Prepare your HVAC system and home for summer

Prepare your HVAC system and home for summer

Before long, you’ll be relying on your air conditioner to keep your home cool and comfortable through the summer months. Like anything mechanical, your HVAC system needs maintenance this time of year. Investing in HVAC service, including tune-up and cleaning, will ensure your AC runs smoothly and efficiently all season.

Avalanche Mechanical in Edmonton is a full-service HVAC company. They share a spring maintenance checklist for your HVAC system.

Give your air conditioner some attention

While we will still have a few cooler days that require the furnace, your air conditioner will be doing most of the work this summer. Before you turn it on, clear away any leaves and debris around the AC and from inside the grill. Make sure the unit has at least two feet of clearance around it.

Replace the air filter. A dirty filter will restrict airflow and cause strain on the system. If you run the air conditioner a lot, change the filter a few times over the warmer months. Read more about essential maintenance for your AC unit.

Set your thermostat to cooling, and run it for a few minutes. You want to make sure it’s working before it’s a scorching hot day.

Schedule your annual HVAC maintenance. An experienced technician from Avalanche Mechanical can come to your home and do a full inspection and tune-up of your air conditioning system. This preventative maintenance will ensure your AC is running efficiently. Annual service will catch any minor problems before they become significant issues.

Make sure your home is efficient

Running your air conditioner in the summer will use up energy. You want to make sure your home is efficient, too, to help reduce energy loss and your monthly bills. First, check your home for air leaks around windows and doors. They might need new caulking or weather-stripping. You might also want to upgrade your attic insulation if you find it’s letting in too much heat.

Replace the air conditioner if necessary

If your older air conditioner is in a constant state of repair, replace it. You’ll save more money in the long run on repairs and lower energy bills. Make sure you choose an energy-efficient model recommended for your HVAC system and the size of your home. Avalanche Mechanical can show you the best options for your home.
