Preparing for Winter
Before the winter months hit full force, it’s important to have your HVAC system inspected by a professional to make sure everything is in working order. If you’re more the do-it-yourself type, here are a few tips on how to prepare your HVAC system for the coldest months of the year.
Replace the Air Filter
The winter months are not only known for their cold temperatures, they are also known for the time of year when most people get sick. One thing you can do to help both your family and your HVAC system is to change the air filter.
The air filter in your HVAC system is responsible for preventing dust particles out of your HVAC system, but it is also responsible for filtering the air that enters your home. If the air filter hasn’t been changed in a few months, it probably isn’t doing its job. Not only can dust particles cause damage to your HVAC system, but unfiltered air, especially in the winter months, could lead to your family getting sick.
Inspect Air Vents
Air vents play an important role in your HVAC system, unfortunately, they are easy to miss in your winter preparations. Make sure that your air vents aren’t being blocked by furniture and even go the extra mile to vacuum any dust that may have collected over time. If there is dust or other debris preventing air flow, it could make your HVAC system work harder which, in turn, could wear the system down.
Inspect Air Ducts
Your air ducts are different than the air vents in your home. The ducts are what connect the vents to the HVAC system, and even with the best air filters, dust, allergens, and even mold can sometimes sneak through and make a home in your air ducts. When you turn on the heat during the winter, sometimes the particles that have collected in your ducts will react to the heat.
Fall is the best time to have your air ducts cleaned before you need to turn on the heat for the winter. Make us your go-to HVAC company for everything HVAC, including duct cleaning!

Check for Noises

If, when you turn on your system to check for noises, you hear something unusual, call an HVAC contractor right away to check things out. You don’t want to wait until it’s too late.
