When the colder months get closer, you want to make sure that your HVAC system is going to be working the way that you need it to. It is important to have your unit inspected so that you can be confident it will work well for you when the temperatures drop below freezing outside. By being prepared, you can enjoy staying warm inside no matter how low the temperatures drop outside.
1. Clear Away Debris From Your Unit
The summer months can cause leaves, pollen, sticks, and other things to cover your unit. This can stop the flow of air inside your home or make it less effective than it needs to be. Be sure to clear away debris around your unit so that it will work its best.
2. Test your HVAC Unit
It is important to test out your HVAC unit to see how well your heat is going to work before the cold weather hits. You want to let your unit run a little to see if any issues need to be resolved. If your unit does not work the way you expect it to, it is time to contact a Christian Heating & Air Conditioning professional to help your HVAC System get ready for the cold months ahead.
3. Change or Clean Your Filter
Your air filter will get dirty during the summer months since your unit works hard to keep your home cool. Be sure to change out your air filter or have it cleaned before the cold weather hits. A dirty filter can make it harder for your furnace to do its job and will cause your energy bills to increase. By changing or cleaning your filter, you can be sure that it will work right and help make your unit more energy efficient.
4. Have an HVAC Professional Inspect Your Unit
If you want to know for sure that your unit is going to be working well this season, have a professional perform routine maintenance. They will find out if your unit is in good shape and can repair any issues, they find early on to prevent an emergency later.
