HVAC Preventative Maintenance Tips for Fall & Winter

HVAC Preventative Maintenance Tips for Fall & Winter


If you were about to take your family on an extended road trip, one of the preparations you would likely make is taking your vehicle in for service and a thorough inspection. You wouldn’t want to spend a portion of your trip stranded on the side of the road or holed up at a hotel far from your destination waiting on major repairs that you could have avoided with a pre-trip maintenance visit. The same is true when it comes to making sure your home’s HVAC system is ready to handle the challenges of keeping your home comfortable throughout the winter months. You also want to ensure your air conditioner is ready for the long hibernation. Preventative maintenance on your HVAC system is a must to enjoy reliable and efficient service throughout the year.

Now is the perfect time to schedule HVAC maintenance. Not only are HVAC companies experiencing a lower volume of work than they will once the temperatures drop, but if you do have an issue that requires the system to be down for a bit, you also won’t be shivering during the process. It is actually even a good time to consider HVAC replacement if you want to enjoy maximum energy efficiency and comfort this winter.

Another HVAC preventative maintenance tip is knowing what tasks you can do yourself throughout the winter, such as filter changes and using insulated curtains to keep the warm air inside your home. Now is also a good time to assess if your home has sufficient attic insulation and that any energy leaks are addressed. The less your HVAC system has to work to keep your home warm, the longer it will last and the lower your energy bills will be.
