Similar to a vehicle, your HVAC system requires routine maintenance to function at its best and provide optimal performance. We’ve put together a Fall HVAC Maintenance Checklist for your fall planning. Consistent preventive maintenance also aids in prolonging the lifespan of your system and can identify possible issues before they become a major expense or require part replacement.
It’s essential to start your fall HVAC maintenance checklist with your filter. A dirty filter can lead to a lot of problems, such as excessive strain on your heater, increased heating costs, and a shorter lifespan for your equipment. To ensure an efficient return-air system, make sure that your HAVC filter has a cover over the slot. It’s recommended to replace one-inch pleated filters once a month. If you’re not sure what type of filter to use, reach out to us for a recommendation based on your specific system. Remember, filters may need more attention, especially since our air conditioners were working overtime this year. If your home is subject to extra dust or if you have pets, you may need to change your filters more than once a month.
To ensure your HVAC runs smoothly and efficiently this fall and winter, keeping it clean and free of dirt is essential. Regularly vacuuming the dust from the air registers around your home will help keep unwanted dirt and dust out of your unit.
Maintaining a clear space around outdoor HVAC units is crucial to ensure proper airflow. To achieve this, make sure to remove any objects, debris, or vegetation within a few feet of the unit. This will help your heater and AC function efficiently and effectively this fall.
When there are air leaks in your home, warm air can escape, and cool air can seep in, which not only wastes the heated air from your heater but also extends the time it takes to heat your home. To avoid this, it’s important to seal any air leaks to prevent cool air from getting in and warm air from escaping.
If your preferred temperature setting on the thermostat doesn’t provide sufficient comfort, it could be due to a faulty component or a broken unit. If this is the case, it is time to call us before your issues get worse.
To ensure optimal performance and safety, it’s recommended to have an HVAC professional inspect and make any necessary adjustments to your HVAC. Routine HVAC maintenance will also help extend the life of your unit and help you avoid emergency repair costs. For all your maintenance needs, AERO is here to help.
Regular maintenance provides a less obvious advantage of improving indoor air quality since unclean filters, coils, and parts within your HVAC system can negatively impact air quality. Regularly cleaning your HVAC components substantially reduces indoor air contamination, resulting in a healthier and cozier fall environment.
