Now that fall is right around the corner, it is important to make sure your home, more specifically, your HVAC system is ready for the cooler air. Every time the seasons change, you should be preparing your HVAC system to change with it, so that it can keep up with these changing weather-related demands.
While we always recommend regular professional maintenance visits to keep your HVAC system up and running, there are other ways that you can prepare your system for the fall. Here are the easiest things you can do to keep your HVAC system working its best.
Change Out Your Air Filters
Dirty air filters can cause a lot of problems with your HVAC system. It can prevent it from heating or cooling efficiency and decrease the energy efficiency in your home as well. In short, you may notice a rise in your heating and cooling bill.
Your filters should be changed out at least every season and you should be consistent with how often you swap out your air filters.
Check Your Registers
While most people don’t think twice about their air registers, they play a very important role in your home. The registers in your home are the final stop in your duct system and if they are filled with dirt, dust, and debris, they can have a major (negative) impact. It can impact both the efficiency of your HVAC system and the air quality in your home.
Clean Your Indoor and Outdoor Unit
When fall hits, you want to make sure that you check and clean your indoor and outdoor air conditioning unit. When your outdoor unit is covered in dirt and debris it can actually impact the overall performance of your unit. Take a look at the fan and grate particularly to make sure there isn’t any outside debris in the unit.
If you see any physical damage or dents to the indoor or outdoor unit, make sure to call a professional such as those at Texas Pride Heating & Air right away.
Schedule your HVAC Inspection
Before the chilly weather hits, make sure that you test out your furnace. There is nothing worse than waiting until you really need your heat to test it out.
