Optimizing Your HVAC for Unpredictable Spring Weather

When winter finally releases its icy grip, spring temperatures are a welcome change. But spring can bring its own weather challenges with a yo-yo of temperatures and soaking rains. Temperature swings can make it hard for your HVAC system to adjust. Here are a few things you can do to optimize your HVAC system for an unpredictable spring season.

Schedule Regular Maintenance

Regular maintenance is key to keeping your HVAC system running efficiently. A professional inspection of your system can help identify problems, replace worn components, and extend the lifespan of your HVAC system.

Monitor Humidity Levels

Humidity levels can creep up in the spring, affecting the air quality inside your home. If your home feels too dry or too moist, you might have an issue with the humidity level. Consider a whole-home humidification system that will integrate into your existing HVAC system to regulate your home’s humidity levels.

Use Your Home’s Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are a great way to circulate the air, making it less stuffy. Changing your ceiling fan direction seasonally is a way to save money on heating and cooling costs and help your HVAC system do its job.

When the temperature outside is warmer, your ceiling fan should spin counterclockwise to create a downdraft of direct cooling breeze. In winter, the opposite is true. Clockwise creates an updraft to circulate warm air around the room.

Seal Air Leaks

Your HVAC system might be doing its job, but air leaks around windows and doors and failing ductwork make it work harder. Manually feel around doors and windows for areas that might be the source of leaks. Home energy professionals can use a blower door test as a more sophisticated diagnostic tool to determine how much air is entering or escaping your home. When you find the problem spots, weather stripping or caulking can usually do the trick.

Clean Air Filters

Your HVAC system pushes air through your home’s filters to reach your desired temperature. A dirty or clogged filter makes the system work harder to get that air through. This can cause extra strain on your system and shorten its lifespan.

Invest in a Programmable Thermostat

Setting your desired indoor air temperature using a programmable thermostat helps your system adjust to the changing weather conditions in spring. According to the U. S. Department of Energy, you can save up to 10% yearly on heating and cooling by turning your thermostat back 7-10 degrees for 8 hours a day from its normal setting.

Schedule the system to reach your desired temperature before you return home. A programmable thermostat also avoids the temptation by homeowners to make big temperature demands according to the swing in the weather outside instead of relying on a programmed schedule of heating and cooling demands.
