Spring is approaching, and that means that the sun will be coming out, and we can pack away the winter coats. But it also means that it’s time to give your HVAC unit some care and attention to ensure that it works efficiently throughout the year.

The trick to acclimatizing your HVAC unit from winter to summer is to remember that hot air rises and cools airdrops. So, in a two-story home, this means that over winter, the warm air from your furnace naturally rose to the second floor. But now that spring is on its way, you need to force cooler air to the top floors to maintain a comfortable living space. Here are some reasons why spring is the perfect time to change your air filter to achieve this and keep your home comfortable.

Seasonal Savings

There’s typically a lull that occurs between the busy heating and cooling seasons, and this is when HVAC companies usually offer savings and discounts. So, when you’re purchasing your new filters, you might be able to save money by catching these deals at the right time.

No Loss in Comfort Levels

Once the temperatures begin to get more moderate, you don’t need to heat your home as much. Still, you also don’t want to experience any discomfort in having your home be an uncomfortable temperature. Changing out the air filters in time for spring ensures that your HVAC unit will be running efficiently throughout the coming months, so you can enjoy the ideal temperature whatever the weather throws at you, without being concerned that your air filters are clogged or dirty.

More Time

Because the festive period is over and done with now, spring is the ideal time to give your home some TLC and carry out those tasks that you might have forgotten about during the winter months. One of those is checking that your HVAC unit is running properly ready for spring and summer. You’ll have more time on your hands now to check the air filters and make sure that they’re clean and ready for the warmer months.

Pollen Levels

In spring, the blossoms on the trees and plants outside are blooming, but this means that pollen counts are on the rise as well. If you or anyone in your home has allergies, this can mean that you’re irritated continuously when breathing in the air in your home that’s come in from outside. A dirty air filter isn’t as effective at removing these pollen spores from the air, so it’s important that during spring, you change out the air filter so that it’s clean and ready to purify the air in your property. This will make it a more comfortable space for you and your loved ones and will ensure that the filter does the best job possible at keeping your indoor air clean and fresh, regardless of what nature throws at it.
