The sun is out, the flowers are blooming, and spring is in the air in Evans, Georgia. Before the warm weather prompts you to turn on your air conditioner for the season, take a few important steps to prepare your HVAC system. From replacing the air filter to scheduling a tuneup, try these four ways to get your air conditioner ready for spring.

Replace the Air Filter

Spring brings fresh air, and replacing your HVAC system’s air filter is a great way to welcome clean air into your home. At Doc Savage Heating and Air Conditioning, we recommend replacing the air filter at least every 90 days. As the weather warms up and peak air conditioning season arrives, check the filter every 30 days, and change if needed, to keep the air fresh.

Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat

Welcome the new season with a smart thermostat like the Trane ComfortLink II XL1050. This smart device does much more than manage the temperature in your home. It connects to your home’s Wi-Fi system so you can use your smartphone to adjust the temperature and save energy from anywhere. Smart thermostats can also control indoor air quality components and remind you to replace the air filter for optimal comfort.

Check the Outdoor Unit

Before you turn on your air conditioner for the cooling season, check the outdoor unit. Remove any branches or leaves that have accumulated on top of the unit and tidy up any grass or shrubs that surround the system. Removing obstructions allows for seamless airflow and can boost your air conditioner’s performance.

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Spring is the ideal time to schedule annual maintenance for your air conditioner. During a tuneup, our technicians will inspect your air conditioner, recalibrate the system, and note any necessary repairs. You can count on us to get your cooling system up to speed for the spring and keep it running smoothly all summer long.
