Spring is the perfect time of year to perform routine maintenance on your HVAC system. With the milder temperatures of the spring season, you can check on your HVAC system to make sure that it’s running properly before the sweltering heat of the summer kicks in. 

One small but important step you can take to help maintain your HVAC system is to clean your home’s air returns and registers. The registers can be found throughout the rooms in your home, typically on the floor. They are covered with a vent cover, which you can easily remove and clean with a paper towel to remove any dust. You can also use a paper towel or duster to clean your home’s air returns, which are usually located in a wall or the ceiling, and your home usually only has 1-3 of these. Dusting these areas periodically can help to improve the quality of your home’s air.

If you notice any mold growth on any of your air returns or registers, this is something that you’ll want to have an HVAC professional check out immediately so they can help figure out the source of the mold growth. 

It’s also a good idea to have your air ducts cleaned out periodically, usually every 3-5 years. Since your ducts are behind your walls, this is something that you’ll likely want to have an HVAC professional do for you. Over time, dust particles, pet hair, and other small particles get trapped in your air ducts and both reduce the quality of your home’s air and keep your HVAC system from doing its best job.

This year, when you’re doing your spring cleaning, don’t forget to clean your HVAC system. Take a few minutes to dust off your air returns and registers, and give us a call at North Carolina Heating & Air Conditioning in Greenville, NC to have your air ducts cleaned.
