It’s time to say goodbye to the summer months. Some of you may begrudgingly grab your sweatshirts out of storage, while others have spent days trying to decide which hoodie will go best with your first pumpkin spice latte of the season. Regardless of how fall makes you feel, it’s on its way—and winter is right behind. Pepper AC & Htg Inc has a few tips for you that give you the chance to enjoy the fall and keep your space cozy until next spring. Along with booking your routine air conditioner service from Pepper AC & Htg Inc, use this checklist to get ready for the change in season.
Take Care of Your Air Filter.
Your AC worked hard for you through the hot Justin summer. Before you give your AC a vacation for the cooler months, check your air filter and replace it if it’s dirty. This will help your air conditioner run more efficiently and keep dust and pollutants from traveling through your house as the seasons change.
Let Some Fresh Air In.
Now that the temps are decreasing, open the windows and enhance your indoor air quality. The air in your home can be several times more polluted than outdoor air, so take this chance to let in some fresh air before winter’s chill sets in.
Be Sure Vents and Registers are Clear.
Sometimes furniture gets moved around as you switch from outdoor living in the nice weather to being inside more as the days get cooler and shorter. Ensure that none of your vents or registers are blocked as you rearrange. This will make it more difficult for your HVAC system to do what it needs to do and could cause an unwelcomed hike in your energy costs.
Check for Air Leaks.
The heat of summer can take a toll on weather-stripping. Look around your windows and doors for leaks that could allow heated air out of your home this winter. Air leaks are responsible for reducing heating efficiency and increasing your heating bills. Stop leaks by replacing caulking and weather-stripping where needed.
Schedule a Furnace Checkup.
Once your AC is ready to step aside for the winter, it’s time to take care of your winter workhorse: your furnace. Call Pepper AC & Htg Inc to perform preventive maintenance checkup. We’ll ensure your furnace is clean and operating smoothly before winter rolls in. During your preventive maintenance, we’ll also detect and let you know what needs to be done to fix any potential challenges that may come up when your furnace is working full-time.
Test Your Carbon Monoxide Detector.
Before heating season begins, test your carbon monoxide detector. It is beneficial to make sure your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are operating properly and have a new set of batteries installed.
