Maintaining your commercial or condo building’s HVAC system is extremely important, especially when it comes to the beginning of the spring season. While it might be your natural instinct to start cleaning up everything in your home, people often forget that their mechanical systems need attention as well. Your HVAC needs to be cleaned regularly and receive proper maintenance in order for it to keep functioning properly. At Lucky Air Climate Control, we take the care of your condo air conditioning system in Toronto very seriously. Let our experts walk you through some of the different steps to take before turning on the A/C this spring. Check the Air Filters Checking your system’s air filters is something you can do on your own every spring. Over the course of a long winter, constant use will leave air filters clogged up with dirt, dust and everything in between. Depending on the type of filter you use, you can turn off your unit, remove the filter and rinse it out for reuse. If not, you can contact the company and order a new one. A clogged air filter will cause your unit to work much harder and in many cases not work well at all. Shut Down and Check the Furnace Performing a proper furnace shutdown requires far more than simply turning the thermostat from “heat” to “cool." If you want to make sure your furnace is shut down properly, call the experts at Lucky Air Climate Control. Inspect the Air Conditioner Once the furnace is shut down properly, it’s time to have your air conditioner inspected to see if it’s ready for summer. While you can do the basic cleaning on your own, there are certain parts of your system you just won’t be able to check. Consider hiring a professional to check your coolant levels and perform some basic maintenance before firing up the A/C for a long, hot summer. Take it for a Test Run Once you’ve performed (or, better yet, had an expert perform) all the above tests and inspected each part of your system’s components, it’s time for a test run. Turn on your air conditioning system to make sure that every part of your condo HVAC is working properly for the upcoming Toronto summer.
