How to Prepare Your HVAC for Winter

The changing seasons brings a change to lower HVAC costs. You can do this by using the unit less. This is the best time to prepare your system for the winter season. You will use your heat more than any other time in the year. Are you prepared for the chill of the winter season?

Routine preventative maintenance can prepare your system for shifts in seasonal temperatures. Have you ever had a time where you didn't have heating on the coldest day of the year? Increased performance helps reduce emergencies,. It also helps keep temperatures in your home consistent. HVAC professionals can maintain and prepare your heating system for the winter. In the meantime, here are some steps you can use to help with preparation.

Check and Replace Filters

Replace air filters every three months. Clogged filters can cause your system to work harder. Dirty air filters are one of the most common reasons air conditioning units stop working. Air cannot pass through the system if dirt traps and prevents it from flowing. This can also cause your systems to become overheated. It will burn out from motors working harder than expected. Replacing the air filter prolongs the life of your heating and cooling system.

Check Vents

Vents are often forgotten as part of the HVAC system. It is important to not block vents. You can do this by accident with furniture or other items. These prevent or obstruct the flow of air in the home. Prepare your system by not straining the unit. Poor air-flow results in extra pressure and poor performance of the unit.

Heating and Air Conditioning Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is key to having a working heating and air conditioning system. To get prepared for the winter, check your system when the fall begins. Your family will begin to use the system more towards the end of fall. Remember to have any weird sounds checked by a professional. Once they perform the maintenance check, your system can run at full capacity.
