Spring is officially here! It's that wonderful time of year when it's important to start thinking about switching over from heating to cooling. If you're looking for an HVAC contractor near Minnetrista, you've come to the right place. Abel Heating & Cooling has a number of HVAC contractors ready to help you make the switch.
Check Heating & Cooling Units
As soon as it is around 70 degrees for a couple of days, turn on your cooling system. Does it kick on and work properly? If not, call an HVAC contractor right away. You don't want to wait until it's an emergency to have a professional look at the unit. Even if your unit does seem to be working properly, it may be wise to have an expert look at it if it's been a couple of years since you last had it inspected.
Check & Replace Filters
Did you take the time to replace your filters at the end of the summer? If not, make sure that you replace them before you use your cooling unit for the first time. A clean filter will not only help you keep your air cleaner, but it also helps your equipment function more efficiently. An HVAC contractor will be able to help you determine which filter you need and help you replace it.
Check Windows & Joints
We advise that you take some time to check your windows on your own time. Find out if they open and close properly. Are they sealing tightly? If not, check the weather stripping, as it may be time to change it. Caulk around your windows, if necessary. This will help keep the cool air where it belongs—inside. Also, visually inspect your screens. Are they all intact? If there are holes or rips, take this time to replace or repair your screens.
