Days are becoming longer, flowers are starting to bloom, and animals wake up from hibernation. Spring is here, people! Time to spring into spring cleaning mode and ready your households for the warmer weather approaching. Besides storing away your winter clothes and tidying every room, corner, and crevice, we hope you conserved some space on your spring cleaning list for your HVAC system. Spring is an excellent time to straighten up and assess your air conditioner to help identify any likely issues and improvement possibilities before you commence continuous use throughout the warm summer months. Our team at Mason Heating & Air wanted to suggest some tasks for you to achieve to help steer your attention on readying your air conditioner for the heat to come.

What is the Importance of a Whole-Home Dehumidifier?

We can expect to experience moisture in spring and summer here in Ohio. High condensation and humidity levels can create an uncomfortable atmosphere within your home. Conserving proper humidity levels promotes improved indoor air quality and permits you and your family to feel more relaxed inside your home. If interested, our specialists at Mason Heating & Air would be thrilled to install a whole-home dehumidifier for your home this spring season!

Why is it Important to Have AC Units Serviced?

If nothing else, the most significant thing you can do for your home this spring is to have your air conditioning unit evaluated by an HVAC specialist. Now is the precise time to schedule your spring AC service. As warm weather advances, HVAC companies become more occupied with servicing customers. However, if avoiding the pressures of trying to schedule last-minute repairs seems like something you are interested in, we can certainly set you up with one of our service maintenance agreements. Our maintenance plans help optimize your airflow, boost your unit’s efficiency, and enable you to find comfort in having a skilled professional monitor your HVAC system throughout the season.

What are the Benefits of Decluttering Your Home?

Organizing and sprucing up around the house encourages your home to be more fulfilling to the eye and your lungs. If there are fewer obstacles throughout your home, cleaning will be more beneficial when working to clear any dust and allergens affecting air quality. Give yourself room to breathe, and breathe with ease. Go through each area in your home and remove things you haven’t used in a while and dust! In doing this, your HVAC system will perform more effortlessly if your household is kept clean.

What is the Importance of Cleaning and Sealing Windows?

We may recognize if our windows let in the cold air; otherwise, we don’t give our windows much attention. However, winter ice is the main culprit for sealant or caulking, fracturing, and breaking down. Also, the moisture from rain can cause rot and other damages, worsening already present cracks. Due to freezing temperatures, windows are vulnerable to detaching from their frames during the cold months. Accordingly, problems can emerge when the outside air moves voluntarily through our windows throughout the year. One of the greatest aggravations is witnessing your energy bill fly high. Across the board, cleaning your windows enables your home to look more radiant. Still, it can also benefit by allowing more sun in during the cooler early spring days without relying only on your HVAC system. Sealing up your windows can support the air coming in from your air conditioner; while preventing any loss of cool filtered air or gain of humid tainted outdoor air.

Why is it Important to Exchange Thermostat Batteries?

I can tell you from personal experience that while your HVAC system may be working well, your thermostat could be credible for your air conditioner not operating to its planned ability. However, by swapping out your batteries before spring and summer begin, you can feel confident that your thermostat won’t shut off or malfunction at an inconvenient time. Also, maintaining batteries in your thermostat assures that even if there is a power outage, which is understandable during Ohio winds, your thermostat’s settings will remain, so you won’t have to withstand the stress of reprogramming all over again.
