Getting Your HVAC Ready for Fall

It’s that time once again to make all the necessary preparations for the fall weather. Say goodbye to air conditioning and hello to heat. Before you turn on your heat, it’s important to make sure your HVAC is in working order. Here are some things you can do to ensure that your HVAC system is ready for all that fall throws at it.

Test Your System in Advance

Before it gets cold, it’s always a good idea to test your system. By doing this, you’ll get to see if there are any problems that need to be fixed before you need to heavily rely on it to bring you warmth. To test your system, simply set your thermostat a few degrees higher to engage your heating system. If it takes too long to reach the temperature you set it to or it doesn’t reach it at all, call an HVAC company to check it out. 

Replace Air Filters

The summer is filled with plenty of debris such as pollen and dust, and it can build up on your filters, therefore making your HVAC system work harder. You want to ensure that your HVAC system can deliver quality air so that it doesn’t make cold and flu season any worse than it needs to be. Before the fall weather hits, clean your air filters yourself or hire an HVAC technician to do it for you. 

Install Smart Thermostats 

Smart thermostats are a great tool for you to have. They allow you to set the temperature in your home from virtually anywhere. That means you can make the house warmer before you arrive or set the temperature lower when you leave the house. Install smart thermostats before it gets cold to start saving money on your energy bill. 

Schedule Your Seasonal Maintenance 

To ensure that your system is truly ready to take on fall weather, a thorough maintenance service done by a qualified HVAC technician is the best way to prepare. They will look over everything, clean your filters, and make sure that your HVAC system is running smoothly. Don’t wait till cold weather hits to do this, or else you can be looking at a cold house.
