After a long, cold Northbrook, Illinois, winter with your heater running almost non-stop, you need to have your HVAC system serviced when the weather gets warmer in the spring. If not, be ready for a long, hot summer when temperatures soar, a humidity thick enough to cut with a knife, and an HVAC system that can’t keep you cool.

Still unsure? Look at these reasons you should have a professional look over your HVAC system this spring.

Clean Your System

During the cold weather, you relied on your HVAC system a lot to keep you warm and comfortable. As a result, your air filter worked extra hard to process the circulating air. Regular filter cleaning or replacement is very important, but you will need to be even more vigilant during periods of heavy use. Dust and other debris can clog your filter, pollute your indoor air, and affect the performance of your air conditioner. This also means will likely pay higher energy bills in the summer.

Preparation for Summer Months

Because we check everything, such as airflow, refrigerant levels, and wiring, you can feel confident that when an unusually warm day hits, your air conditioner will turn on and keep you cool. Finding out now if there’s a problem to be fixed is better than discovering it when the temperatures soar later.

Keep Your System Running Longer

With regular HVAC service and maintenance, you can keep your system running longer and more efficiently for years. Instead of worrying how you’ll replace it when you hit the 10-year mark, you may be able to keep it going for an extra five or more years

When we come out to look at your HVAC system, we can tell you if you need to start thinking about replacement options. Instead of being surprised in the heat of the summer or cold of winter by a dead unit, we’ll let you know if you need to start planning now for a new system.
