We are officially in Autumn, so we wanted to share with you tips on how you should handle HVAC maintenance for fall. The temperatures may, at some point, cool off, so things may change in how you are using your HVAC system. Remember these tips for HVAC maintenance for fall as we move into the cooler months!
You can clean your outdoor unit yourself with a little extra care. Be sure to turn the breaker off to your AC unit, and use a garden hose to remove any dust and debris. This will help the unit not have to work so hard to keep your home cool until the outdoor temps cool down. Most other parts of your HVAC system will be difficult to clean yourself, but just cleaning the outside unit is a necessary step in HVAC maintenance for fall.
A lot of the fall service that professional HVAC companies provide is being sure your heating system is in optimum condition. Here in Texas, though, that AC needs to be in top shape year round, too. In our area, be sure your HVAC company does a thorough AC check and heating check in your fall HVAC services.
If your HVAC professional finds anything needing your attention with the AC, air conditioner servicing is often easier to have done when the techs are not as busy as in the summer. Don’t wait for your AC to go out completely. Have the necessary air conditioner servicing done to take care of the problem.
We may not use our heaters in our homes for many months out of the year, but you certainly don’t want to find out it’s not working in the moment you need it! Schedule with your heating experts to have heating services performed on your system while the temperature outside is still comfortable. Many HVAC companies offer some kind of services for fall and spring so that your system is always in its top shape heading into the more severe months.
HVAC maintenance for fall is not a complicated checklist, but the steps here are necessary for keeping your HVAC system working at its highest efficiency. Regular maintenance is always likely to save you from costly repairs down the road, as well.
