Generally, the fall and spring are ideal times for preventative maintenance. In fact, if you choose specific dates during these times you will be less likely to forget.
How To Prepare Your HVAC Unit for Fall
Change all the filters in your home. This task should be done often especially in the high pollen months. However, an additional official change the week of the first day of fall will make your unit much more effective throughout those cold months to come.
Call in a professional for any issues or noises. The autumn months are a great time to call in an HVAC professional to give the unit an overall inspection and to make sure that you won't be unpleasantly surprised during the first cold snap. Getting a tune-up by hiring a professional HVAC technician to inspect your system can save you time and money in the long run. The HVAC expert will be able to inspect the pilot, check the blower motor bearings, inspect the thermostat for proper calibration and do a complete cycle operation check. These steps can ensure that your HVAC unit is performing efficiently and safely during the colder months. Regular maintenance for an HVAC unit will mean cleaner indoor air, lower energy costs, and a longer life for the machine. Be sure to add HVAC maintenance to your fall chores.
