Don't Sweat It: Preparing Your HVAC System for Summer Heat

April 3rd, 2024

With the summer heat on the horizon, it's time to get your HVAC system ready to keep you cool and comfortable during the hottest months of the year. Here's what you need to do to ensure your system is in top shape when the temperatures start to soar:

1. Schedule Professional Maintenance: It's essential to kick off the season with a professional tune-up from our experienced technicians. We'll inspect and test performance of your HVAC system, ensuring it's primed for peak efficiency all summer long. Don't wait until the heatwave hits—schedule your maintenance service now to beat the rush!

2. Clean or Replace Air Filters: Keep your indoor air quality fresh and your system running smoothly by checking and replacing air filters regularly. Clogged filters can restrict airflow and reduce efficiency, so make sure to keep them clean to maintain optimal performance. Not sure how often to change your filters? Give us a call, and we'll guide you through it.

3. Inspect and Clean Outdoor Units: Take a quick peek outside and make sure your outdoor HVAC unit is free from any debris like leaves or grass clippings. Clearing away obstructions ensures proper airflow, preventing overheating and potential malfunctions. And while you're at it, consider scheduling a professional coil cleaning to keep things running smoothly.

4. Check Coolant Levels and System Pressure: Keep an eye on your coolant levels and system pressure to ensure your system's cooling capacity isn't compromised. Low refrigerant levels or improper pressure can lead to reduced performance and even damage to your system. Leave the technical stuff to us—we'll make sure everything's in tip-top shape.

5. Consider Upgrading to Energy-Efficient Equipment: If you're still relying on an older, inefficient HVAC system, now's the perfect time to consider an upgrade. Newer, energy-efficient equipment not only provides better comfort but also saves you money on your energy bills. Plus, with available rebates and financing options, it's more affordable than you might think.

Summer's right around the corner, so don't wait until the heatwave hits to take care of your HVAC system. Follow these proactive steps, and you'll stay cool and comfortable all summer long.
