HVAC Service for Seasonal Transitions
With summer coming to a close, it may be time to start thinking whether or not your home heating and cooling system is ready for cooler temperatures. In Wilmington NC, warm autumn days can be followed by chilly nights. Check out these simple steps on how to prepare your home for a seasonal transition!
No matter the season, you should be changing your air filter every one to three months. Filters can trap mold, bacteria, and dirt that is then dispersed through your home. An HVAC unit with a dirty air filter will not heat or cool your home as well as a clean one.
Now that your air filter is clean and generating fresh air, it’s time to take a look outside. If your outdoor heating and cooling system is in an area with lush landscaping, you might want to trim it back a bit. Interference from overgrown summer shrubbery will prevent your HVAC from running optimally. Likewise, if your heating and cooling system is under a tree that sheds its leaves in the fall, these dropped leaves could get in the way of smooth operation. Take the time to clear your outdoor unit space of all fallen debris before transitioning into heat or supplemental heat to assure full functionality.
A quick HVAC service maintenance check from All-in-One Heating & Air Conditioning Services will put your mind at ease as winter approaches. This is the most important time of year to schedule a tune-up for your heating and cooling system. You don’t want to be calling an emergency hotline in the middle of a cold night when your heat won’t turn on!
Finally, take advantage of mild temperatures before the cold front comes in. Leave your windows open or run a ceiling fan in lieu of your air conditioning on days that are not quite hot or cold. It is unhealthy for your HVAC to rapidly switch between heating and cooling your home in the fall. Not to mention, this will save you a lot of money on your energy bill!
Don’t wait until it’s too late to call for your seasonal transition maintenance appointment. Prepare your home for fall and winter before the temperature drops!
