Heating and Air in Charlotte, NC: Four Tips To Keep Your HVAC Unit Running Smoothly This Spring

January 30, 2016by Sophie The Dog

It’s hard to believe that spring is just around the corner. Now is the time to contact your favorite experts on HVAC in Charlotte, NC, to conduct a check up on your home’s air conditioner. No one wants a surprise when flipping on the AC switch, and the last thing you want is to spend the rest of spring all the way to summer without decent air conditioning.

Here are four of the top ways to prepare your Charlotte AC for spring:

  1. Replace the filters – While filters are the easiest part of maintaining your heating and cooling system, they are often forgotten and neglected. Start fresh with new filters and make it a routine to regularly check filters. Even reusable filters need a good rinse. If you are not sure how often to change filters, schedule a monthly filter check and then mark your calendar accordingly.
  1. System Maintenance – Preventative maintenance is the most efficient way to ensure that your AC stays working properly. Heating and air companies in Charlotte, NC, such as Patterson Heating and Air, can come in and check your unit to make sure there are no issues. They will look for leaks, blockages and any other possible red flags. Then they will maintain the unit by cleaning the exterior, lubricating moving parts, and tuning it up. This maintenance will allow the system to run more efficiently and help prevent unexpected emergencies.
  1. Check your vents – Check to make sure there is nothing blocking the vents in your home. Furniture, large potted plants, and boxes are just a few of the possible ways that can prevent a room from achieving a comfortable temperature.
  1. Replace the thermostat – Odds are you have never replaced your thermostat. Your thermostat is working year round, but often not maintained or replaced. A good working thermostat will signal the right information to your HVAC unit and provide your home with comfortable air. A malfunctioning thermostat can cause your energy bills to run high. This could also create uneven temperatures or hot spots in your home. Replacing your thermostat will prevent these issues.
