Ultimate Guide to Spring Cleaning Your HVAC Unit

Besides having your HVAC ducts cleaned, there are a number of other things to do to improve your system’s longevity and energy efficiency. Let’s break it down!


  1. Change your air filters — Dirty filters need to be replaced regularly, to enable unrestricted airflow.
  2. Dust and wash ceiling fan blades — It sounds simple, but it can be tricky to do it without making a mess!
  3. Upgrade your thermostat — Getting a smart thermostat if you don’t already have one is a worthwhile investment for saving money by more accurately controlling the temperature in your house throughout the day.
  4. Clean floor registers and ceiling vents — Buildup of dust and other materials should be removed to optimize your system.
  5. Consider getting an air purifier — Want better air this season? If allergies are a problem or you have a new pet in the house that is leaving excess dander everywhere, getting an air purifier installed in your HVAC system is a great investment, especially for this time of year. 


  1. Clean around your AC unit — Remove any dead leaves, dirt, weeds, or branches on or around your AC unit. This helps to ensure that adequate airflow is not disrupted.
  2. Check the drain line — Your AC unit’s drain line can have excess moisture built up. You shouldn’t see lots of water when you check it, but if there is no water at all, it may be a sign that it is clogged.
  3. Schedule spring maintenance — Hire a professional HVAC company to perform routine air conditioning maintenance for the areas of your system you can’t do yourself.
