We are so happy that spring is here and we get to enjoy all of the things it brings with it! Warm weather, flowers, baby animals! But as the weather warms up, we come closer and closer to turning on the AC for those days where it gets just a bit too warm inside! Here’s some steps you can take to assure your AC unit is ready for those warmer spring days and the summer heat that follows.
Have your A/C unit checked every 6 months by Miller’s Services
Spring is a great time to schedule a spring tune-up for your HVAC system and Miller’s is here to help! Making sure to get regular maintenance on your system will keep it from breaking down when you really need it. Having maintenance done can also extend the life of your HVAC system. When it comes time to turn the system on, you will be ready to go knowing it has been checked over by a professional.
Have your ducts cleaned
When your air conditioning starts running, it’s going to push all of the dust and debris that have settled in your ducts out into your home. Having your ducts cleaned prevents this dusty cloud from ruining your cool air and making your home dirty and causing problems with your indoor air quality.
Turn your unit on early
Turning the unit on and testing it for a couple of hours before temperatures are expected to hit the high numbers gives you the opportunity to fix any problems that may arise. It will put your mind at ease knowing that your system is properly functioning and you don’t have to sit in the heat, waiting for repairs.
Upgrade to a Programmable Thermostat
Having a programmable thermostat will help cut back on your electricity bill by preventing your unit from running too much. You can set a schedule for when you are home and when you are away so that your system is not cooling an empty home. Running the system too much can cause it to break down faster than it normally would. Programmable thermostats are better at maintaining your homes temperatures without constantly running your system.
Following these steps will help make sure that your HVAC system is running its best when you need it the most! For any of your HVAC needs contact Miller’s at (804) 758-4314 or check our website for our full list of services.
