If you don’t have a maintenance agreement for your HVAC system, you are taking your chances as cooler temperatures start to descend. Whenever there’s a shift in the weather, your first priority should be to do some general prep around your home. This will minimize discomfort and keep your system running smoothly.
Here are 3 simple ways to prepare your HVAC system for the cooler months of fall:
By scheduling a checkup inspection before the season gets underway, you can get a heads up on potential problems before they escalate. Doing a preventative repair is almost always cheaper than waiting for something to go wrong. When issues arise, that leaves you facing inconvenience coupled with unexpected cost. Take the time to schedule an appointment today.
After the hot summer, your HVAC has been working overtime to keep you comfortable. This means there’s probably some wear and tear from general operation. At the very least, a routine servicing will make sure the equipment is clean and fully functional. New filters are a must so that the air circulation is clean and efficient.
Nothing can compare to the annoyance of a chilly home in the winter. Make sure your heating source is reliable before getting into the full swing of cold weather seasons. It’s also an important safety checkpoint – when the furnace is out of use, many homeowners forget to keep flammable materials a safe distance away. Clean out the area around your furnace and keep an eye out for signs of overheating.
