When the leaves start changing and the humidity of Summer finally breaks, you want to make sure that your HVAC system is ready for the Fall and Winter. But what steps can you take to make sure that your system is ready as cooler weather moves in? Shenandoah has got tips to help you get ready!
Set Your Smart Thermostat
Assuming you have a smart thermostat that allows you to program temperatures depending on what day or time of day, you may need to update your program for the new season. In addition to the temperature, you may also need to make adjustments based on your families schedule. For instance, are the kids back in school and the house will be empty for the mornings/afternoons? Adjust your thermostat accordingly.
Time to Change Your Filter
When was the last time you changed your filter? If you hesitated to answer the question, it’s been too long! Depending on the filter you purchased, you should change your filter every 30 days. Or in some cases, every 90 days.
Check Insulations in Your Attic
Your home could potentially benefit from additional insulation in your attic. You may want to consider adding more insulation, depending on the cost of doing so.
Schedule an HVAC Maintenance Appointment
It’s never a bad thing to have an HVAC professional come out and take a look at your system. While everything may seem to be running efficiently, a professional HVAC technician is able to diagnosis any potential problems and provide routine maintenance on your system.
