Despite the recent snow storm, it is officially Spring. While you start the rest of your Spring cleaning chores, don’t forget about your HVAC unit. There are some items to add to your checklist that can improve energy efficiency as well as the quality of air in your home.
Clean Air Ducts, Vents, & Filters
Dust and debris in your home eventually gets sucked into the ventilation and may be blown around your home. After a long winter with the windows closed, you can imagine how much buildup there might be. Get rid of those contaminants for cleaner air.
Check for Mold or Extreme Humidity Levels
It can’t be said enough how dangerous it can be to live with mold in your home, and if left untreated can be spread by your HVAC. If you’re suspicious, be sure to call a professional for mold removal. Likewise, air that is too dry or has too much moisture can be detrimental to your health.
Clean Both the Indoor & Outdoor Units
To get the most out of your HVAC unit, you should make sure it is getting the proper airflow. Debris around the air handler or condenser can restrict performance and you may not notice. Be sure to check these areas before turning on your air conditioner for the season.

The best way to ensure optimal performance is to leave it to the professionals. Experienced technicians, like those at Borden Heating & Cooling, will make sure all components are cleaned and operating well to give your family the best HVAC service possible.
