HVAC Systems and Summer Home Maintenance

May 8, 2022

Home maintenance is a year-round job, and your HVAC system is no exception! Here are a few things to remember this summer when it comes to HVAC upkeep.

Clean Your Air Filters

As spring draws to a close and summer approaches, allergy season finally goes with it– but even after nature has stopped filling the air with a snowstorm of pollen, allergens still remain. It’s a good idea to clean your air filters every month or so, both to keep the air you breathe as clean as possible and to reduce the amount of energy your HVAC unit uses. After long months of keeping your home shut up tight followed by a season of pollen and other airborne allergens, cleaning or replacing your air filters is more important than ever.

Adjust Your Thermostat Settings

Chances are, your schedule changes with the season, especially if you work in the school system or have young children. Make sure you’re adjusting your thermostat settings to reflect your new daily routines, and remember to account for vacations or day trips. You don’t want your A/C to be running full blast when you’re three hundred miles away enjoying the ocean breeze! Minimizing the use of your HVAC unit also helps it last longer, saving you money both on your monthly energy bills and in the long run.

Check Your Outdoor Unit

Make sure you keep the area surrounding your outdoor HVAC unit clear of vegetation and clutter. There should be about two feet of space between the unit and any plants, so make sure you’re taking care with the weeding! Every time you do any yard work, check up on the unit and carefully clear away any grass clippings, fallen leaves, and other detritus. You don’t want to block the airflow that allows excess heat to leave the unit, especially when temperatures are sky high.

Schedule an HVAC Checkup

While not every part of HVAC system maintenance necessitates professional help, there are many routine issues that are better handled by experts. Even when there’s no obvious problem with your unit, it’s a good idea to have the system inspected regularly to avoid costly and inconvenient breakdowns in the future. At Will Air, we offer affordable Planned Maintenance Contracts to make the process easier.

"Service tech was very polite and early. Fixed AC unit and explained what he did and showed the bad part that was replaced. Reasonable price for a short notice call."

Our home has dual HVAC units. The electric-only unit in our attic has given us issues for years. Rob Will of Will Air inexpensively serviced the unit and babied it along so that we were able to get as much life out of it as possible. Once it was no longer economically smart to keep repairing the unit, Rob recommended a new unit that was affordable, energy efficient and more properly sized for our square footage. The new unit works like a charm and has not needed any service since installation. Rob and his staff show up quickly, and stay until the job is done. Sherry is always friendly and pleasant on the phones and is a pleasure to work with. I will continue to use Will Air for all of my HVAC needs and will recommend them to anyone who needs a trusted HVAC repair company.
