It’s spring cleaning time for people across Mount Pleasant, Texas. Spring cleaning isn’t just about de-cluttering your closet and dusting the lampshades. It’s also about cleaning the parts of your home that often go overlooked, such as the HVAC system. When it’s running properly, a clean AC system will improve comfort and efficiency for your home.
Start With Routine Household Chores
Before thinking about your HVAC system, you have to start with eliminating the dust inside your home. If not, it’ll just keep recirculating each time the AC unit turns on. Take the time to dust all the surfaces in your house, including the lamps, overhead lighting and behind the TV. Don’t forget to mop the floors and clean the dust and grime off the windows.
Check the HVAC Filter Every Month
When the system won’t blow cold air, one of the simplest fixes is to replace the HVAC filter. By replacing it every 30 to 90 days, you can avoid clogs that lead to inefficiency and breakdowns. Remember to check your filter at least once every month during the cooling season.
Invest in Professional Duct Cleaning
Think about how much stuff goes through the ductwork. Dust, dirt, allergens and other contaminates linger there and circulate throughout your home every day. Cleaning the ductwork is one way to improve your home’s air quality while reducing allergens. Invest in professional duct cleaning to improve comfort and efficiency in your home.
It’s not only new AC systems that improve comfort and efficiency in a home. Even an older unit can provide optimal cooling as long as you maintain it over time.
