As a Chino Hills, CA, resident, you know that summers can easily have weather that’s well into the 90s in June, July and August. During this time, just about everyone will have their HVAC systems running so that they can beat the heat. For optimal summer performance, it’s a good idea to schedule HVAC maintenance in the spring.
Reduce the Incidence of Allergens
In the spring and summer, tree and grass pollen counts tend to skyrocket, which is tough on anyone with seasonal allergies. While you can’t cut allergens like dust, dander or pollen out of the air on the outside, you can control how much they work their way into your home. Simply cleaning or changing the filter in the spring will prevent any of these allergens from working their way inside.
Avoid Expensive HVAC Faults
A lot can happen to an HVAC system over the winter, which is why having it serviced and maintained by a professional in the spring is something you shouldn’t avoid. During a preventive maintenance session, a comfort advisor will complete several activities that include:
- General operations assessments.
- Lubrication of components.
- Fan assessments.
- Filter replacements.
- Coil cleaning.
- Condensate drain examinations.
Each of these can help you prevent issues in the summer. Also, when a comfort advisor is performing these, they can also eyeball the system to see if there are issues to fix before they become major problems.
Cut Your Energy Bill
Things like filter replacements and parts maintenance help the HVAC system cool the home more efficiently. Since the motor won’t have to work harder to push air, you’ll see a dip in energy costs when you’re using your HVAC system.
