There are several signs of fall. Whether it’s the scarecrows, pumpkin patches or scary campfire stories, the orange season is sure to make a memorable entrance. With colder days comes even colder nights, and your HVAC system can encounter some dangerous setbacks during this time of year.
HVAC maintenance during the fall is vital in keeping your home running effectively and efficiently. A well-kept system results in lower energy bills and a comfortable, hot chocolate fueled home.
Need maintenance tips?
Here are four tried and true procedures that should be done in every home in the fall.
Replace your air filters
Changing your air filters periodically is vital for not only allergy purposes but technical as well. An unchecked and unmanaged filter can lead to dirty air, insulation issues and potential HVAC failure.
Clean your vents
One of the easiest ways to sustain a healthy home is by cleaning your vents after replacing the filters. Take time to thoroughly vacuum each vent so your system appropriately regulates your home’s temperature.
Call an inspector
Having your HVAC system inspected is crucial, especially during the cooler months. It never hurts to have a professional and experienced opinion when it comes to the health of your home’s HVAC system. Spend some time to research inspectors near you to find one that accurately matches your needs.
Insulate your attic
Your HVAC system can’t do all the work, right? Your attic should help! As you approach fall, your body’s focus goes from cooling off to staying warm. Having your home correctly insulated will allow warm air to stay inside your home as opposed to escaping it.
All in all, the colder months symbolize a variety of things. Whether it’s the holidays, the traveling or the sparkling lights on every corner, fall is a sign of preparation.
