The cold season is over, and it is time to prepare for spring, which calls for HVAC maintenance. Transitioning your HVAC system from winter to summer can help you save energy and ensure your home stays comfortable during the warmer months. Capital Plumbing is here with some tips for summer HVAC maintenance.

Replace or Clean Air Filters

One of the most important steps in transitioning your HVAC system from the colder season to summer is to replace or clean air filters. It is essential because dirty filters can reduce the efficiency of your system and lead to poor indoor air quality. Dust and debris can clog up the system and cause health issues for those with allergies or respiratory issues. Ideally, you should replace or clean your air filters every 1-3 months.

Check Thermostat Settings

You will need to adjust your thermostat settings to reflect the warmer temperatures. Make sure your thermostat is set to the appropriate temperature for the season, and consider using a programmable thermostat to save energy and money.

Clean The Outdoor Unit

The outdoor unit of your HVAC system can become clogged with dust and debris during the colder months, which can lead to reduced efficiency. To clean the outdoor unit, turn off the power to the unit and use a garden hose to gently wash away any dirt and debris. If there are any plants or bushes growing near it, make sure they are cut back.

Schedule Maintenance

Regular maintenance is important to keep your HVAC system running efficiently and to identify any potential issues before they become major problems. Consider scheduling a maintenance visit with a professional HVAC in Edmonton at the start of the summer season.

Consider Upgrading Your System

If your HVAC system is more than 10 years old or is not functioning as efficiently as it should, consider upgrading to a newer, more energy-efficient system. This can help you save money and improve the air quality.

Following these steps will ensure that your HVAC system is ready to take on the warmer season and that your home stays comfortable and energy efficient all summer long. In case of any problems, call Capital Plumbing and Heating!
