Birds are going to start chirping, schools are going to be ending the 2017-2018 school year, and the sun is going to shine for longer hours. That can only mean one thing – winter is winding down! With winter coming to a close end, it is important to make sure you are ready for the warmer days ahead.

Warmer days mean it’s time to start thinking about using your AC unit more frequently. That means you might want to schedule your HVAC maintenance during the spring season when you’re switching from heat to air in a single day.

Spring cleaning your HVAC system can help in the following ways:

Improved Air Quality

A good spring cleaning takes care of clogged air filters, dust buildup, and other issues preventing your family from enjoying the healthiest indoor air quality possible. Spring is a great time for opening the windows and letting in the fresh air. Once temperatures start rising, your HVAC unit will take over and keep your home cool.

Extended HVAC Lifespan

Annual HVAC maintenance must be a priority to keep your system running at peak efficiency. Scheduling a spring maintenance appointment ensures your system is properly lubricated and clean, which is essential after long winter months. Regular maintenance also helps prevent parts from breaking which can lead to costly repairs. Not having an HVAC unit can put a damper on your daily plans if yours should break down on a hot day.

Replace Any Worn Parts

Parts will wear out, no matter how durable modern HVAC systems are designed to be. If it’s been a while since your last maintenance appointment, spring is a great time to make that call. Your HVAC technician can identify any worn parts before you’re left to suffer in the summer heat.

Beat the Rush!

All the spring cleaning you are already going to do will benefit your HVAC system automatically! Cleaning your home regularly, including dusting, vacuuming, mopping and washing laundry, is a good way to remove allergens that your family tracks in every day with shoes, clothes, jackets, pets and more. Your air filter will still do its job of trapping airborne pollutants, but regular cleaning will give it a little less work to do.

Don’t put off your furnace maintenance any longer! Frantic calls are much more common during summer and winter when people need cooling and heating the most, which tends to keep BMC Clower HVAC technicians on their toes. Schedule or request an appointment for spring cleaning as soon as possible. We’ll ensure your home stays comfortable no matter the season!
