At the moment, the Village area is still shaking off the memory of a long, cold winter. But the summer isn’t too far around the bend, and with it will come the humidity and heat of another sweltering Virginia summer. Before that time arrives, make sure that your air conditioning system is up to the task.
With this in mind, here are some things to consider as you prepare your HVAC for summer in Village.
Replace your filters
One of the easiest things to do to prep your HVAC system is to check the quality of your air filter. It probably comes as no surprise that a filter with rips in it, or one that is clogged with dirt, isn’t doing your HVAC system any favors. In fact, a deteriorating air filter could cause undue stress on your overall HVAC system and lead to costly repairs.
Install an upgraded thermostat
One of the most commonly overlooked ways to prepare your HVAC for summer in Village is to upgrade your thermostat. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, or if it’s been several years since you updated your thermostat, you could be missing out on hundreds of dollars in energy savings each year.
Clean your system inside and out
While your filters are being replaced, you can take things a step further and give your HVAC system a thorough cleaning. Make sure to wipe down the coils on the outside unit, clean the area around your outdoor unit, clean the fins and clean the condensation lines.
Have a pro look things over
Ideally, you should schedule an HVAC professional to inspect your system before the hottest days of the year. A professional can inspect your insulation, check your lines for leaks and perform a number of other routine tasks that you may have never considered but which will provide enormous benefits in the months to come.
Get your ducts cleaned
Over the course of its life, pounds of dirt and minute debris will make its way through your HVAC’s air ducts. Most of those particles will be filtered out. Some, however, will stick to the sides of your ducts like cholesterol to the side of an artery. If your HVAC system is several years old, it could require a deep clean of your air ducts.
