The spring season has finally arrived! As the winter frost begins to melt away and the sun’s warmth returns, it’s time for homeowners to start thinking about this year’s spring cleaning. In addition to the usual dusting, vacuuming, decluttering, and more —several HVAC-related tasks should be on everyone’s spring cleaning checklist!

Test Your Cooling System
During the frigid winter, your heating system saw plenty of usage while your cooling system got to kick back, relax, and enjoy some time off. Just because your air conditioner has been dormant for winter and early weeks of spring doesn’t mean issues couldn’t have developed with your cooling system during the wintertime. You don’t want to wait till it’s 80 degrees outside before running your air conditioning for the first time just to discover that it’s not cooling your home properly. Accordingly, homeowners must test their cooling system at the start of spring to ensure everything is running properly and make any necessary repairs.
Change Your Air Filter
Checking and replacing your air filter is a task that should be completed every 1–3 months. However, we understand many homeowners forget to check if their filter needs to be replaced. Fortunately, the start of a new season is the perfect time to replace your air filter! Changing your air filter at the start of spring can help ensure your air conditioning system runs smoothly and efficiently throughout the season.
Clean Around The Outdoor Unit
During the fall and winter months, debris such as dead leaves, weeds, and fallen branches will likely pile up around your outdoor HVAC unit. If enough debris makes its way into your outdoor unit, it can negatively impact the efficiency of your HVAC system. Accordingly, you should take some time to clean up around your outdoor HVAC unit — removing all debris and trimming nearby bushes and weeds.
