Ensure Your HVAC System is Ready for Spring with JP Heating & Air Conditioning in Kalamazoo
With the weather getting warmer and winter on its way out, it’s the perfect time to go through your springtime HVAC checklist. It’s a great time because, springtime means you are more than likely done running your furnace and it’s not yet warm enough to warrant turning on your air conditioning. By properly maintaining your HVAC system throughout the year, you keep it running efficiently and increase its lifespan.
Replace your air filter. While you should replace your air filter more often than just spring, it should definitely be a part of your springtime checklist. Always change your air filter as least as often as the manufacturer suggests, and more often if you have pets.
Check to see if it’s operating properly. Turn on your unit to make sure it’s heating or cooling your home according to your thermostat settings and is not making irregular sounds or emitting any smells.
Clean your outside units. Remove any leaves, branches, dirt, and other debris from your outdoor unit in order to increase efficiency and airflow into your home.

Check refrigerant levels. It’s important to maintain the refrigerant levels of your HVAC system to keep it running effectively and efficiently and before air conditioning is needed is the perfect time to have them checked.
Inspect your electrical connections. While inspecting all electrical connections and making sure they’re undamaged should be left to the professionals, you can visually inspect the outdoor electrical components coming from your home.
Clean your indoor components. Your indoor HVAC components, like blower fans and coils, should be cleaned and lubricated. This will help your system to run at its highest efficiency while increasing its life.
