HVAC Fall Furnace Maintenance Tips

It’s amazing how fast the time flies. Just a weeks ago you were probably running the AC, and now you’re probably thinking about turning on the heat. But not so fast! Have you completed your HVAC fall maintenance check up yet?

To keep yourself and your family comfortable and your system in great shape, now’s the time to learn some simple tips to keep your HVAC running at peak performance during the winter.

Filter. No matter the season, regular filter changes are the best way to keep your system running properly and keep your air as healthy as possible. At the very least, you should change your filter once before spring and winter season comes.

Leaves. If you have an air conditioner or heat pump on your property, make sure you keep your leaves and any debris away from the outdoor component to maintain proper airflow. Incorrect airflow can result in decreased performance and potential system breakdowns.

Thermostat. To lower your utility bills, either stick to your planned comfort schedule or if you don’t hold a programmable thermostat, set the temperature and leave it that way. Constantly changing the temperature can result in higher utility bills.

Indoor Clean-Up. Fall is another allergy season. It’s better to clean your indoor space to make sure that dust and allergens from outdoors aren’t living on your surfaces and lowering indoor air quality.

Maintenance. Ensure that you schedule maintenance with your local Oregon, Washington, and Nevada HVAC contractor. This is the best way to secure proper performance levels throughout the winter.

Here are the things your heating contractor will do during a fall furnace preventative maintenance appointment:

  1. I totally agree that regularly replacing or cleaning the air filter would certainly get your furnace up and running always. Regular maintenance of these filters would ensure that you indeed have clean air and will also reduce the probability of you having to pay for a repair. If I have my own furnace, I would definitely make sure to change the filters at least twice a year. Thanks.
