Fall is the start of the harsh winter ahead. Colder weather means more use of your HVAC system. Your HVAC system should receive regular maintenance, especially when the temperatures change. Switching from your air conditioner to the furnace can sometimes cause strain on your system. Before starting your furnace for the colder weather, it is best to have an HVAC specialist inspect and maintain it. Below we will talk about a few things you should have completed on your HVAC system to ensure it keeps your home warm all fall and winter long.
Fall Maintenance Checklist
Your HVAC specialist will want to do a thorough check of your entire system. This will include both the interior and exterior parts of your unit. They will check all parts to ensure the unit is in working order and then will provide some maintenance.
• Clean The Outside Unit of Dirt and Debris
• Ensure Pipes Are Insulated
• Clear Drain Lines and Pipes
• Clean The Coil of Dirt and Debris
• Check Components and Ducts
• Ensure Outdoor Unit is Protected From The Elements
Some maintenance you can complete to ensure your HVAC works correctly. Changing your filters every 1 to 3 months and ensuring no limbs or grass is crowding your outdoor unit is important. You can also vacuum your vents to stop any dirt or debris from entering your unit. By doing this, you can increase your indoor air quality. Taking care of your HVAC unit will make sure it works for years to come and continues to keep you warm during the winter and cool during the Summer months. If you notice any problems with heating or cooling or noises, it is time to contact an HVAC specialist.
