There are a few things that need to be done as the furnace season wanes down. Our winter/spring transitions can be fairly unpredictable, though the people in the Greater Las Vegas, NV doesn’t have to rely on the furnace too long into year. Having the plan to prepare the furnace can be helpful once you realize the weather is officially warming up. Tragically, in the United States, an average of 170 people die every year from the furnaces, and other non-automotive consumer products that produce Carbon Monoxide (CO). Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to share the basic steps you should take before the furnace is no longer needed.
How Do I Change My HVAC from Furnace to AC
1) Change or Clean the Air Filters. Utilized year-round are the HVAC system filters. Some people need a good reminder when it comes time to change or cleaned the filter, and depending on the type of filter, the change from heating to air conditioning can be a good reminder to this crucial step done.
The filter needs to be maintained every 30-90 days, which are contingent on the individual home’s circumstances. You can reduce energy consumption in your home by 5-10% by replacing a dirty filter with a clean one frequently as well.
2) Assess Furnace for Cracks. It is possible that gas is leaking out of your furnace if in the event you discover any cracks in the combustion chamber. To help prevent gas from leaking into your home, most new furnaces include safety features. Older furnaces most likely do not have this feature, however, and are more susceptible to gas leaks.
3) Maintain a Clean Area Around the Furnace. The general area needs to be cleared around the furnace, so make sure to avoid the accumulating clutter. Especially during the summer when it is not in, it is easy for the stuff to pile up around your furnace. You might want to turn the heat back for a couple hours during the cold and rainy spring days. You could ignite potential fires if anything is stored too close. Ensure the furnace has at least 18 inches, and preferably, 3 feet of clearance to prevent hazards.
4) Schedule Professional HVAC Services. You need a technician to conduct these services when it comes to any outstanding maintenance and repairs. During professional service, the furnace has a detailed inspection of the components, combustion chamber, burner assembly, the motor, pilot light, the bearings, and heater exchange among others. An AC tune-up includes tasks such as a comprehensive cleaning of condenser coils, evaluation of coolant level, lubrication of all moving parts, full calibration of thermostat, inspection of ductwork, tightening of all electrical connections and evaluation of blower motor performance and condition of blower belt.

It is recommended to have the furnace inspected at the end of the season and have the air conditioner tuned-up around this time of year to ensure your HVAC system is effective and lasts.
