Spring HVAC Maintenance Checklist for 2024

Spring has sprung in Indianapolis, and with it comes warmer weather and the need for reliable air conditioning. Before the summer heat hits, performing spring HVAC maintenance is crucial to ensure your system runs smoothly and efficiently. Here’s a quick and easy checklist to keep your home cool and comfortable all season:
 

Spring HVAC Maintenance Checklist

 

1. Schedule an HVAC Inspection

An annual professional inspection is vital for catching potential problems early on. This can save you money in the long run by preventing costly repairs. Don’t wait for your AC to break down on a scorching day – a quick inspection can identify and fix minor issues before they become significant problems.

2. Set Your Thermostat to Auto

Take advantage of your thermostat’s auto setting! This function automatically adjusts your heating or cooling based on the preset temperature, eliminating the need for constant manual adjustments. This saves energy and helps maintain consistent comfort throughout the day. Even better, consider programming your thermostat for slightly warmer settings in the summer and cooler settings in the winter. Energy Star reports that Indianapolis homeowners can save up to $180 annually by using the auto setting and adopting seasonal temperature adjustments. 

Keep in mind, some thermostats have two “auto” settings. One for the fan, and one for temperature control (IE, it will automatically heat or cool depending on your home’s temperature.) Make sure you’re using the latter for maximum energy savings and comfort!

3. Replace Your Air Filters

This simple step is often overlooked but is crucial in maintaining optimal HVAC performance. Dirty or clogged air filters restrict airflow, forcing your AC to work harder and reducing efficiency. Regularly replacing your air filters (typically once a month during peak cooling season) improves airflow, saves energy, and extends the lifespan of your HVAC system.
