spring hvac checklist

It’s that time of year again. The seasons are changing, which means your beloved HVAC unit is about to have to deal with a lot of adjustments all at once. The air will get a little hotter – even here in Milwaukee – and you’ll have to compensate for your own lifestyle accordingly.

But what should you specifically be doing to your HVAC unit to ensure this transition goes off without a hitch? That’s what we’re here to find out. The pros at Roman Electric have a few handy tips that will hopefully make this spring season a comfortable and enjoyable one for you and your family.

Change Your Air Filter

Although you should be changing out the air filter in your home about every 30 days anyway, it helps to go ahead and change it now regardless. When your HVAC unit starts filtering the springtime air, it has to deal with a brand-new adjustment out of nowhere.

This can actually expedite the clogging in your air filter even if you already replaced it recently. To help ease the burden on your air circulation, go ahead and swap out the filter just to give it a clean slate to work with as spring arrives.

Remove Debris from the Exterior

It might’ve been a while since you took a stroll around your home to take a look at the outdoor condenser. When you inspect it, see if there are any loose branches, leaves or other pieces of debris around it. These things can get stuck in the condenser and hamper its ability to work properly, and your system will suffer a pretty noticeable drop in efficiency.

Clear out anything you find and make sure the condenser has a few feet of clearance in every direction around it to ensure you’ll be operating at maximum efficiency as spring hits.

Seal Windows and Doors

As you adjust the usage of your HVAC unit in the coming months, you want to make sure none of your valuable air escapes into the outdoors. Invest in a few sealing materials to shore up the doors and windows of your home to prevent any significant energy loss from occurring. You can do this by purchasing weather stripping and placing it under the door and by using some caulk or over-the-counter sealants for the windows.

Schedule Spring Maintenance

You can always perform some handy DIY methods to make sure your home’s HVAC unit will work at peak performance, but there’s nothing like having an expert reassure you that everything’s looking good.
