With spring in full swing, now is a great time to get your house cleaned and ready for the warmer weather ahead. One part of your Clinton home that you shouldn’t overlook is your HVAC system.
You should be taking care to clean your HVAC system throughout the year, not just in the spring. To help you keep your HVAC unit as clean as possible in-between maintenance visits, we at Logan's Heating & Cooling offer these HVAC cleaning tips.
Check the Intakes
To operate efficiently, your HVAC system needs to be able to take in an adequate volume of air. If your unit is in an open area such as a basement, this probably isn’t much of an issue. If your system is enclosed in a utility closet, though, it’s crucial that you take time to clean the inlets of the closet to keep air flowing.
Another part of cleaning the intake is ensuring you change the air filter on a regular basis. A dust-clogged filter will force your unit to work harder and result in dust-filled air that leaves your home feeling dirtier. It’s recommended that you change your air filter at least once a month.
Clean the Lines
Another important step in cleaning your HVAC system is to clean the condensate drain pipe. This is the pipe that removes condensed humidity from your house and drips outside throughout the summer.
If there are minerals in the water, they can build up deposits in the condensate drain pipe, leading to an overflow of the condensate drain pan. Mix one part bleach to four parts water, and then pour this mixture down the condensate drain pipe to remove these deposits.
