Autumn HVAC Maintenance Tips
Seasons change rapidly, and it is vital to be sure that your HVAC is ready for them. If not, you may be likely to face some unexpected breakage. Here is a list of some autumn maintenance tips:
1. Check the thermostat
Before the temperatures drop, test the thermostat to ensure that is working well. If the thermostat shows the correct temperature lever or responds quickly, everything is fine.
2. Keep the outdoor unit clean
If you have not checked the outside unit recently, now is the best time to do it. Check if there are not any leaves and branches stuck in, and inspect the unit for damage.
3. Clean the vents
The more often AC is used, the dirtier ducts become. After the hot summer, a lot of dust appeared inside the HVAC that should be clean. Also, check that all the vents are open and unobstructed.
3. Home air leaks
Inspect if there are air leaks in your house. They can be the reason why your HVAC works harder, and your energy bill goes higher. Windows and doors are the most common places where you can discover air leaks.
4. Don’t ignore suspicious noises
When Air Condition and Furnance are functioning well, there should not be any weird noises. If you hear some, it could be a sign that something is wrong.
