5 Tips to get your HVAC system Fall ready!!

 

Replace Your Air Filter

Filters are crucial for airflow, efficiency, and air quality. When your filter is dirty or clogged, it makes the system work inefficiently and increases your energy costs. It also degrades indoor air quality, exacerbating asthma and allergy symptoms. Make sure you replace your filter every month. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, this can result in 5 to 15 percent energy savings.

Check Your Thermostat

A thermostat that’s not working correctly will affect your heating and air conditioning system’s efficiency. Make sure the thermostat responds appropriately when you turn it on and is set to maximize efficiency, especially during the times when your home will be unoccupied. Invest in a programmable thermostat if you don’t have one already to manipulate the heating of your home better.

Add Insulation

Insulation helps keep warm indoor air from escaping and cold air from creeping into your home. Install additional insulation in areas notorious for having inadequate insulation such as the attic and crawl space.

Seal Doors and Windows

The colder outdoor air can enter your home through doors and windows that aren’t sealed. Check the edges and bottom of your doors and windows to make sure they’re draft-free. Install caulk or weatherstripping around the areas where you can feel drafts. You can also add door sweeps to the base of drafty doors.

Schedule an HVAC Tune-Up

Your home’s heater requires a professional tune-up before it gets a long workout during the winter. You should include the tune-up in your fall home maintenance checklist because HVAC companies get extremely busy once winter sets in. During the tune-up, Morgan Mechanical will find and fix potential problems so you avoid staying without heat on a cold day.
