There are several reasons why you should prepare your HVAC unit before summer starts. You'll be able to increase the maximum output of your A/C, keep your energy costs down and increase the overall comfort of your home. Here are the five easy steps to prepare your HVAC unit for the summer:
Replace the FilterThe air filter blocks particles from entering your air conditioner. A homeowner is encouraged to replace this filter every month if the A/C is used every day. Most people use their air conditioners occasionally and get around to replacing the filter once a year. You can hire a professional or do the task yourself. For a DIY project, you'll need to turn off the power first, remove the old filter and insert the new one, making sure it's the right size and brand.
Install a Smart ThermostatA smart thermostat makes it easier to control your home's cooling, heating and ventilation system. You have more options to increase and decrease the temperatures. You control the exact times and dates when the A/C turns on to help you save money and electricity.
Schedule an InspectionHave your HVAC unit inspected long before summer begins. Schedule a professional inspection to ensure your system is prepared to run all summer long. This can help you save thousands of dollars in possible repairs.
