Sweating one day, shivering the next…the temperature swings of spring can wreak havoc on your comfort. Here are a few ways to ensure your HVAC system is prepared to handle any extreme spring weather may bring.

1. Schedule Pre-Season Maintenance

HVAC units can lose up to 5% of their efficiency each year if not properly maintained. Advance Mechanical’s professional maintenance service is designed to improve your system’s performance and extend the life of your equipment. We clean your unit as well as identify and correct small issues to make certain it is running efficiently. This helps avoid costly issues in the future!

2. Make Repairs a Priority

Warmer temperatures will be here to stay before too long, but don’t let that discourage you from having repairs made to your heat. If the furnace, for example, is malfunctioning, call to set up an appointment for repair. When left unattended, you risk running into bigger problems down the road. 

3. Change Air Filters

Filters are meant to catch dust, dirt and other debris, however when clogged with pollutants, air flow becomes restricted. In fact, a dirty air filter is the top reason for HVAC failure. To help your system function at peak performance, change the air filters regularly.

4. Utilize Programmable Thermostats

Constant adjustments to your thermostat cause your HVAC system to work harder. TRY to let your programmable thermostat do what it does best and don’t manually switch the temperature around. This not only reduces strain on your unit, but it helps cut energy waste as well.
