With spring soon approaching, that wonderful time of the year is closing in on us…spring cleaning! While it might not get you quite as excited as Christmas, or winning the lottery, it’s still important, for your HVAC system.
At this point in Omaha, you’ve probably endured a pretty cold winter, hopefully without your furnace breaking down. You’re probably itching to be able to turn down the heat and step outside into the blissful warming ways of the sun. But don’t get too excited—the sun is going to get a little overzealous in a few months and before you know it, you’ll want as much AC power as you can get.
That, among many other reasons, is why you should consider calling HVAC contractors to service your system as an essential part of your spring cleaning. You wouldn’t just leave your car without an oil change for years at a time, and in a similar vein, your HVAC system needs to be consistently maintained. Spring is as good a time as any to give it the care it deserves. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you should add this to your checklist.
You Don’t Want Any HVAC Problems During the Summer
Spring is a wonderful intermittent period for your HVAC system—a time of rest during a reason where, for the most part, the air is neither too hot nor too cold. This means that it’s a perfect time for a checkup; if there is a problem with your HVAC, you won’t notice its absence nearly as much as you would in the winter or summer. And speaking of summer, it’s coming, fast. Do you really want your unit to break down and leave you without AC for who knows how long?
The important thing to remember is that, with spring coming up, your HVAC has probably seen a lot of use heating your home through the last few months. If any machine works excessively, there’s going to be some wear and tear. The odds of finding a problem in your system are higher when you’re coming off a period where your system has been working vigorously. The name of the game here is preventative care; HVAC contractors are able to identify any issues your HVAC has, and implement swift repairs if they’re needed.
You Should Be Doing It Anyway
We’re just going to say it—no matter what time of the year it is, you really should be getting your HVAC system serviced on a regular basis. But let’s be honest here; how many people actually do that? Most people know that their technology should be cared for and maintained, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to do that all the time. The truth is, if you haven’t put the consistent care into your HVAC that it really needs, you’re not alone. It’s only human that you haven’t remembered to replace your air filter every month, or that you can’t remember the last time you got your ducts inspected.
That being said, you should be doing those things, and trust us when we say that doing them once is better than doing them never. That’s another reason why calling an HVAC contractor is a great choice for spring cleaning; even if you don’t plan on putting in every last amount of work that your unit requires throughout the year, you can at least feel better that it got at least one good checkup.
It Will Help Your Allergies
Even though it’s easy to get excited for spring and summer (especially after a freezing Omaha winter), the allergies that accompany these seasons are something we’re not quite as eager to experience. But come they will, and when they do, you won’t want to sit around with the knowledge that things could have been better if you just got your HVAC system serviced.
Did you know that, especially after a season of heavy use, certain allergens can accumulate in your HVAC? The most egregious offenders are dust and mold, but a variety of malicious airborne particles can find themselves caught up inside. The last thing you’re going to want this summer is for your typical seasonal allergies to be exacerbated by whatever is coming out of your vents.
If you call your local HVAC contractors, they can clean out the allergens in your system, ensuring that you won’t have to worry about breathing in the air in your own home.
