4 Tips to Prepare your HVAC for Summer Months

Are you dreading the hot Maryland summer? Are you worried about another HVAC malfunction like last summer? Well, you are in the right spot.

Here are four quick tips to ensure your HVAC is tuned up and ready to keep you soothed and cooled from that blazing summer heat!

Get your HVAC Tuned Up

Summer is creeping in around the corner, so the time is NOW! Have your inspector check and troubleshoot your system to ensure your air conditioning system is ready for efficient use this summer.

Reset your Thermostat Settings

The kids are home from school, which could mean more traffic in and out of the house this summer, vacations, and later wake-up and bedtimes. Be sure to adjust your thermostat to these summer festivities. You could also consider switching to a wifi thermostat to save money and energy on cooling while you are away on vacation.

Improve Air Flow

Check and change your air filters frequently! Your air filter can fill up with debris much faster during the summer than any other season because it runs more often. Clean your exterior air conditioner because lawn maintenance and debris can clog up the fins that allow the heat to leave the system.

Open and Uncover All Your Indoor Vents

The vents in your house should be opened, even in unoccupied rooms. This allows for even, proper airflow throughout all areas of the house!
