We’re saying goodbye to summer. Some of you may begrudgingly drag your sweatshirts out of storage, while others have spent weeks trying to determine which hoodie will go best with your first pumpkin spice latte of the season. Regardless of how you approach fall, it’s on its way—and winter is right behind. All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc has a few tips for you that give you the chance to enjoy the fall and keep your space cozy until next spring. Along with scheduling your routine air conditioner service from All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, use this checklist to prepare for the change in season.
Take Care of Your Air Filter.
Your AC worked hard for you through the hot Huntsville summer. Before you give your AC a break for the cooler season, check your air filter and change it if it’s dirty. This will help your air conditioner run more efficiently and keep dust and pollutants from circulating through your house as the seasons change.
Let Some Fresh Air In.
Now that the temperature is cooling off, open the windows and enhance your indoor air quality. The air in your home can be several times more polluted than outdoor air, so take this time to get some fresh air before winter’s chill arrives.
Be Sure Vents and Registers are Clear.
Sometimes furniture gets shifted around as you move from outdoor living in the summer to being inside more as the days get cooler and shorter. Make sure none of your vents or registers are blocked as you rearrange. This will make it a challenge for your HVAC system to do what it needs to do and could cause an unwelcomed increase in your energy costs.
Check for Air Leaks.
The heat of summer can take a toll on weather-stripping. Check around your windows and doors for leaks that could end up allowing heated air out of your home this winter. Air leaks are responsible for reducing heating efficiency and adding costs your heating bills. Halt leaks by replacing caulking and weather-stripping where needed.
Schedule a Furnace Checkup.
Once your AC is ready to take a break, it’s time to take care of your winter workhorse: your furnace. Call All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc to perform preventive maintenance checkup. We’ll make sure your furnace is clean and running smoothly before winter rolls in. During your preventive maintenance, we’ll also detect and let you know what needs to be done to fix any potential problems that may come up when your furnace is used consistently.
Test Your Carbon Monoxide Detector.
Before heating season starts, test your carbon monoxide detector. It is worth it to make sure your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are operating properly and have a brand new set of batteries installed.
Once this simple checklist is finished, you can rest and take in all the beauty and fun that fall has to offer.
