4 Spring Heating Maintenance Tips To Get Your Home Ready For Warmer Weather


In early spring, you may still be using your heating, which needs to have maintenance done to prevent problems. As the weather gets warmer, you will also want to prepare to turn your heating off for the year with maintenance or upgrades that need to be done while you are not using your heating. Here are some heating maintenance tips to help get your home ready for warmer weather:

1. Routine Filter Changes in Early Spring While Heating Is Still in Use

Even though the weather seems to be getting warmer in early spring, there are still those cold nights and days that seem like winter has not ended yet. Therefore, you want to keep your heating ready to turn it on when your home gets a little too cold. You will need to continue with routine maintenance like changing the filters, as well as occasional repairs that may be needed to keep your heating working through the early weeks of spring.

2. Servicing of Heating and AC Before the Weather Changes

As the weather begins to get warmer in spring, your HVAC is going to need servicing. First, you will want to have the furnace or boiler serviced to prepare for the idle summer months when it will not be in use. You will also want to have the AC serviced to get your home ready for cooling.

3. The Repairs That Heating Needs After You Turn It Off for the Year

Over the winter months, your heating gets a lot of wear, which may mean that there are some repairs that are needed. Some of the repairs that are needed may be emergencies that you need to keep your home warm, while other repairs may be less serious and can wait until you do not use your heating as much in the late spring.

4. Heater Upgrades to Consider for Your Home During Warmer Weather

The later spring is a good time to start considering upgrades like new heating installation if you have an old or outdated system that is inefficient. Other improvements that you may want to consider include updating ductwork, installing a programmable thermostat or integrating renewable energy with geothermal or solar solutions.

These are some heating maintenance tips to help get your home ready for warmer weather. If you need help with some of these upgrades to the heating ion your home, contact a heating contractor for help with maintenance, repairs or installation of your heater. To learn more, contact a company like Always Ready Repair.

all about attic ventilation

While sitting in my living room on a hot summer day, I could feel the heat coming through the ceiling out of my attic and making the house warm up more than it should. I crawled up into the attic one evening to find out that the roof vents weren't working any longer because they were clogged with all sorts of debris. Did you know that when this happens, your home's temperature can rise to very uncomfortable levels? Did you know that your home could actually be damaged if the attic isn't well vented? This blog will show you all about attic ventilation.
