For springtime, some people think of nature springing to life again or opening weekend of baseball or the hope of upcoming vacations. Others bemoan getting ready for horrible things like pest control or swimsuit season or allergies. Warm weather readiness pervades our thoughts. We would submit to you that this time of year is also the appropriate time for tuning up the HVAC system and making sure it’s ready for the warm weather. Don’t worry, though, we put together a quick spring maintenance checklist for you.
Action #1: Check the System for Damage and Detrimental Conditions
You’re looking for anything that will keep the system from running safely, efficiently, and effectively, such as:
Cracked, Burst, Missing, or In Any Way Compromised…
Objects Over Vents
Action #2: Fix the Damage, Remove Airflow Restrictions, and Focus on Safety
Once you’ve resolved the issues, you shouldn’t consider yourself finished with the spring maintenance checklist if you haven’t ensured the safety and air quality of the residents. In addition to the functional pieces of the system we just looked at - the many we can see - we also need to prioritize the conditions we can smell and touch, and even those we can’t touch.
Particulates such as smoke
Black Mold and Others
Microorganisms Like Viruses
Radon and Asbestos
