spring-hvac-unitSpring cleaning in your home takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to air conditioners and other heating and cooling components. It's time for spring HVAC maintenance.

It’s a necessity for optimal performance, lower monthly energy bills, a comfortable family, better indoor air quality, less allergies, and more. Here’s a list of basic reasons why you should schedule a spring maintenance visit with Warner Service in Frederick, Maryland, for your home:

The timing is finally right. You should call an experienced, licensed air conditioning technician, like those at Warner Service, to perform HVAC maintenance twice per year. This is usually done before the fall and before the summer, just in time for severe weather changes.

Another great reason that falls under timing is optimal weather. If you’re doing outdoor maintenance on your heating and cooling unit, the weather is mild with low humidity levels. This makes working outside more enjoyable.

Your home is preparing for peak performance during the hot weather. Routine residential HVAC maintenance by Warner Service of Frederick, Maryland, includes a look at the following components to prepare your heating and cooling system for the weather ahead:

  • Air conditioners
  • Air ducts
  • Boilers
  • Carbon monoxide detectors
  • Electronic air cleaners
  • Furnaces
  • Heat pumps and systems (gas or oil)
  • High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) systems
  • Humidifiers
  • Radiators
  • Thermostats
  • UV (ultraviolet) light systems
  • Ventilators

Our skilled professionals perform quality inspections to test, calibrate, measure, clean, and adjust any necessary components in these appliances to make sure your home is kept safe and efficient through the summer.

Allergies are popping up. According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, pollen season begins as early as February and lasts through October. In Maryland, we’re right in the thick of it. If you and your family are already sneezing, feeling stuffy, and wiping away watery eyes, it’s time to do something.

For simple do-it-yourself solutions, check out the following top HVAC system tips from our local experts:

  • To remove insects and mold from the basement, fix any leaks in the foundation and pipes, especially near the central HVAC unit.
  • Turn on an exhaust fan in the bathroom when showering to keep air circulating and avoid mold.
  • Avoid using whole-home air fresheners, as aerosol makes its way into the ventilation system and causes allergies.
