Now that summer is over and fall has arrived, it is time to start preparing for the winter. Winter can be a dangerous time for your HVAC system. With the changing temperature, extended use of heating, and growing energy costs, it is important to ensure your HVAC system is working properly before the cold winter comes.
During the summer, HVAC systems work extra hard to ensure you are getting the proper cooling you need in your home. This extra work puts a strain on your system and can cause issues if not properly maintained.
Along with having to work harder to maintain a cool home, your HVAC system builds up more and more dirt and debris while in use. Having your filters inspected and replaced after a long summer can do wonders for the longevity of your HVAC system.
Preventative maintenance is a large factor when it comes to the health of your heating and cooling system. With the extreme weather of the winter, your heating system will have to work harder and use more energy if it is not properly maintained. When your HVAC system receives fall maintenance it will be better prepared to handle the extra winter workload. This increases the longevity of your system and reduces costs in the long term.
What Fall Maintenance Does
Receiving maintenance on your HVAC system ensures the system is taken care of and always ready to use. If you receive fall maintenance from an experienced and licensed professional, you can be sure they cover most of the basics of maintenance.
Check Air Filters
Your air filters build up dust and debris over time. After a long summer that has your air conditioning system working harder, you will need a professional to inspect, diagnose, and replace the air filters in your system.
Sometimes, the temperature that you think you are making your home is not the actual temperature. Thermostats need regular calibration to ensure the right temperature is being produced by your HVAC system. This saves money and energy.
Inspect and Diagnose
Your HVAC professional will inspect, diagnose, and repair any problems that you may have with your heating and air conditioning system. Many HVAC problems are not visible to the untrained eye. Having a professional and experienced technician ensures your system always runs smoothly.
