Prepare Your Home for Spring

Maintenance Tips to Help Prepare Your Home for Spring

We’ve made it through the long haul of cold weather and it’s finally spring! The weather will be warming up soon and while you may be ready for it, your home might not be. Take these steps to prepare your home for spring so you can relax and enjoy the season.

Clean The Air

Regardless of what your home went through in the past year, one thing is certain – it could definitely use a thorough deep cleaning. Wipe down all flat surfaces, clean the floors, and declutter throughout the house. To ensure good air quality, dust in hard to reach places including door frames, window sills, cabinets, and air vents. 

Another important step in cleaning your home and ensuring good indoor air quality is to clean or replace your air filter in your HVAC system. When your filter is clean you’ll experience better air flow, air quality, and comfort. 

If you’re looking to improve your home’s air quality in a big way, think about investing in an air purification system from Swinson Air Conditioning. Air purification systems can eliminate up to 99.9% of dust, mold, viruses, and other allergens from the air and surfaces of your home. You’ll breathe cleaner, healthier air than ever before.

Check Home’s Exterior

Over time, elements on the outside of your home will begin to deteriorate due to weather conditions and regular wear and tear. Because of this, it’s important you regularly check the outside of your home for anything that needs to be repaired or replaced. Ensure there is no roof damage and check doors and windows for proper insulation. If there are areas where water is leaking into your home, it can damage your foundational aspects and lessen the value of your home.

While you’re outside, head over to your outdoor air conditioning unit and ensure it’s free of any debris. Clear the area around the unit and if you notice any mold, excess moisture or unusually high energy bills, call the professionals at Swinson Air Conditioning to diagnose any technical issues.

Replace the Old

Time to get out with the old and in with the new! If you have burned out lightbulbs, a moldy showerhead, or cracked windows, now would be a great time to replace them. Also, if your HVAC system is over 10 years old or in need of constant repairs, it’s a good idea to replace it as well. Newer systems are much more energy efficient and can save you money while creating a more comfortable home. Plus, new systems  last longer with regular preventative maintenance. A new system from Swinson AIr Conditioning could even last 15 years or more with proper care!

Sign Up for Preventative Maintenance

Heating and cooling systems have a way of breaking down when the weather is at its worst, usually during a sizzling summer heat wave. Regular preventative maintenance can stop the need for costly repairs by keeping your system running smoothly throughout every season. That way, you won’t be left without air conditioning when you need it most. On top of this, regular maintenance also maximizes the life expectancy of your comfort system.
