Spring is officially here, and soon warm weather will be at your doorstep. Many people consider “spring cleaning” to mean cleaning out the garage, putting away their winter clothes, cleaning gutters, and dusting, but did you know there are important HVAC to-dos as well? Preparing your cooling equipment for the warm season in Massachusetts should be a priority on your to-do list if you want 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
Replace Your Air Filters
Replace your air filters—because when you do, 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 from Bay State show you at your annual tune-up.
Schedule Your Tune-Up
Be sure to schedule your annual tune-up for your air conditioner. Spring is the best time, and getting yearly maintenance comes with plenty of advantages. When you schedule your tune-up with Bay State, a highly trained technician will inspect your A/C and make sure it’s operating at peak performance. With an annual tune-up, you’ll save on cooling costs and prevent midseason breakdowns.
Enroll in a Service Plan
You can’t go wrong with enrolling in a service plan. It’s a great way to save all season long. With a service plan from Bay State, you could benefit from discounts on parts and labor, annual tune-ups, and emergency service.
Upgrade Your Thermostat
Consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat if you don’t have one yet. With a programmable thermostat, you could save up to 10% on your heating and cooling bills in a year. Using one is easy. All you have to do is set it to lower or raise the temperature when you’re away or sleeping.
