It’s officially fall! While it’s hard to believe that summer has come and gone, we are moving into the fall season and it is more important than ever to ensure that your heating system is working efficiently and will be able to carry you through the chilly autumn and winter months.
We have been lucky to have some pretty mild weather so far this month, when we’d often already been seeing strong gusts and chilly mornings and evenings, but heating season is right around the corner and we want to make sure that all of our clients will be comfortable over the next several months in their home. Here are a few of our top tips for maintaining your heating system.
Schedule maintenance: It’s important to have your system maintained at least once a year. While summer and winter tend to be our busiest seasons now is the time to schedule maintenance for your heating system.
Make necessary repairs: Following regular maintenance, there may be repairs to your system that need to be made in order to keep your system running in tiptop shape. While repairs can be a financial investment, it is far less costly to take care of small repairs than dealing with problems once they become catastrophic.
Change air filters: Air filters should be cleaned or replaced between each season, and doing so can help to keep your system running efficiently. If you have not already done so for the fall season, go ahead and change your air filter to ensure that warm air can easily flow throughout your home and to improve the indoor air quality of your house.
Replace faulty systems: When properly maintained, your heating system should last for years, but eventually it will need to be replaced. If your home still has its original heating system, or if you have noticed efficiency slowly decreasing over the past few winter seasons, it is likely time to invest in a replacement. Our team of HVAC professionals can help you to decide on a unit that is perfect for your home and lifestyle and work to have it installed before the start of the winter season.
