As you pack up your summer wardrobe and eye that cozy sweater, your heating and cooling systems are finally getting a breather. Fall is that sweet spot for your HVAC system between summer’s cooling demands and winter’s warming needs.
Early fall is the best time for an HVAC system check and seasonal heating maintenance. If you want to see a real difference in your HVAC performance, you should:
Your air conditioning has been cranking all summer, and your filter has kept pollutants, allergies, and dirt from circulating in your indoor air.
While filters can often last up to 90 days, early fall is a great time to start with fresh, clean filters to move into the winter season.
It not only improves indoor air quality, but a clean air filter will also improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC system.
Your exterior compressor can take quite a beating over the summer. Summer storms can drop branches and other debris onto your outdoor unit. And summer growth can infringe upon the unit’s ability to run properly.
The outdoor unit should have about a 3-foot buffer free of landscaping and other debris.
Start the fall by ensuring your outdoor compressor unit is unentangled by growth or other landscaping. Then, use a blower to brush off grass clippings or fallen leaves.
Before turning on that heat, now is a great time to determine where your home might have energy leaks.
You can do your own energy audit to identify cracked caulk around doors and windows and check if your home’s insulation meets standards. All these issues can make your HVAC system work harder than it needs to.
If you want to take your energy assessment ever further, hire a professional to conduct a formal energy audit to determine where you can improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Routine maintenance helps identify any issues with your HVAC system quickly and prevents small problems from evolving into bigger ones.
Hire a professional to complete annual HVAC maintenance in early fall. If an expert identifies a problem, you can conveniently schedule a fix rather than waiting for a system breakdown and paying for an emergency repair.
During a system check, your technician will:
