Happy First Day of Spring!
Surely you’ve heard us talk in every manner about “preventative maintenance.” Of course, there’s all kinds of ways to practice preventative maintenance, but it tends to be thrown around in a manner that assumes you know exactly what you need to be doing. Since spring is upon us with warmer weather, your HVAC could perhaps use some tuning up.
Here’s your first major tip: Maintenance is best done in the spring and fall for a system that both heats and cools. Perfect timing!
With outdoor units, there are several simple inspections that can be done leading up to the spring season including inspecting:
- Unit for refrigerant level. Adjust if necessary.
- Compressor and tubing for damage.
- Coil & cabinet. May require cleaning.
- Inside cabinet for dirt, leaves, and debris.
- Fan motor and blades that may require lubrication.
- Control box, controls, accessories, wiring, and connections. Check for wear or damage.
- Base pan to remove obstructions in drain openings.

- Interlock AAON Units
