Tips to Prepare Your Home for Spring

HVAC | 0 comments

Spring is officially here in Central Ohio, and many families are looking forward to all of the exciting opportunities that summer brings. We at Lebanon Heating & Cooling want to help you be prepared for your summer plans! That’s why our team put together some tips on preparing your home for spring this year. We know that allergens are a huge concern during the spring and summer, which is why our tips for today are centered around keeping them at bay.

Keep Those Allergens Away!

With spring comes a multitude of annoying allergies. If your family or your guests have hayfever, they will be especially susceptible to any allergens in your home. Because winter is the prime time for dirt, dust, and pet fur to build up on the surfaces in your home, consider paying extra attention to these specific areas:

Floor Coverings  

Carpets and rugs are notorious for collecting dust, dirt, hair, and fur during the stuffy winter months, so make sure to give them a nice deep cleaning this spring to eliminate any allergens.

Air Filters

As professionals, we suggest that you replace your HVAC systems’ air filters at least once bi-monthly, with a goal of once a month, depending on how bad they get. You can easily ensure that the air circulating in your home is allergen free by replacing your air filter today!

Ceiling Fans 

There’s a good chance that a troublesome layer of dust has built up on the top surface of the blades during the winter. So before turning them on in the spring or summer, pull out a duster and wipe the grime off, being careful to spread as little dust as possible.

Don’t forget A/C maintenance

Before turning on your air conditioner this summer, make sure to clear any debris, shrubs, or furniture away from your outdoor AC unit. This will ensure that it doesn’t overheat and create problems throughout the HVAC system. For optimal use of your unit and to save you on energy costs and ensure the unit runs all summer, now is the time to schedule your A/C tune up. Seasonal maintenance is an investment that always pays off.
