Did you know your HVAC equipment needs to be properly cared for prior to the winter season? Most of us worry about how we’ll cool our homes on the hottest days of the year, but the truth is that our HVAC systems need attention throughout the year to truly work their best! As you look ahead to the fall and winter seasons, here are some HVAC maintenance tips to keep your system working well.
- Replace Air Filters – One of the easiest things you can do to keep your HVAC system working well throughout the year is to routinely replace the air filters in your home. Many systems that are working overtime simply have dirty filters that prevent good airflow through the air ducts. Replacing your air filters regularly will also help ease the need for repairs or other unexpected HVAC maintenance issues.
- Inspect Your Thermostat – Did you know an outdated thermostat could be the culprit if you are having trouble heating and cooling your home? Giving your thermostat a quick test or investing in an upgrade can go a long way toward making HVAC maintenance easier.
- Fix Drafty Doors & Windows – No matter how efficient your HVAC system is, drafty doors and windows can create a vacuum that prevents your home from maintaining the proper temperature. If you notice you have drafty areas of your home, an important part of HVAC maintenance is to correct the drafts, so your HVAC system isn’t working overtime.
- Schedule HVAC Maintenance – Even if you take HVAC maintenance seriously as part of your home maintenance routine, sometimes your equipment needs professional servicing. Having a technician come in to do an HVAC tune-up can offer you peace of mind and reliable heating when the weather turns cold!
