8 Easy Tips for Spring Cleaning
OK, homeowners. Spring has sprung and the time to get your home in tip-top shape has arrived. From more efficient cooling systems to fresher indoor air, we’ve got the advice you need to boost your home comfort.
- Schedule spring AC maintenance.
Now is the perfect time to give the pros at Miller’s a call for your annual spring AC maintenance. Schedule today and one of our certified techs will show up at your door and complete a thorough check of your entire cooling system. We’ll change filters, clean coils, check your refrigerant and more. Plus, if we notice any red flags, we’ll provide the fine tuning your system needs so you’ll be all set when those steamy temperatures hit.
2. Change your thermostat batteries.
Believe it or not, there are times when your heating or cooling system is working just fine, but it’s your thermostat that’s causing issues. Replace old batteries with fresh ones prior to the summer season to prevent any issues.
3. Add an indoor air quality system to your home.
Do you have family members who suffer from allergies or asthma? Kick those sniffles and respiratory issues to the curb with the installation of a new IAQ system. We offer professional installation and replacement of air purifiers, air cleaners and UV light filtration systems. These systems can kill mold, zap viruses and ensure you’re breathing the freshest air possible.
4. Clean those return air vents.
Next time you find yourself vacuuming, don’t neglect your return air vents. Vents can easily accumulate dust, pet hair and dirt. You don’t want to breathe in that gunk, so this extra step is well worth it!
5. Check the outdoor AC unit.
Throughout the winter, your outdoor AC compressor can get covered in debris. Do a careful check of the unit and remove any obstructions, plants, weeds or branches that might be compromising its functionality.
6. Unclutter your home.
This is spring cleaning at its best! Throw out bags of clothing, old books, outdated toys or anything else that could be accumulating dust or blocking the vents where fresh air is entering. Even better, hold a garage sale and make some money off of your unwanted belongings!
7. Check in on that ductwork.
Leaks or holes in your ductwork will cause your HVAC system to work inefficiently, which means your energy bills will skyrocket. If you have concerns that something might be wrong with your duct system or you find your monthly utility bill climbing, call us for a quick check.
8. Tighten electrical components.
Loose electrical components can be a safety hazard. You should tighten any loose connections you notice. Issues? Give one or our electricians a call and we’d be happy to help.
