Apr 30, 2021 | HVAC | 0 comments

After the cold winter months, lots of Central Ohio homeowners are excited to get in some spring cleaning. To help you prepare your home for the warm weather, we at Kettering-Oakwood Heating & Air put together some helpful tips to prepare your home for spring! 

  1. Clear Out Your Gutters

Gutters are notorious for collecting crazy amounts of sticks and leaves during the fall and winter months. And during the cold weather it’s harder to get up on a ladder to do the work. However, spring is the perfect time to clear debris out and make those spring showers easier on your home! 

  1. Replace Filter

With allergens on the rise, it’s always a good idea to be paying attention to the quality of the air in your home. If dirt and dust are present on surfaces or getting out of hand in your vents, then it’s time to replace your air filters. We suggest that you make a habit of doing so at least once a month to ensure that your HVAC system doesn’t overheat and the air in your home is clean.

  1. Check Roof for any Damage

Rough winters with large amounts of snow or hail can be damaging to your roof. So consider doing a quick overview of the condition of your roof, or hire a professional inspection if you suspect a problem. 

  1. 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.
