As you start storing away your winter wardrobe and preparing your home for the upcoming warm weather, it is also a good time to maintain your HVAC system.
Here are a couple “spring cleaning” tips for the next few weeks:
– Change the air filters (the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends replacing the filter at least every three months).
– Turn on the air conditioner (just a quick test run to make sure everything is working properly).
– Clean the outdoor area surrounding HVAC unit (sweep away fallen leaves, branches, dirt and debris, cut back bushes, grass, and other plants so your unit isn’t crowded).
