As the weather starts to heat up and the cold ocean water meets the warm desert wind, the usual gray morning fog is starting to roll in. This is a great reminder that it’s time to get your air conditioning system ready to take on the hot summer days. When you perform annual maintenance tasks, you can help to ensure that your indoor air quality is enhanced.
Replace That Old Air Filter
Your cooling system has at least one air filter that works to remove unwanted airborne particles from the air inside of your home. As your filter gets worn out, it will need to be replaced. When you’re performing maintenance on your cooling system, it’s best to put in a fresh air filter. This way, you can trap all those unwanted particles and get them out of the air that your family is breathing while relaxing at home.
Schedule Professional Maintenance
Springtime is the perfect time to get your cooling system professionally serviced by Crocker Refrigeration Heating & Air in Santa Barbara, CA. You can beat the summertime repair rush and ensure that your cooling system is working optimally throughout the summer season. Additionally, when your system is serviced, it gets a deep cleaning that helps to remove unwanted airborne particles that can reduce your indoor air quality.
Clean Your Vents and Registers
Each room of your home should have a vent and register. One is for supplying cooled fresh air into the room, and the other vent is for removing warm, humid air. Over time, airborne particles will get picked up by the air and be pulled in and out of the vent. Many times, these particles will get stuck on the grates for your vents and registers. In fact, you’ll likely be able to see a buildup of debris. You should pop each vent and register out to give it a good cleaning. This will help to reduce the amount of dust and debris inside of your home and increase the airflow for all of your vents and registers.
Every three springs, you should invest in a professional duct cleaning service. With specialized equipment, excess dirt and debris that is stuck inside of your ducting can be cleared. This will help to enhance the flow of air throughout your ventilation system and remove harmful airborne particles so they don’t keep recirculating throughout the rooms of your home.
Taking the time to prep your home cooling system for its long summer run is a necessity. Being able to enhance your indoor air quality while doing so is a great benefit that you and the whole family will enjoy.
