Keeping Your HVAC System Free and Clear

After our heater stopped working altogether last winter, we realized that it might be time to consult with a professional. We called a family friend who is also an HVAC contractor and he came out right away to see what he could do. After taking a look at things, he told us that our vents were almost completely blocked with dust and dirt. He recommended a vent cleaning company to come out and help, and they removed loads of debris the next day with specialized suction tools. After that, our HVAC system ran almost perfectly. This blog is all about the importance of keeping your HVAC system free, clear, and functional.

How To Make Sure Your AC Unit Is Ready For Summer

Even though you may be drenched in snowflakes right about now, summer is on the horizon. In fact, in just a couple of months, you may be wishing that temperatures were as frigid as they are right about now. With your heater cranked up and your furnace burning that midnight oil, the last thing that may be on your mind is your air conditioner, but it's never too early to get ready. So, how can you make sure that your air conditioning unit is ready for the hot summer months ahead? This article will take a closer look. Read on to learn a little bit more. 

Have It Tuned Up

One of the best things that you can do before you even turn on your unit is to have someone come over and do a tune-up. During the tune-up, they can take a close look at the coils and hoses in your system to make sure they are in good shape. Sometimes when a unit has been run for several years consecutively, it can get tears in the hoses, which is a natural part of the wear and tear process. Luckily, your air conditioning repair technician will be able to repair them for you. In addition to looking at the coils and hoses, they will also look at the coolant to make sure that there is enough in there. 

Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned

Another thing that you can do is have your air ducts professionally cleaned. Your air ducts (just like any part of your house) get filled with dirt and dust, which means that the air that comes out of your vents will be dirty. Before you turn on your AC unit for the summer, make sure that you have your air ducts cleaned. During the cleaning, the HVAC contractor will vacuum the ducts out for you and clean off all of your air vents as well; that way you know that as little dust as possible is coming from your system into your home. 

Being prepared never hurt anyone. Before you go to turn on your air conditioning system this summer, make sure that you use the tips that are listed in this article; that way you won't have to worry about your system wearing down at all. If you want to learn more about these and other services, make sure that you reach out to an air conditioning company near you.
