Summer is quickly winding down here in Baltimore, Maryland. Goodbye heat and humidity. Hello cool, crisp fall mornings. As you can imagine, your HVAC needs change drastically with the changing weather. Like most homeowners, you have been relying heavily on your air conditioner these past several months. Who can blame you? It’s been hot and humid. Yuck! But fall brings with it new HVAC challenges: namely cold weather.
So how do you prepare your HVAC system for cool weather? Let’s find out…
Preparing an HVAC system for Fall
- HVAC Filter: Believe it or not, the average home should have its HVAC air filters replaced every three months. Homes with pets, smokers, or those suffering from allergies should have its HVAC air filters replaced monthly. This will not only help make your HVAC system more efficient, but it will also improve the indoor air quality (IAQ) of your home. While you should replace your air filter monthly, most homeowners fail to do so. At the very least, you should replace your HVAC filter before each new season.
- HVAC Maintenance: Last, but certainly not least, comes HVAC maintenance. Did you know that 34% of your electricity bills are directly associated with your home’s heating. Wow! This is why it is so important to ensure your HVAC system is as energy efficient as possible. And this is where HVAC maintenance comes into play. Regular maintenance will also help minimize costly breakdowns while extending the life of your HVAC system. That’s what we like to call a win-win!
