Fall is just around the horizon. This is the ideal time of year to prepare your HVAC and furnace for peak use. Following some easy-to-do HVAC maintenance tips ensures that the home interior stays at a balanced temperature as it gets cooler.
Change or Clean the Filter
Change or clean the filter on a monthly basis. If you haven’t been doing so, then early autumn is the time to begin. Make a routine of inspecting the filter on a set schedule, such as the first or mid-point of every month.
Clean the Outdoor Unit
The outdoor component of the HVAC unit tends to be overlooked. Fall leaves and other debris can get lodged in the vents and openings, creating a fire hazard. The openings may also accrue dirt and dust. Rake away the leaves and wipe the vents clean.
