No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.  ~Proverb

Thank goodness for that! With Spring comes blue skies, warmer days, longer nights and…..spring cleaning?

That’s right…spring cleaning. What do we have to do with spring cleaning? There’s never a better time to get your AC in shape for the Spring and Summer months! We have complied a list of things you can do to prep your HVAC for the change in seasons.

  1. First and easiest thing to do? Change your filters! This isn’t just for Spring but now is a good time to do it!
  2. Pop your head into your attic to see if your ducts are sealed properly. How would you know? If you have the air on and it’s cold in your attic, you have a leak.
  3. Take a look at your condenser unit outside and see if it looks clean and free of debris that might stop the blades from running. During the winter leaves or dirt can get in there from the weather and they need to be removed.
  4. Make sure your exterior pipes are still properly insulated and protected from the weather. They can take a beating over the Winter months.

“But I haven’t used my AC all Winter long.” In a central air system the heating and cooling shares the same ductwork so your ducts have been busy all season long and require cleaning. At Casteel Heating and Cooling we recommend you schedule a tune up for your system when the season changes form Winter to Spring. one of our experienced and professional technicians can come  perform a very comprehensive 25 point inspection. That’s one thing you can check off your Spring cleaning list!
