Spring Forward and Start Cleaning – Don’t Overlook Your HVAC System!

With the time change just behind us, it’s time to start getting your spring cleaning to do list in order. We’re officially gaining more daylight each day and there’s no better time than now to start packing away your winter things and cleaning out closets while you’re at it. Most people begin to purge and deep clean their homes and garages around this time each year but some of you are forgetting one very important part of your home – your HVAC system!

We’ve had a particularly rough allergy season and there’s no doubt your indoor air quality has suffered. Start preparing your HVAC system before the summer heat rolls on by adding these important things to your spring-cleaning list.

Sweep, Mop & Dust

As our temperatures begin to warm up but aren’t hitting terrible highs yet, it’s likely that we’ll be opening windows and doors to let fresh air in. It’s essential to do a deep cleaning of your entire home including dusting, sweeping, and mopping. Dirt, allergens, and dust can build up in our homes and the accumulation can be detrimental to our health. Don’t forget often overlooked places like unused window sills, ceiling fans, and surfaces around your home.

Wash Your Windows

Have a pressure washer? Now’s the time to break it out and give all your windows a good once over. Don’t own a high-powered machine? No problem, a bucket of soapy water and a good rinse will do the trick.

Don't Forget the Filters

Filters that aren’t clean aren’t effective. Whether you have a furnace or an AC system, you should be changing your filters regularly. If your filters are in easy to reach places, feel free to change them yourself. A furnace filter should be changed once before fall and once in the springtime. Your AC filter should be changed more often.

Cut Out the Clutter

No one enjoys clutter in or around their home. It has a tendency to cause stress and anxiety and worse, it can contribute to collecting dust and allergens in your home. This can really bring your indoor air quality down and bother allergies. The same goes for outside your home. If your yard is overgrown or cluttered, especially around your AC unit or heat pump, you could be causing damage to your system.

A little preventative maintenance goes a long way to having a happy Spring season. Don’t forget to schedule your air conditioning maintenance with Fred’s Home Services so that it is ready to take on the Summer heat when it finally comes!
