The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining and spring has truly arrived in Folsom, California. No matter how excited you are about the warmer weather, don’t forget to make sure your home is ready for late spring and summer temperatures. From changing your air filter to considering HVAC upgrades, follow these tips to get your air conditioner ready for spring:
Clear Around the Outside Unit
When it comes to maintaining your air conditioner, we recommend starting outside. First, brush off the leaves, dirt and other debris that collected on the exterior unit during fall and winter. Then trim away any grass, bushes or flowers growing within three feet. When you do yard work during the spring and summer, make sure nothing blocks the airflow around the outside unit.
Change the Air Conditioner Filter
Next, head inside to change the HVAC filter. Filters capture dust and other airborne particles, eliminating them from your air supply and preventing them from accumulating inside the HVAC system. Since HVAC filters become clogged over time, you’ll want to replace yours at the start of the season and every few months during the summer. Our team recommends setting a reminder to make the switch every 90 days.
Consider Essential Upgrades
Before setting and forgetting your air conditioner for the spring and summer, consider key upgrades that can help your HVAC system perform better. From zoning systems to indoor air quality components, our team can help you design the ultimate cooling system for your home.
