Spring NH Homeowner Maintenance To-Do List
It’s springtime in New Hampshire, and soon warmer weather will be here for us to enjoy. Most people think spring home to-do lists consist of regular cleaning and putting away winter items, but did you know that your HVAC system comes with its own list? That’s right. Getting your heating equipment prepped and ready to be turned down for the warm season should be a priority on your spring checklist to keep it operating at its peak efficiency. Prepare your home and family for a great spring and summer this year by knocking these maintenance chores off your to-do list.
Your HVAC To-Do List
Get Your Spring Fill:
Never let your heating oil tank sit empty or on low during warm weather. Be sure to get your tank filled for spring and summer. An empty or low tank will collect internal condensation which can cause your tank to rust from the inside out, which in turn can lead to leaks. Leaks are dangerous to your home and environment, and very costly to clean up.
Replace Your Air Filters:
When you replace your air filters, you’ll save on energy costs and you’ll have better indoor air quality. Over time, air filters accumulate dirt, and all that dirt makes your HVAC system work harder than it has to in order to keep your home comfortable. If you don’t know how to change your air filters, you can have your local HVAC technician to show you at your annual tune-up.
Schedule Your Tune-Up:
Be sure to schedule your annual tune-up for your air conditioner. The start of warm weather or right before the heat gets here is the best time to get your annual tune-up. When you schedule your tune-up with your service company, a highly trained technician will inspect your A/C to make sure it’s operating at peak performance. This year, you can save on annual operating costs by maximizing your energy efficiency with an annual tune-up.
Enroll in a Service Plan:
If you’re looking for ways to save on your HVAC home comfort budget, you can’t go wrong with enrolling in a service plan. A service plan is an excellent way to save all season long, benefit from discounts on parts and labor, annual tune-ups, and emergency service.
