The change of seasons triggers homeowners. Not just an allergy trigger but as triggers to remind them when to do seasonal maintenance on their homes. Spring seasonal maintenance includes: cleaning gutters, downspouts, and heating and cooling systems. It’s also a good idea to check your weatherstripping too.
It’s critical to change your furnace and air conditioning filter as recommended by the manufacturer. If you don’t, your air conditioner compressor can freeze up due to an excessive amount of dirt and grime. If you want a sure-fire way to shorten the life of your expensive heating and cooling system, be sure to ignore changing your dirty filter.
