5 Tips to Get Your HVAC System Ready For Spring

March 26, 2024 | Blog

An Air Conditioner Checklist To Protect Your Comfort

As the seasons change, preparing your HVAC system for the warmer months ahead is crucial. Spring AC maintenance ensures your unit operates efficiently, providing comfort without unexpected breakdowns.

Air Tech of Pasadena stands as a trusted provider of cooling solutions! We’ve compiled an air conditioner checklist to help you get started, ensuring your system is in top shape for spring.

Schedule Your AC Tune-Up

A comprehensive air conditioning check-up is essential to kick off your spring preparations. This preventive measure not only enhances your system’s efficiency but also identifies potential issues before they escalate. Here are some examples of what a maintenance check-up should cover:

  • Check refrigerant levels — Your AC needs refrigerant to provide your home with cool air, meaning low levels reduce efficiency.
  • Inspect coils and fins — Bent coils and fins can obstruct airflow, diminishing your system’s efficiency.
  • Clean dirt and debris — A thorough cleaning of your HVAC system removes blockages, promoting better airflow and system health.
  • Replace any worn pieces — Worn or damaged parts can lead to inefficiencies or breakdowns.
  • Test for any issues — Identifying and addressing potential problems early can prevent future breakdowns.

When you’re ready to schedule your AC maintenance, reach out to the dependable team at Air Tech of Pasadena! We’re here to help our community!

Clean Around Your Outdoor AC Unit

Obstructions around your outdoor cooling unit can lead to reduced airflow and increased strain on the system. When leaves, twigs or dirt accumulate, they can clog the unit’s fins and coils. This blockage can impair its ability to operate effectively.

Buildup can diminish the system’s efficiency and lead to overheating. To avoid these issues, be sure to make sure the area around your system is clean.

Clean Any Indoor Units

A clean indoor AC unit is essential for maintaining comfortable temperatures and efficient operation. Homeowners can help keep their indoor units clean by routinely replacing or cleaning air filters. This task is a simple yet effective way to block dust, pollen and other airborne particles from entering the system.

Additionally, scheduling professional maintenance allows for a thorough cleaning of internal components. These steps contribute to the overall well-being of the household and the longevity of the AC system.

Protect Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality

Spring brings an increase in allergens, making indoor air quality (IAQ) a significant concern. Improving your home’s IAQ can protect your family from seasonal allergies and enhance overall comfort. To do this, consider taking the following steps:

  • Dust and vacuum regularly
  • Replace HVAC filters
  • Add air purifiers
  • Control humidity levels
  • Regularly clean bedding and upholstery

To learn more about how you can protect your home from poor IAQ, reach out to our team at Air Tech of Pasadena! We have the knowledge to guide you on the best way to improve the air and comfort in your home.

Seal And Insulate Your Home

Proper sealing and insulation are crucial for maintaining your home’s comfort and efficiency. Leaks around doors, windows and ductwork can lead to significant energy losses. This issue forces your HVAC system to work harder. Inspect and seal any leaks with weather stripping or caulk and ensure your home is adequately insulated to keep the cool air in and the warm air out.
