When the seasons change and the weather begin to cool, it becomes important to prepare your home for the colder temperatures ahead.
We can show you how you can save on your monthly energy bill, and also show you how you can save on the costs of repairs by making small changes.
First things first, you should execute an HVAC efficiency plan. If you are not exactly sure where to begin, here is our END of the SUMMER checklist for your home and HVAC system.
USE YOUR CEILING FANS
As the temperatures cool down you no longer have the need to use your air conditioner as much as you did in the summer months.
Use your ceiling fans to stay cool. You can even create a cross breeze by opening some windows in your home. This will save you money on your energy costs, as well as lighten the load on your HVAC system.
CHANGE YOUR FILTER(S)
You should always change your filter(s) regularly over the course of the year. It is also a great idea to make this routine a part of your end-of-the-summer checklist.
If you have neglected to change your filter(s) during the summer months, chances are that your filter(s) have become very soiled.
The bad news is that the residue on your filter(s) is being spread throughout your entire living space. Changing your filter(s) on a strict schedule will keep the interior of your home at a much better air quality level.
CLEAN YOUR OUTDOOR UNIT
Take care of your outside unit before the weather turns cold.
The first thing that you should do is perform a thorough visual inspection. Then, clear away any leaves, grass clippings, or other debris that may have collected around the unit over the summer. Trim away any trees or bushes that may obstruct airflow or impede performance.
It’s always a good idea to contact a professional to perform a thorough cleaning of the coils and condenser.
SCHEDULE YOUR FURNACE TUNE-UP
The busiest day for HVAC companies is the first cold day of the season. There is nothing worse than turning on your furnace for the first time and discovering there’s an issue. That is why we recommend getting your furnace tune-up as soon as September.
When you get your furnace tune-up early you can uncover and fix any issues before they cause a shutdown. This will save you on emergency costs and save you any discomfort of being stuck in the cold until the issues can be fixed.
