Spring Cleaning Starts With Your Home Comfort System!


With spring just around the corner, spring cleaning is a tradition that should extend to your HVAC system to ensure your home is running in top shape! Here are some fast and easy things you as a homeowner can do to give your home system the checkup it needs:


  • Check the controls of your heating and cooling equipment at the beginning of every new season: Examine the starting cycle to see if the system starts, operates and turns off properly
  • Check your furnace and air conditioning filters monthly and replace if dirty. A dirty filter can cause early system failure and increase energy costs.
  • Inspect the condensation drain in your air conditioner, furnace and heat pump. Make sure it is kept clean and clear as a plugged drain will cause problems (water damage, impact humidity levels).
  • Take a look at your thermostat settings. You want to maintain a comfortable temperature in the home and save energy and money while away.
  • Clean blower components. You want to avoid airflow problems.
  • Remove the housing of your dehumidifier, let it dry completely and vacuum any accessible surface
  • Take the cover of your bathroom fans off and ensure the fan blades are free of dirt 
  • Replace the batteries of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors (you want to do this twice a year)
  • Inspect all windows and doors of your home to look for any possible air leaks through cracks, gaps or joints. Caulk if needed to keep out cold drafts in the winter, heat and humidity in the summer.
  • Ensure gutters are free of debris and inspect for any damage from ice. You also want to check that your roof gutters are level.
