As a homeowner, spring can usually bring you a sigh of relief. The cold weather is on its way out taking the snow with it. You won’t have to keep the heat on around-the-clock and may even start to crack a window or two.
Besides starting on the spring cleaning, garden preparations and grilling fantasies, what else should you be doing to make sure your home is ready for spring?
Check Your Thermostat
There may still be the odd night that you’ll turn the heat on, but with the warmer weather making a comeback, your thermostat needs to be adjusted. Make sure you check the settings and change them based on what your current needs are. Also, if your thermostat is outdated and you’re not sure it’s doing the job, consider installing a new smart option with comfort controls.
Schedule Air Conditioning Maintenance
Although it can still be hard to believe, the hot, humid weather will be here before you know it. To make sure you’re ready, schedule maintenance for your air conditioner early. By booking an appointment now, you’ll have service quickly and may even be able to save a bit.
As soon as the scorching weather appears, you’ll be cool and comfortable with the peace of mind that your air conditioner will make it through the summer.
Focus on IAQ
With air conditioner maintenance, your air filter will be cleaned or replaced helping keep your home’s air clean. However, when you open the windows to let fresh air in during those pleasant spring days, you may also be letting in pollen.
Consider installing an air purification or filtration system to keep any pollutants, allergens or contaminants from circulating throughout your home. You’ll be able to breathe easier this spring and throughout the rest of the year. If you or someone in your family is particularly sensitive to allergens and other pollutants, mechanical ventilation can be a great way to get fresh air in to further improve your home’s indoor air quality.
