Maintenance of your heating and cooling system during the fall can help prevent expensive repairs during the winter. There are some simple fall HVAC maintenance tips for fall that will set you up for a warm and cozy winter. Seasonal cleaning and maintenance of your HVAC system are essential to keeping your family comfortable all year. Doing so can ensure that your system is functioning efficiently during winter. Use the tips below to plan your seasonal HVAC cleaning and maintenance.
Clean Your Vents And Replace Air Filters
Your HVAC system works exceptionally hard during the summertime. As a result, dust and dirt often accumulate on your vents. Dust and other debris also collect on ducts and other HVAC components. Cleaning these parts can prevent dust from circulating, impacting indoor air quality. By not cleaning parts, you can force your system to work twice as hard as it will overcompensate these issues. Depending on what type of air filters you have, they may need to be changed every 30 days as others have longer lifespans. A dirty filter restricts airflow, making your system work harder and reducing efficiency. Replace the filter in all units with removable filters, including furnaces, air conditioners, air handlers, humidifiers, or air cleaners.
Pay Attention To The Thermostat
Programmable thermostats are beneficial because they can be configured to outdoor seasonal settings. Whenever the seasons change, that presents an excellent opportunity for homeowners to program the thermostat for recalibration. By taking advantage of the specific time of day, you can set your indoor temperatures to outdoor temperatures for maximum energy savings.
