Preparing Your HVAC System For Fall

It’s time to pull out the sweaters, watch football, and enjoy pumpkin spice-flavored everything.

It’s also time when the cooler weather creeps up on us unexpectedly, with the heat on standby ready to kick on.

Now is the perfect time to begin to prep your HVAC system for the fall season.

Here are a few helpful tips to get you started.

Outdoor Unit

If you have an outdoor unit, double-check for any debris or damage. Remove all debris to ensure the proper airflow and prevent dirt or leaves from getting on the coils or inside the unit.

Air Filters

Dirty furnace and air conditioning filters can cause several problems with your HVAC system. For instance, it may prevent your system from heating or cooling your home adequately and efficiently.

Stay on top of furnace filter changes throughout the heating months to keep your system working correctly.

Seal Air Leaks

Prevent drafts and decrease energy waste in your home by sealing windows and doors with caulk and weather-stripping.

Check Your Detectors

Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are essential devices that keep you safe. Replace the batteries with new ones.

The U.S. Fire Administration recommends that you replace your smoke detectors every 10 years. You can check the date of manufacture on the back of the smoke detector.

Push the test button on each device to ensure they are working correctly.

Schedule Maintenance Checkup

The best way to prepare your system for fall is to schedule a maintenance checkup with us.
