Remember last year’s almost snow-free winter in the Northeast? According to Fox News “Winter looks ‘cold and snowy’ with some ‘crazy in-between,’ Farmers’ Almanac claims.
Here are 5 HVAC Fall Maintenance Tips to get you ready for the colder and snowy weather ahead. Perform these tips now while the weather is still nice. Get it done now, and have peace of mind later!
1) Schedule an Inspection
Routine service will help your HVAC system run stable. Fall is an excellent time to schedule maintenance. This prepares the HVAC system for the rough winter months.
Schedule service before you turn the heat on for the season.
2) Seal Drafts and Leaks
Check your home for drafty windows and doors. Drafts don’t just make people feel cold, they can also hurt HVAC energy efficiency. To take care of leaks and drafts, try sealing cracks with new caulking and replace weather stripping if you notice tears or cracks.
3) Change your air filter
Give your furnace a fresh start this fall and add a fresh filter.
4) Adjust the thermostat
According to utility companies, the best scenario for a winter day, when the family is at home is 68 degrees. Some recommend lowering the temperature to 55 degrees at night, but others suggest 65 degrees.
5) Turn the Temperature Down Before You Go To Bed
As a general, the closer a thermostat’s temperature is to the temperature outside, the more money you will save. Turning the settings down a few degrees will help you save on energy costs. Overworking a unit can also cause malfunctions.
