Spring is Here! 5 Tips for Getting Your HVAC System Ready!

Preparing your system now can save you a significant amount of money in the summer.  All Service Heating & Air is excited to let you know the Top 5 Ways you can prepare for this Texas heat!

 1 – Check your Air Filters

Having clean air filters is imperative to having your HVAC system working effectively and efficiently.  The filters protect your equipment from the buildup of dust and debris as well as help the quality of air your breathing.  HVAC filters should be checked every month to see if they are dirty and changed at least every 3 months.

2 – Schedule Air Conditioning Maintenance   

Preventative maintenance is the only way to make certain that your system operates at its best when you need it the most.  Identifying problems beforehand can ensure this will happen.  A well maintained system will last longer and need fewer repairs.  It will also save you money on your electric bills.  Being a part of our Comfort Club, you get other benefits as well.  You will receive a 20% discount on repairs and parts and 10% off any equipment you would need to purchase.

 3 – Checking Insulation and Air Ducts

Revamping your insulation can save you a ton of money in the summer.  Why spend a small fortune to cool your home when half of the energy is wasted?  Leaks in your systems air ducts and problems with insulation will waste so much energy and that is just money flying out the door.  Sealing and insulating the ductwork in your home will help with performance of your HVAC system and lower your energy bills.

4 – Installing a Programmable Thermostat

Here in Texas it gets HOT in the summer.  No one wants to come to a hot and humid house so it is tempting to leave your system running all day so this doesn’t happen to you. However, this just isn’t really cost effective.  Installing a programmable thermostat is our solution to this problem.  Being able to program your thermostat to meet your comfort needs.  Also, cooling your home down progressively will not make your system work as hard.  Some models even let you access the thermostat remotely from your phone or computer!

5 – Great time to upgrade your HVAC system

The life expectancy of an HVAC system in Texas is about 10-15 years.  If you know that your system is reaching the end of its life, the spring time is the perfect time to think about upgrading!  Modern systems are much more energy efficient and they perform better, too.  Call All Service Heating and Air today and we would be more than happy to send our Comfort Consultant to your home for a free quote on designing a system that meets your family’s needs!
