Stay Safe This Spring

Spring isn’t just a transitional time for nature, it’s also a transitional time for you and your home. The time change has officially gone into effect and some of us are feeling that hour of sleep we have lost. With the time change, Royal Heating & Air knows that it’s a great time to check certain things around your house. Our clocks have been changed, but there are other things like batteries, thermostats, and air filters that should also be changed. The best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks has put together a checklist of things that should be done before the spring season starts.

Spring Checklist

Thermostat Batteries – your thermostat is an important tool that you need year-round. The batteries in your thermostat need to be changed about once a year. Spring is a good time to check those batteries, and replace them if necessary.

Air Filter – before the spring season, it’s important to check your air filter and replace it if needed. You should also make sure that your HVAC system is in working order before the hot weather returns. Give the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks a call to set up your spring maintenance.

Clean Around Outdoor Unit – during the winter months, debris and dirt can build up around your outdoor unit without anyone noticing. Once the weather begins to warm up, it’s important to inspect the area around your unit and make sure there’s at least a 3-foot clearance. When planting new flowers for spring and redoing the landscape, keep in mind how big plants and flowers will grow. Don’t plant anything too close to your unit.

Smoke & CO Detectors – spring is a great time to test both smoke and CO detectors. A great rule of thumb to follow is to replace their batteries every Daylight Saving Time. These detectors are critical to you and your family’s safety, so it’s important to make sure that they are properly working.

Create or Review Family Emergency Plan

Emergencies can happen at any time, so it’s important that each household has a plan and exit strategy in case of an emergency. You need to have a plan in case of a fire or even a carbon monoxide threat. You will only have minutes to get out of the house, so it’s important to have a plan and to practice and implement that plan. Daylight Saving Time is a great reminder to review and practice your emergency plan.

Don’t Forget To Schedule Your Spring Maintenance

Early spring is a great time to get your HVAC system serviced by Royal Heating & Air. Bi-annual maintenance is important and the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks can make sure that your system is ready for the hot and humid summer weather.
