Spring is just around the corner in Salt Lake City, and you know what that means: spring cleaning! This season, why don’t we give special attention to the MVPs of last winter: our home’s heating and air conditioning. Spring is the perfect time of the year to make sure that these systems are in tip-top shape.
Industry specialist All Hours Plumbing and HVAC states winter greatly affects the air quality inside the house. Since we keep most of our rooms insulated from the outside cold, this also means that we’ve sealed it up, so they have very little chance to air out.
The use of wool coats and blankets, as well as the pets that stayed inside for most days, mean that lint levels in the air conditioning system are at an all-time high. If you want to get a headstart on spring cleaning, here are our suggestions on where you could begin.
Heating and Air-conditioning
Keeping your HVAC system in excellent working condition works wonders in making your home as comfortable as can be. Scrimping on professional service may be worth it if you consider the savings and the relief it will provide you in the future.
This doesn’t mean you can’t save while scheduling for contractors and furnace service. You can shave some dollars off your bill with a few simple D.I.Y. things like clearing out the air vents of debris and replacing the air filters.
The winter frost can be devastating to indoor plumbing. Pipes are especially at risk because of the freezing temperatures. Spend a portion of your time checking for leaks and other faulty parts that need replacement. If needed, you can also hire professional help.
Now that the snow is melting, it’s also a great time to clear the gutter of gunk and debris that may have accumulated. These things that clog up your gutters can eventually cause water damage and rot to your roofing, so it’s best to make sure that you clear them up.
With a little bit of elbow grease, you can get your spring cleaning done quickly so you can finally enjoy the rest of the year with very little worry.
