Get Your HVAC System Summer-Ready

Summer is the harshest season on our HVAC systems in West Alabama. Between the sizzling summer heat and high humidity levels, our systems are working overtime to keep our homes cool and comfortable inside. Because of that, it’s especially important to begin preparing your HVAC system for warmer weather before it hits full-force. Get your HVAC system summer-ready with these tips!

The Small Tips

First and foremost, making small changes here and there can actually add up to a ton of energy-savings, and they can make a big difference in prolonging the life of your system and lessening your risk of system breakdowns. Follow these small steps to start making a big difference in the effectiveness and efficiency of your system this summer:

  • Change or clean your air filter every 1-3 months.
  • Consider replacing your standard filter with a high performance filter.
  • Ensure the outdoor unit is free of debris such as limbs, leaves, dirt, or even plants growing too close. 
  • Clean the air vents around your home to ensure they’re free of dust, pet hair, or any obstructions like furniture, toys, or curtains.
  • Take a look at any visible wiring to ensure it has not corroded or deteriorated, and call a technician if anything looks off.
  • Schedule your thermostat for the season and replace batteries if needed.

The Big Tips

Sign Up for Preventative Maintenance

The best measure you can take toward ensuring your system works properly throughout the summer is to have regular maintenance performed on it. During a maintenance visit from Legacy Heating & Cooling, a technician will inspect, clean, and make any necessary adjustments to your system to ensure it runs smoothly throughout the summer.

Investing in a variable speed system is a great way to prepare your home and family for summer.
