It's Spring Clean Time

It's Spring Clean Time

It’s time to put another cold, damp and gloomy winter behind us because spring is here! And as the trees blossom, it’s time to think about a yearly spring clean and your air conditioning maintenance.

Okay, we know that’s probably the last thing you want to think about but hear us out. In no time the weather will be hot and you’ll want to start up the air conditioner. But it may have dirty filters or broken parts. Then you’ll be calling up your local technician who’s booked out for weeks.

Forget waiting. It’s not just the seasons to wash windows and clean up the backyard, now’s the time for spring cleaning service on your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Here are some spring cleaning tips for air conditioning maintenance and how it can help your heating and cooling system.

Split Systems

Split systems cool all summer long and then heat your home through the winter chill.

For the unit to work at its best the filter has to be regularly cleaned. It’s an important part of your spring cleaning checklist.

Dirty air conditioners harbour bacteria and allergens. They spread airborne bacteria through your home.

So, the whole unit should be professionally cleaned to ensure the best possible air quality.

The change of season in spring and autumn is the best time for cleaning and servicing your split system to prepare for the new season.

Because it’s not peak time you can easily get same day service with Metropolitan Air Conditioning. The benefits of a spring and autumn clean are:

  • More efficient operation
  • Energy savings
  • Cleaner air
  • Longer lasting AC
  • Reduce airborne bacteria
  • Beat the rush for servicing in summer and winter

Reverse Cycle Ducted Systems

Central heating and cooling makes winter and summer comfortable. Your reverse cycle ducted air conditioning system needs to be serviced and cleaned to keep you comfortable and healthy.

Don’t wait until National Spring Cleaning Day, the time to do it is now.

The filter has to be clear for the unit to work at its best. A dirty filter means dust and airborne bacteria are circulated through your home.

Your ductwork accumulates dust and debris over time and also benefits from a thorough clean out.

The best time to clean the ducts and filter is spring and autumn when the unit gets less use and the demand for AC services is low. It’s easy to get it done in a day with Metropolitan. A good spring clean will improve indoor air quality and boost your systems energy efficiency.

Enjoy these benefits with a change of season service and cleaning:

  • Power savings
  • Clean, healthier air
  • Increase lifespan of the system
  • Minimise airborne bacteria
  • Beat the peak season servicing rush
  • Optimal performance and efficiency

Gas Ducted Heaters

Gas ducted heaters should be serviced and cleaned either before or after winter.

It’s the best time because technicians are more likely to be available outside of winter peak season.

In spring and autumn are the best spring cleaning dates because you can get things done and dusted on the day with Metropolitan Air Conditioning.

It’s the ducts that need dusting. The unit works best if the ductwork is cleaned out.

The benefits of duct cleaning and servicing are:

  • Save energy and reduce bills
  • Clean, fresh air
  • Eliminate that musty smell
  • Increase the heater’s lifespan
  • Beat the servicing rush in winter
  • Optimal performance and efficiency

The service can include a carbon monoxide test to make sure there are no problems with this deadly by-product of burning gas.

Carbon Monoxide Testing

Carbon monoxide is a deadly by-product of gas heaters. It must go up the flue and outside.

Metropolitan check for negative pressure to make sure carbon monoxide can’t be drawn into the room.

We also use a device to test for the presence of carbon monoxide to ensure your safety.

The important benefits of carbon monoxide testing are:

  • Keep you and your family safe
  • Protecting vulnerable people in the house (children and elderly)
  • Peace of mind

Evaporative Air Conditioning

You use your evaporative cooler in summer. It’s covered and turned off in winter.

Spring and autumn are the ideal times to get it serviced and to clean out the ducts.

Ducts accumulate dust, debris and unwelcome guests such as insects and animals who get trapped.

Cleaning the ducts keeps things clear and fresh.

Doing it in spring or autumn means you can get it done without waiting.

The benefits of a service and duct clean are:

  • Healthier air
  • No smells
  • Increased efficiency
  • Energy savings

There’s No Better Time Than Spring

When we talk about a deep spring clean, we’re talking about more than just clearing the cobwebs away after a chilly winter. Here at Metropolitan Air Conditioning, we say spring cleaning time includes your HVAC system.

So, put away those winter clothes and prepare for the warmer months ahead. When you’re ready for spring cleaning solutions for your HVAC system, contact the heating and cooling experts at Metropolitan Air Conditioning today.
