After the stress of performing all summer, your heating and cooling system may need some attention this fall. Here’s a quick checklist from the professionals at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning of things you can do that can help keep you warm and save some energy.
Sarasota, FL (September 23, 2015) – Fall officially starts today and even if the weather hasn’t changed dramatically yet, the professionals at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® say now is a good time to run down the fall checklist for your heating and cooling system. There are simple things you can do to help make sure your system operates at peak performance all season long.
- Replace your air filters.
A clogged or dirty filter can make your system work harder, which uses more energy. This can also lead to damage of your system.
- Make sure air vents and registers are not blocked by rugs or furniture. You want to make sure air can move freely around the room.
- Replace the batteries in your programmable thermostat to ensure it operates all season.
Now is also a good time to consider upgrading to a Wi-Fi enabled thermostat, putting control at your fingertips on your smart phone.
- Get a tune-up.
We recommend having a professional clean and inspect your heating and cooling system twice a year. The start of fall is a good time to get this maintenance done, before the cold weather arrives. A professional can perform an inspection of your system that can help extend the useful product life and can help reduce the frequency and severity of breakdowns.
