When Spring and Summer arrive in St. Louis and the surrounding area, issues with your HVAC system will be the last thing you want to be worrying about.

Here are some tips to prepare your home for the summer heat.

Schedule a Seasonal Tune-Up

Seasonal residential maintenance is the best way to prolong the life of your equipment. Maintaining your equipment will help protect against costly breakdowns and promote maximum heating and cooling efficiency and equipment longevity. It will also ensure your system is operating safely. Rhymes Heating and Cooling is a call away and can make sure your system is ready for the St. Louis Heat.

Change your Air Filter

Purchasing a high quality 1” thick air filter can cause restrictions in your system and cause problems resulting from low airflow. A thicker, 4-5” filter will allow higher airflow due to a higher available surface area within the filter. Rhymes Heating and Cooling offers a variety of air cleaners that will dramatically improve the working mechanics of your HVAC system.

Make sure your Ductwork is Sealed Tight.

This is more important for those who have ducts through their homes attics, however, if your basement is not finished and it’s always warm in the winter and cold in the summer, you could benefit from Rhymes Heating and Cooling sealing your ductwork.

Think About Upgrading your Air Conditioning System

Spring is a great time to think about this. Rhymes Heating and Cooling can come out and inspect your unit, and then make recommendations. We offer Carrier units that offer high efficiency and complete air conditioning comfort in your home, while saving you money.
