AC & Heater Repair in San Antonio

Spring Maintenance Checklist

Spring is on the horizon and you know what that means! It’s that time of year to head outdoors and check on a few things after a long winter. Spring cleaning is all about maintaining your home but also about avoiding costly repairs down the road. Here are four ways you can start this seasonal task:

Check your gutters. Your gutters might be filled with leaves and debris from the winter month. They might also have water damage from storms. Protect your large investment by carefully climbing up on the ladder and inspecting the situation. Use rubber gloves to grab hold of debris and hose down afterwards.

Repair windows and doors. Spring means you’ll soon be taking advantage of your air conditioning, so check the seals around both your windows and doors. That way, you can reduce your AC bill and prevent water from entering your home during the warmer months.

Clear decks and driveways. While the weather is nice out, grab the water pressure hose and wash your deck as well as your driveway. If you don’t have one, ask to borrow a neighbor’s (and wash theirs for them too). While you’re at it, inspect that your deck and driveway isn’t cracked and in need of repair.

Change HVAC filters. It’s that time of year again when you will need to change the dirty filter in your HVAC system, especially as you begin to crank your AC more, which uses a lot of energy. Extend the lifespan of your system by cleaning the filter and replacing it if necessary.
