right sealing and insulation measures is an absolute must.
Like a fine-tuned automobile, your HVAC system — especially dated ones — requires regular maintenance. So, before your HVAC system is in full-fledged cooling mode, be sure to have a skilled service technician inspect it for efficiency and any repairs that need to be made. Have an older system? It may be time to make the switch to a newer, automated one. Generally speaking, newer HVAC solutions are more energy efficient, sometimes by as much as 50% more.
