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.
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.
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.
