Spring is finally here. Before you know it, children will spend their days at home on summer break. You can prepare your Riverside, California, home now for summer vacation by completing these important HVAC tasks.
Change Your Air Filter
It’s important to change your air filter regularly. In fact, experts often recommend that you change your air filter every 90 days. But it may be necessary to change it more often in homes that have pets or residents with allergies.
Over time, your air filter collects dust and other debris that can decrease your home’s air quality and prevent your HVAC unit from working efficiently. Change your air filter before the busy summer season begins. As a result, you’ll also help to lower your cooling costs.
Schedule an AC Tune-Up
As soon as spring turns into summer, the temperatures will rise. You’ll want to make sure your family stays cool. An AC tune-up is the best way to increase the efficiency of your air conditioner . Additionally, an AC tune-up can help your unit cool the house while also cutting cooling costs. We will inspect the different components of your unit. As a result, we’ll make sure they’re safe and ready for regular summertime use.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
The thermostat often has a central location that encourages the home’s residents, including the children, to adjust the temperature to their preferences. Unfortunately, children don’t always understand the implications of adjusting the thermostat.
A programmable thermostat will allow you to create a pre-set schedule based on everyone’s daily tasks. Additionally, smart thermostats allow you to access and adjust your thermostat right from your smartphone. Therefore, you can adjust your home’s temperature from anywhere.
Now’s the time to prepare your HVAC unit for the upcoming summer vacation.
