The spring season embodies the words green, rejuvenation and healthy indoor air quality. Prior to the Muggy and sultry days of summer, a cornucopia of household chores assure energy savings as well as good indoor quality. Hoffmann Brothers, a name synonymous with St. Louis’ premier air conditioning contractor, prescribes the following spring cleaning do list:

Over the winter months when the air conditioner is dormant, dust collects on the unit and central air vents. If not removed that dust recycle back into the home, triggering allergies, dust mites and impeding in door air quality.

How to clean air vents: Remove vents, wiping off any residue. As a natural alternative to chemically-enhanced cleaning sprays, mix vinegar with three to four parts water to sanitize vents. Afterwards, wipe dry. In a 16-oz bowl, mix an essential oil (i.e. lavender, eucalyptus, oranges) with the appropriate ratio of water. Dab a dry cloth in the concoction. Then re-wipe vents and reattach to the air conditioning unit or central AC vent.

Take a vacuum cleaner to the clear air conditioning ducts.

Investigate any signs of mold growth throughout the home. Apply a mold killer if necessary. (Home improvement stores inventory mold killers in the same aisle as household cleaning products).

Check and change air conditioning unit’s filters as this complements healthy indoor air quality.

De-clutter. Financial planners also advise that homeowners discard bank statements and payment stubs more than a year old.

Schedule an air conditioning contractor to come in to check the system for leaks, corrosion or any problems that impede energy efficiency.

Fact: A properly maintained air conditioning unit serves as an AC replacement preventative. Market research indicates that households that employ a regular air conditioner maintenance schedule have better air efficiency, prolonging the life of the AC unit.

Eliminate dirt from window panes, sills and other areas susceptible to residue build-up.

Rearrange furniture in the living room, media room and other spaces to refresh and breathe new life into the ambiance.
