Prepare Your HVAC System for Fall!
Welcome, fall! It’s time to unleash the cool-weather clothing from the back closet. Your closet isn’t the only thing that’s changing. Your HVAC system is about to undergo the big change from cooling to heating. Our winter weather in Anderson, SC can be mild compared to other states but, you still want to keep your family nice and cozy on cold nights. The best way to do that is to take care of your HVAC system.
Here are our top tips to prep your HVAC system for fall:
1. Change Your Air Filter
Fall is a great time to change your air filter. Not only do air filters help your HVAC system run efficiently, they also protect your family and home from allergens and pollution. A clean, efficient HVAC system is especially important during the cooler months.
2. Check Your Outdoor Unit for Fallen Leaves
The air is cooling down and the leaves are falling – all around your outdoor unit! Clear away any fallen leaves, debris, or encroaching shrubbery from your outdoor HVAC unit. If anything has fallen inside your unit, give AirOne a call at (864) 617-6883 and we’ll help clear up the problem. We service Anderson, SC, and all surrounding areas.
3. Clean Your Vents and Ducts
Air vents and ducts circulate air throughout your home. They work best when they are clean and clear of obstructions. Blocked ducts force your HVAC system to work harder, decreasing efficiency. Use a vacuum to tidy up your vents and wipe them with a damp cloth.
4. Invest in a Smart Thermostat
Smart thermostats are more than just modern wall-candy. They are an excellent want to increase efficiency and decrease your utility bills. Programmable thermostats give you full reign over your home’s temperature – even when you’re not at home. They let you create a temperature schedule to increase your comfort and putting less stress on your HVAC system.
5. Schedule an HVAC Tune-Up
Preventative maintenance is the key to avoiding breakdowns and frequent repairs. Just like you need checkups to stay healthy, your HVAC system needs preventative maintenance to keep running efficiently. We suggest maintenance twice a year. The spring and fall are ideal as many of the breakdowns we see in summer and winter are due to issues that could have been easily avoided with basic preventative maintenance. Call AirOne Heating & Air at (864) 617-6883 to schedule your fall HVAC tune-up. We handle all manner of HVAC maintenance, repairs, and replacements in Anderson, SC, and beyond.
