They say timing is everything, but very few have ever witnessed the combination of events that took place on March 20. Friday was the first day or spring, also referred to as the vernal equinox and the official astronomical end to winter. It is also the year’s longest day of sunlight when the most direct rays of sun hit the equator.
Friday also included two other independent celestial events in the form of a total solar eclipse (the only one for this year) and a supermoon. While those of us in the United States won’t be able to see the eclipse of the moon obscuring part of the sun, our area did observe the beauty of the supermoon. The super quality occurs because the moon is closer to the Earth during its elliptical orbit, according to Accuweather. Considering that a total solar eclipse happens only once every 360 years on average, you can imagine, the chance of all these events happening on the same day is truly an once-in-a-lifetime event.
When all Things Align
The alignment of things at the beginning of a new season can feel like the perfect catalyst for continued action. Whether that’s moving out the old with a round of spring cleaning or scheduling the twice yearly maintenance on your homes Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system.
Scheduled maintenance in the form of a comprehensive 25-Point cooling inspection from the Olathe HVAC service professionals at Davenport Service is the best way to ensure that the system remains in top functioning order, no matter if you’re using the heater or the air conditioner. This is particularly true with the back-and-forth temperatures we’ve experienced the last two weeks. The fluctuations are not only confusing for the residents of the home (spring clothes or winter clothes) but it can also cause stress on the home’s HVAC system.
Each HVAC inspection begins with a Davenport HVAC technician conducting an interior inspection of the system to clean the lines and the filter. During the inspection, the technician will also remove accumulated debris and corrosion, check for damage or leaks, and ensure the HVAC system is free from unwanted pests. During the cold weather months, pests such as mice can try to make a home inside the HVAC unit. When spring comes, the mice vacate for the outdoors, leaving behind a mess of chewed wires that can compromise the efficient functioning of your unit.
