With the starting of the spring, you should start thinking about spring cleaning and ensure that your HVAC is totally ready for upcoming unbearable hot days, i.e. summer. Preparing ahead of time, will not only save your time and money but also ensure that your system will run efficiently throughout the summer season
Apart from this, performing spring maintenance for your HVAC system ensures that you and your family will only get fresh air. Besides, this will definitely increase the lifespan of the HVAC system unit.
You can Perform HVAC Maintenance Yourself
Keep in mind, in order to make sure that the HVAC system is running at its best speed, you do not need to spend on expensive repairing bills. There are other alternative means that you can apply to ensure that the HVAC system is in its peak working condition.
Based on our years of experience and customer feedback, experts of AC maintenance Dubai comes with some pocket-friendly tips that you can attempt to get the best performance from your HVAC system. These will also assure that during the midway of the summer, you will sit relax and enjoy the cool air.
Change the Air Filter
This is a common tip and followed by most of the homeowners. Due to two reasons, we always recommend you to change the air filter. Firstly, the procedure is very easy to implement. And second, changing the air filter will surely provide a positive impact on the HVAC system.
If you use a clean air filter, this will definitely eliminate the energy usage in your house. Apart from this, by eliminating the airborne particles such as allergens & dust, a clean filter can raise the air quality of your home. It is essential, in case you live in dusty regions of Dubai.
Inspect the Ductwork & Drainage Hole
The ductwork is a crucial component of the HVAC system. At the starting of the spring, we advise you to inspect the ductwork. Now, while checking, you need to make sure that every leak joint or holes are sealed. Besides, if you encounter any cracks in the duct, then immediately call the professional expert like us.
Within the cabinet’s base, you will see the drainage hole. To keep your HVAC unit working, in the most effective way, make sure that the drainage hole is clean. Unfortunately, if not, then the drainage hole can be clogged and restrict the HVAC unit functioning. Besides, a clogged drainage hole can produce more stress on the HVAC unit, as well as lower its effectiveness. We also suggest you check the P-trap located beside the drainage hole and ensure that it’s clean.
Keep the Windows & Door Closed
In case, any of your family members are suffering from allergies or asthma, then we advise you to close your windows and doors in order to prevent allergens from getting inside your home. Also, we recommend you to close the windows and doors during the summer season. This will not only keep away the allergens but also keep the humid & hot air out. According to the experts, if too much humidity and hot air enter your home, this can put a strain on the HVAC system, as well as deduce its efficiency and increase your repairing cost.
Inspect the Outer part of HVAC and Remove the Obstructions
You must regularly check the outside part of the HVAC system, as it’s subjected to various environmental components. Apart from this, in order to remove loose objectives and debris from the unit, you must regularly check the outer part. This will also help you to ensure that any plant surrounding the HVAC unit does not grow more beyond 2 feet.
Install a Thermostat
In case, you haven’t installed a programmable thermostat within your HVAC system, then probably it’s the best time to do so. A programmable thermostat will not only provide you with better temperature control but this will also reduce the energy bill as you can adjust the temperature. Moreover, spring is the perfect time. If you are planning to install a thermostat. Apart from this, if you have already installed a programmable thermostat, then upgrade and adjust the system’s schedule. Besides, check regularly and ensure that all the air vents are opened.
Dry out the Dehumidifier
With time, the dehumidifier can be invaluable. So, in order to ensure that it runs smoothly, you need to take out the outer casting and then let your system dry. Once your HVAC system dries completely, you have to vacuum the entire unit and wipe down the debris and dust. Then, fit the outer casting to its previous place.
Consider Updating Your System
If you wish to install a new HVAC system, spring will be the perfect time for it. In case you are using a system for more than 10 years, we suggest you buy a new one. A new system will surely save your money in heating and cooling bills. So, we suggest you upgrade your system at the start of the spring, not in the middle of the summer when without an HVAC system the weather of your home becomes unbearable.
Now, though you have checked and replaced the air filter, cleaned the outside unit, installed a new thermostat, still it’s a wise decision to check your HVAC system by professional experts.
