When it comes to your HVAC system, you want to know that it is ready for the season ahead. As fall and winter approaches, taking some time to do preventative maintenance on your HVAC system will help you to avoid emergency calls this season. Here are a few preventative maintenance tips you should consider for preparing your HVAC system this fall.
Change Out Filters
This item cannot be stressed enough. Your filters do more than just remove allergens and dust in the air. They also will either help your system work efficiently or make it work much harder than it has to. It is imperative that you change out your air filters and furnace filters on a regular basis. Most air filters are good for at least 30 days, and in some cases can go up to 90 days depending on the type of filter you have.
Consider a Programmable Thermostat
If your home does not already have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider getting one installed. These can help you to not only have a more accurate temperature, you can also save money each month on your electric bill. You can program the temperatures to be a little cooler when you’re at home or sleeping and have it nice and warm while you’re in the home. The programmable aspect allows you to set different temperatures for different times and days of the week.
One of the key factors in helping with preventative maintenance on your HVAC system is to have a scheduled inspection each fall. Your experienced HVAC technician from Brinson and Sons can come out and inspect your entire heating and cooling system. They can see if there are any small repairs that should be made, clean out the ductwork in the system for better airflow, and ensure your HVAC is ready for whatever this winter season has to throw its way.
These are just a few of the steps you can take to help prevent major repairs and emerging issues in the coming winter months with your HVAC system. By having a professional inspection from a highly trained Brinson and Sons technician, you can rest assured that your home and family will stay warm and cozy this coming winter.
