Fall HVAC Maintenance Tips

The kids are back in school and fall is quickly approaching.  Now is the perfect time to do some routine maintenance on your HVAC system.  The last thing you want is for your system to break down in the middle of winter, so some preventative maintenance now can keep you protected.

Dirty HVAC filters restrict airflow and reduce the entire efficiency of the HVAC system.  If you have not changed the air filters of your system for a while, now is a great time to do it.  It is best to change your filters monthly.

When you start transitioning from cooling to heating, it’s a good idea to reprogram your thermostat.  In order to save money with a programmable thermostat, it is essential to make sure that they are set correctly.

Have you had your HVAC system serviced lately?   It is best to have your system professionally serviced twice a year.  A well maintained system will function efficiently and use less energy.  Give us a call today to schedule a preventative maintenance appointment at (859)623-9295 or (859)551-1454.  It is a good idea to purchase a maintenance agreement that will provide you with semi-annual inspections at a lower price.

Consider purchasing a new system if yours is getting quite a bit of age on it or isn’t performing as well as it should.  It will be easier to get in with an HVAC company during the fall than in the busier months ahead.  Once winter hits, the demand for HVAC service will increase greatly and if you have an issue you could be left without heat.  It is better to prepare your system as much as you can to avoid system break downs during the winter months.
