Three Spring Cleaning Tips for Your HVAC


There are several comfort accessories to help keep your HVAC system running as clean as possible.

Consumers have a large number of comfort accessories to choose from when it comes to their HVAC. Some will make it more comfortable inside, while others provide convenient ways to maintain the HVAC unit or keep the indoor air clean. This spring, there are several things you can do with your HVAC system to keep your home or office as clean as possible. Let’s take a look:

#1: Change or Clean the Air Filter

The simplest thing you can do to maintain clean indoor air and a clean HVAC system is to install a fresh air filter. Most people forget about the HVAC air filter because it is in a part of the building that doesn’t get much attention, such as the basement, attic or crawl space. But despite it being out of the way, it’s a very important part of the HVAC system.

Without a clean air filter, the indoor air doesn't receive the filtration it should. Additionally, a clogged air filter will reduce the efficiency of the HVAC's air handler. In the best case scenario, you'll spend extra money on your energy bill. At worst, you'll reduce the life of your HVAC system because it has to work so hard.

#2: Clean Your Ductwork

Even with a clean air filter, if the ducts are dirty, then only dirty air will come out of the air vents. Over time, the air ducts will develop a film of dust and dirt that can contaminate the indoor air. Depending on how bad the dirt and dust buildup is, an extensive ductwork cleanup may be necessary.

#3: Conduct Preventative Maintenance

Before the summer season arrives and the air conditioner gets heavy use, HVAC owners should take the time to have a routine check done on the HVAC unit. This preventative maintenance can find small problems before they can turn into costly repair bills.
