When the temperatures rise above freezing, and the grass starts to show, it’s time to celebrate! Spring is finally here—but is your HVAC system ready?
The Okanagan has a very special climate, particularly for frosty Canada. Cool nights and warm days combined with an arid climate make us a top-tier wine country—it also means we must pay particular attention to our HVAC systems.
There are almost guaranteed extreme heat spikes in the summer, and when a heat wave hits, it’s imperative that your heating and cooling systems are up to snuff. That’s why not only is spring the best time to plan your garden, it’s time to get your HVAC system ready for spring and summer.
How to Prep HVAC in Kelowna for Spring
Start by working these simple maintenance tips into your spring cleaning routine:
- Get dusting: basics like clearing dirt, dust, and clutter from your AC unit make a big difference.
- Replace all air filters. This should be done at least once a season. Now’s the time!
- Put fresh batteries in the thermostat.
Schedule Routine HVAC Maintenance
Preventative maintenance solutions are really the key to success. Investing in your building’s care with regular, non-invasive check-ins saves money and headaches in the long run.
Don’t take our word for it. One of our long-time property management clients, Argus Properties, shared that we allow them to budget appropriately and avoid any issues that may arise. Read the case study here.
The Benefits of a Well-Functioning HVAC System
Staying on top of your HVAC maintenance is well worth it. The benefits of a smoothly functioning heating and cooling system include:
Happy occupants and workers
- If your commercial space includes shoppers coming and going, they won’t be in a rush to leave. Your office employees will be more comfortable and better able to focus on the task at hand.
Lower and more consistent energy bills
- One of the worst parts about an inefficient system is energy wastage, which hurts your bottom line.
Avoids costly surprise malfunctions
- Emergency services will almost always be more expensive than preventative services, and worst of all; the necessary equipment may not be available when disaster strikes. Staying on top of maintenance means budgeting for equipment upgrades and finding small problems before they become big.
