HVAC Maintenance Tips for the Fall Season

As we enter autumn, and the summer temperatures start to drop it is exciting to think about all the exciting fall activities to participate in this season. But before you head outdoors to enjoy the beautiful fall weather you may want to prep your HVAC system for the coming winter season. Here are a few tips to help get your HVAC system ready for fall. 

Check Thermostat 

The fall season is the perfect time to adjust your thermostat to ensure you stay comfortable as the outdoor temperatures begin to drop. If you don’t have a thermostat, you can set and forget, you may want to think about investing in a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat is programmable and controls both heating and cooling and can learn how to change based on the outside temperature. It’s a great way to keep your home comfortable and save money. If you’re interested in getting a smart thermostat installed in your home, talk to one of our professionals at Farrell Plumbing & Cooling, Inc. 

Replace Air Filters 

Air filters are meant to provide a clean, healthy airflow throughout your living spaces. They are your first line of defense against dirt, dust, and allergens getting into your air. If your air filter is not clean it impacts the efficiency of your HVAC system. So, it is important to replace your air filter every 90 days or every season. Replacing your air filters in a timely manner will provide you with cleaner air and help you save on energy costs. 

Keep Your Home Clean 

An HVAC system is designed to pick up dirt, dust, and other allergens to provide your home with fresh air. A deep clean of your home will reduce the number of pollutants in the air which can trigger allergies or asthma for some people. Good housekeeping will also minimize the amount of dirt, dust, and debris that gets cycled through the HVAC system allowing your air filters to last longer and work more efficiently. 

Schedule Regular Check Ups 

For your HVAC system to work more efficiently and to prevent major problems from occurring schedule a fall maintenance appointment. The service technicians at Farrell Plumbing & Cooling will perform precision tune-up, safety check, a variety of maintenance tasks and notify you if there are any issues.
