HVAC Spring Cleaning
Spring cleaning is a tradition, but there are some other chores that should be part of your springtime routine, too. These take only a few minutes, so lets get started!
- Check your air-conditioning and heating equipment before the beginning of a new season. Have a qualified HVAC technician do a bi-annual check-up to make sure your system is running at its optimal performance, spring and fall.
- Check and replace your furnace and air-conditioning filters every month. There are several types from which to choose, depending on your needs. Fiberglass filters last only one month, while the filters typically last three to four months. HEPA filters last up to six months and can be cleaned with a vacuum nozzle.
- Most air conditioners have a drainage hole on the base of the cabinet, beneath the evaporator fins. This opening needs to be kept clear in order for the air conditioner to work properly. It’s a good idea each spring to make sure that this drainage hole and hose remain clear so that condensation does not build up and flood the unit.
- To keep a dehumidifier working properly, replace the filter media and clean the housing. Checking drains and orifices for blockages and clear out any accumulated debris and dust that stops water from flowing where it should. This ensures you don’t end up with water on your floor or restricted airflow.

Brian Darnell started working for me about one year ago and has been excellent in his delivery. He has upgraded my kitchen, which now looks spectacular. Brian has done several home improvements and we are now in the planning phase to redo my master bathroom. His performance is outstanding, professional and detailed. Brian delivers what he promises, is punctual, and highly trustworthy. I truly recommend his services.

Completely delighted with our remodel by the Darnell-Group. We moved into a home that had a wall obstructing access to the dinning room. Different remodel companies gave estimates for removing the wall. One of the first things Brian Darnell said that made me think this is the one was, “we need to make the finished product look as if it were originally built this way.” Mr. Darnell took notice of an arch we have in the kitchen area and developed his ideas. He has the ability to visualize the completed project and clearly explain all the details involved. Appreciated their regard to leaving the work area cleaner than when they start. Thank you so much Darnell-Group for an outstanding job. We are enjoying our lovely dinning room arches.
