Reasons to Clean Your HVAC System Before Spring

Reasons to Clean Your HVAC System Before Spring

The season of spring comes with a long to-do list. That’s right. Spring cleaning is on the horizon. Did you know that one of the first things on your spring cleaning list should be to take care of your HVAC system? While this is often an overlooked chore, making sure it’s clean and in proper condition has a number of benefits. 

Keep the Air Clean

After a few months of warm air circulation, who knows what allergens are making a residence in your HVAC system. This is especially true if there’s an animal in your home… you have the added bonus of pet dander floating around. 

HVAC systems could have mold, dust, and other allergens inside of them. While systems have a filter, they aren’t perfect and particles are still able to make their way through. This can create bacteria in the coils, which will take a deeper cleaning than dusting alone. If you’re looking for a deep clean, consider hiring a professional for the job. You can then rest easy knowing that your system has been thoroughly cleared of bacteria. 

Cut Costs 

When you take the time to clean and care for your HVAC system (even if you have to initially put some money into it), you’ll be saving. By making sure your HVAC system is in working condition, you’re improving its overall performance and controlling its energy expenditure. Issues with your HVAC system can lead to a 20-30% increase in your bill for the coming season. Why pay extra from month to month when your system can be fixed and circulate cleaner air at a more efficient rate? 

Be Prepared 

This spring is already shaping up to giving us a nice dose of warm weather, so it’s important not to forget about your HVAC system. You’ll probably want to spend your free time outside, so reward yourself by doing that after you take care of its cleaning and repairs. 

If you don’t anticipate the coming seasons, before you know it you’ll have wished you paid attention to your HVAC system that’s been overworking to cool your home in the Middle Tennessee heat. By taking care of its issues, you’ll have even more time to relax later, when you really want to.
