Spring Checklist for Your HVAC System

Spring has sprung in Kansas City, and after the cold winter, it is time to check in on your HVAC system before the hot days ahead. Whether your system is new or you simply can’t remember how old it is, maintaining your HVAC unit this spring can help prolong the life of your system, as well as get you the most out of your cooling needs.

This spring, use the following checklist to help care for your HVAC system.

Replace Your Air Filter
Spring is a great reminder to change your system’s air filter to help protect against dust and dirt buildup. By changing your filter regularly, you can help ensure proper, healthy airflow into your home, while also helping your HVAC system to run more efficiently.

Test for Operation Functionality
Before the Midwest’s warmer temperatures become unbearable, test and make sure your HVAC system is properly cooling your home to the temperature you dictate. If you notice any sort of problem, call Overland Park Heating and Cooling so that an expert can tend to your system quickly, and make sure your home will function properly and remain comfortable for the scorching months ahead.

Clean Away Outdoor Debris
Take a little time this spring to clean around your HVAC unit’s outdoor vents. Make sure the area is free from dirt, grass, leaves, or even things like shovels and rakes. Any object near the vents can restrict your home’s airflow, resulting in reduced efficiency for your HVAC system.

When you add checking up on your HVAC system to your spring to-do list, you will set your home up for success during the warm months ahead. Even if you personally can’t find the time to replace your air filters or give your unit the attention it deserves, simply making a call to Overland Park Heating and Cooling to schedule a maintenance appointment is the perfect way to keep your system in top shape.
