Setup Your HVAC Unit for the Winter
Once the hot season is over, the fall sets in and it’s time to think about the cool temperatures. During the fall, your ac unit could use a break for the hard work it did during the summer, but that doesn’t mean that your HVAC goes into hibernation. Instead, you can start preparing your HVAC unit for the winter season. Here are a few tips to keep your HVAC system ready for the fall:
Program your thermostat
When the cooler, yet unpredictable temperatures of autumn set in, it’s a perfect time to change your thermostat settings. During this time, weather patterns change frequently, causing a range of temperatures. If you never considered a smart thermostat, start now. This programmable wonders control both heating and cooling, and can learn how to change based on the outside temperatures. It’s a way to keep your home comfortable and save money at the same time.
Change your filter
During the summer, dust and pollen are more plentiful. Unless you’ve recently replaced your HVAC filter, the beginning of fall is an ideal time to do so. Over time, this debris clogs the filter, causing your HVAC system to work harder to produce your desired temperature.
Schedule a Tuneup
If you want your HVAC system to last longer than the typical 10 to 15 years, scheduled maintenance is for the utmost importance. Fall provides a perfect time to check your furnace, as well as prep your air conditioner for the off-season.
