Prepping your hvac for summer

Many of us are feeling the change of the seasons as we usher ourselves from spring into summer. After a long winter, it doesn’t seem like we had much of a spring after winter dragged so long into the spring season. However, the weather is heating up in many parts of the country, as the summer season is just around the corner. At this point, many of us have turned our heating systems down, or shut them off entirely for the season. What does this mean for your HVAC systems? Just leave the furnace because you are no longer using it, and turn on the air conditioning right away? This might not be the best idea. Making sure that you properly shut down your heating system and properly setting up your air conditioning system before you get started using it is a much better idea. Having both systems cleaned and having their regularly scheduled maintenance is a great way to keep your system performing well and last longer. This is also a good time to assess if either of your systems have incurred any damage during their high season, or off season. Leaving a system unmaintained for a long period of time can cause problems for a number of different reasons. Also, you will want to be sure that your system will be able to handle the upcoming season. Performing maintenance can ensure that your system will be prepared to handle any season coming up. Call your local hvac company to schedule your maintenance appointment.
