Spring Cleaning—Don’t Neglect Your HVAC System

Don't Neglect Your HVAC System

Coming Soon—A Long, Hot Summer

It’s been an extended, mostly cool spring season in Central Florida this year. Though the air conditioning may be running on these warm afternoons, it really hasn’t been called upon to work very hard just yet.

You know it’s coming though. Another hot, steamy Florida summer. The season when you break into a sweat walking out to your car in the morning, the interlude that drives people into the air-conditioned sanctuaries of their homes and cars, and makes them daydream of beaches and pools.  In the not too distant future, that lazily purring HVAC system will have to shift into overdrive to deliver the cool air we all crave.

Take some time now to make certain that everything is running at top efficiency. This is the time to make certain that the filter is new or cleaned.  A dirty or clogged filter makes the air conditioner work harder, and can cause the air compressor to break down. Additionally, keep in mind that your machine has to be able to breathe.  Check to see if there are any shrubs or debris too near the outdoor unit and get rid of them if need be.

While you’re in spring cleaning/cleanup mode is a good time to notice how your thermostat is doing. If it is an older model, you may consider replacing it with a new digital one to more accurately represent temperature levels. Take a look at your ductwork, or have a reliable contractor do so. Leaking or dirty ducts can cost you big money.

Don’t put off any needed maintenance or upgrades until the heat truly sets in. We are approaching the busiest time of year for AC company installers and service technicians. You don’t want to be caught with a broken down or malfunctioning unit, and a long wait for repair or replacement.

Regular maintenance and inspection will keep your HVAC System in tip-top condition.  So show your HVAC some Love! Call or Contact us here at D.G. Meyer Inc. for service or repair today
