There might be several items on your Spring Cleaning to-do list, but did you know that yourHVAC system should be one of them? Yes, it’s just as important to have clean indoor air quality as it is to have a clean home interior.
Give Your AC Unit a Once-Over
There are several problems that you can see, and some that you cannot. For example, you can easily tell if your outdoor AC unit is covered in leaves or other debris. You can tell if your air filters need to be changed by seeing how dirty they are. But you’ll want to call a professional to check out your air ducts and the inside of your AC unit.
Get a Professional’s Opinion
Experienced HVAC professionals know what to look for. They have been trained to detect potential problems and to quickly and safely clean out ventilation systems. You can also ask them questions about energy efficiency, and how to maintain your unit to keep it running at maximum capacity.
Think About Energy Efficient Upgrades
Another good thing to ask about is an energy efficient upgrade. The air conditioning servicer you choose should present you with modern, energy saving options. There are EPA-approved air conditioning units, and HEPA air filters that can go for half a year without replacement.
