Now that winter is over in Horizon City, TX, you need to take care of your HVAC system. Biannual maintenance keeps the system ready for all kinds of weather. Here are some reasons your system will need maintenance this spring to prepare for the heat of summer.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
In winter, your home may feel stuffy. Now that spring is here, it’s time to open your windows and let in the fresh air. Also, it’s time to change your air filters.
Maintenance not only increases the system’s efficiency but also improves indoor air quality. Through system maintenance, you can reduce contaminants such as dust mites and debris. A thorough cleaning removes any allergen particles that may have built up inside the system, so you can enjoy clean indoor air.
Prevent Breakdown Emergencies
A system breakdown in the summer heat could turn into a nightmare. Scheduling maintenance with a skilled contractor minimizes the possibility of failures and costly maintenance later in the year.
During spring maintenance tune-ups, an HVAC technician inspects all the system’s components and lubricates moving parts. The technician can identify possible issues and fix them before they turn to a summer emergency.
Check the Refrigerant Level
A professional technician will check to confirm that the system has the right amount of refrigerant. If the refrigerant level is low, the system cannot operate optimally. If this is the case, the technician will test for leaks and repair them.
Check the Condensate Drain
Cleaning the condensate drain is a part of maintaining your system. If there are clogs in the drain channel, your unit will not remove humidity effectively. The clogging can lead to excess moisture levels that pose a health risk inside your home.
