Why You Should Give Your HVAC System A Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning your home is important to many homeowners. But do you have a spring cleaning for your HVAC system? Read below about how and when you should call The Chill Brothers to come do a tune up!

Why Spring Cleaning is Important

We use spring cleaning to catch up on home maintenance habits that fell off during the colder months and winter holidays. Springtime, and it’s warmer weather, pushes people back into cleaning and clearing their yards and homes. With rising temperatures, your AC is guaranteed to be running non-stop to keep you and your family cool. It’s important for your HVAC system to be ready and at peak performance.

When to Do Spring Cleaning for Your HVAC system

While some homeowners start as early as February, many don’t schedule their maintenance check up until March. As warm weather roles in, homeowners can feel and smell the difference in the air when their HVAC system needs some TLC.

Benefits of Spring Cleaning

There’s a clear physical benefit to spring cleaning. According to Dr. Adrian Cotton of Loma Linda University Health, “Dust, mold, mildew, pet dander, and other things like this can be immune system triggers for people prone to allergies. When your house isn’t clean, it can gather pollutants — especially during the winter months.”*

What Does HVAC Tune-Up Include?

An HVAC tune-up aims to act preemptively against failures rather than wait until a system fails. A standard HVAC tune-up includes inspection, cleaning, and service. The inclusion of repairs depends on any problems detected during the inspection process.

An HVAC technician starts with a tune-up inspection. Typically, technicians will tune-up both the air conditioner and the furnace simultaneously. The tech is looking for signs of normal wear and tear during inspections. This includes checking the air conditioner drain pan, maintaining adequate refrigerant levels, examining the furnace compressor and motor, and ensuring all other parts are in good working order.

The cleaning step of the HVAC tune-up is necessary on an occasional basis. That makes it a perfect fit for your easy spring cleaning process. Even customers who change their filters regularly require at least an annual deep cleaning of these components. This regular cleaning will also maintain the equipment for a more extended period, saving you money and ensuring adequate performance year-round.

The final step in an HVAC tune-up is servicing. Air-conditioning and furnace maintenance service can detect problems in the air conditioning or heating system that a technician can address. Servicing the equipment may involve replacing worn parts that are on their way to breaking, which prevents severe damage or emergency service later. Your servicer may change out expendable parts like fan blades to ensure the efficient operation of your HVAC system.

How Much Does an HVAC Tune-Up Cost?

The Chill Brothers uniquely offer the Chill Maintenance Plan to help you keep your HVAC system in tip top shape. With the Chill Maintenance Plan you will receive an annual 21-point heating and cooling tune-up for only $19.95/ month and $9.95/month for additional units at the same location.

Considering that the average cost of an HVAC repair (usually avoidable through proper maintenance) runs up to $1,000 the benefits of a supercharged spring cleaning paired with an HVAC tune-up just makes sense.
