How to Get Your HVAC System Ready for Spring

Written by: Metro Air

 

Spring is here! When it comes to your HVAC equipment, there are some specific things you can do to help your system prepare for the change of season. Here are some of our top tips.

Tip #1: Remove debris.
Winter weather means lots of rain, snow, and wind. This can cause build up to occur around the outside unit and if it builds up for long periods of time, it could restrict airflow and cause problems. If air isn’t flowing properly, it causes the machine to work a lot harder and this could lead to a spike in utility bills.

Tip #2: Clean your filter.
It’s helpful to clean or change your air filter every other month. Pet dander, dust, and other debris accumulates inside the filter and this could cause allergies and reduce your indoor air quality.

Tip #3: Upgrade your thermostat.
Did you know that programmable thermostats will save you money and help better regulate air flow throughout the day and night? Programmable thermostats allow you to set whatever temperature is comfortable, based on your specific schedule. You won’t need to heat or cool an empty home if you’re not there, so program the thermostat to turn off or down while you’re away. This translates to lower energy bills and more money in your pocket at the end of the month.

Tip #4: Schedule a preventative maintenance appointment.
Spring brings longer days, sunnier weather, and maybe even some warmth! The change to springtime weather is the perfect time to schedule your preventative maintenance appointment with Metro Air Heating & Cooling. Our experienced HVAC technicians will clean filters, check to make sure all the components inside the machine are working well, and we’ll talk to you about any potential issues we find that need to be fixed. Nobody likes having their HVAC system break down unexpectedly. Preventative maintenance appointments can help eliminate this problem!

Treat your heating and cooling system well this spring. With some care and attention to detail, your system will work well throughout the spring and into the summer weather. Contact us today for information on our various preventative maintenance packages, or if you need a completely new system, we can help with that too. We look forward to serving you.

3 Indoor Air Quality Solutions for Spring

Written by: Metro Air

Spring officially begins this month and that means allergy season will likely soon make its appearance, too. Once springtime arrives, it is a great time to evaluate your indoor air quality and determine if you can make sure you’re breathing the best air possible. We are proud to provide a variety of indoor air quality solutions that will help bolster your health and keep you comfortable all year long.

#1: Air purifiers:
Installing a quality air exchanging system for your home will clean the air in your home, giving you fresh and filtered air every day. These systems are made with revolutionary technology that help moderate humidity and rid the air of harmful pollutants. They also save energy in each season of the year to help with your utility bill. We offer several top-notch exchanger systems that will work in tandem with your HVAC system.

#2: Carbon monoxide detector:
Carbon monoxide can have deadly consequences if it is breathed in. It’s odorless and colorless, so there is no way to know if it is in your home. That’s why having a quality carbon monoxide alarm is critical!  New carbon monoxide detectors have technology that sense and record carbon monoxide levels on a timer, so you can be sure that there is no carbon monoxide present in your home.

#3: New filters:
Dirty air filters contribute to hazardous air quality, so if you haven’t cleaned the filters in your HVAC system recently, chances are, it’s full of dust and debris. Make sure that you routinely clean your filters, every 1-2 months. This will ensure that dust and debris particles aren’t recycled and sent back into the air. We sell a variety of air filter replacements on our website for your convenience, so don’t delay in ordering and replacing them.

If you are making your spring cleaning to-do list, don’t forget about your indoor air quality. The air you breathe matters and clean air is important. Contact us today for information on indoor air quality and we’ll help you find the best solution for your home.
