When it comes to safety and prevention, you may not be aware you need to take special care of your HVAC unit this spring. It is easy to forget; spring is in bloom after all!
However, all of those beautiful things about spring—green grass, blossoming flowers, unfolding foliage—are precisely what you need to watch out for.
Take a look at your outdoor unit; is it able to breathe? Or is it covered in a layer of dust, pollen, broken twigs, and grass clipping? If it’s buried beneath yard debris, it may not be able to function efficiently.
Here are some typical spring problems likely to impact your system’s performance:
Most of the items above can be gently cleaned and removed with a little bit of effort, but it’s best to leave intensive coil cleaning and electrical fixes to the professionals. Whatever you do, be sure you turn off power to the unit before attempting any DIY debris removal.
