Prepping Your HVAC Unit For Fall

Fall is the season of comfort food, cozy sweaters and cooler weather. Because of temperature changes, it’s important to keep up with regular maintenance of different appliances around your home – especially your HVAC unit. Ensuring that you take all necessary steps to prepare your heating system for the change of seasons can help prolong the life of your unit and ultimately save you money in the long run.

Scheduling regular tune-ups with your local HVAC team at Southern Air is a simple way to guarantee that your heating and cooling system is ready for weather transitions throughout the year. Proper routine maintenance is the best way to protect your home from an urgent heating or air conditioning emergency.

So, what exactly does an AC tune-up entail?

Professional HVAC Maintenance

When an experienced technician comes out to perform a service on your home’s heating system, they’ll thoroughly check over a variety of different components. Filters and small parts can be replaced as necessary and a detailed inspection will be done on your outside unit. The technician will also look over and work on other important elements, including:

  • Cleaning coils
  • Inspecting air ducts
  • Checking electrical connections
  • Checking for damages or leaks
  • Testing your thermostat

Before the service is completed, the tech will test your system and make sure that it’s operating as efficiently as possible. This is a simple yet important step to ensure your system is functioning properly and to address any last-minute problems as soon as possible.

Always ask questions and voice any concerns as they arise, as HVAC maintenance can be unfamiliar territory for many people. It’s absolutely essential to stay on top of regular tune-ups to prevent any sudden issues and protect the quality of your unit over its lifespan.

Looking Over Your System

It’s necessary as a homeowner to keep up with simple air conditioning maintenance routines, like getting in the habit of changing your system’s air filters on a regular basis to preserve good air quality inside your home. Switching out your air filters about every 90 days can help avoid dust and debris buildup inside your system, protecting it from damage over time and prolonging its reliability.

Taking time in advance to prepare your unit for seasonal weather changes before the temperature dramatically falls (or rises) is important for a few reasons. Switching your HVAC settings from cooling straight into high-powered heating can cause an unnecessary strain on your system and increase the risk of an issue. Instead of doing this, you should gradually transition the temperature on your thermostat to keep comfortable airflow in your home without overdoing it.

Start off by turning your AC off as the weather gets cooler, and slowly increase the heat as needed over a period of time. As temperatures rise again later in the year, repeat the process vice versa to give your system a head start on the new season.
