Summer is officially over, this means it is time to prepare for those fall duties that will need to be completed before the temperatures drop and the snow flies. It is indeed a sad occasion having to say goodbye to your air conditioner for the season, it has served you well keeping you cool and comfortable throughout the hot summer months. Thanks to Evansville‘s efficient air conditioning repairservice, you kept cool all summer long. That is but a fading memory, cooler weather is on its way and you need to prepare for winter.
Before temperatures drop to below freezing, you will want to install new air filters in your HVAC system. Dirty air filters reduce your system’s efficiency, leaving you with an HVAC system that works too hard and costs more money to run. Be sure you mark the date that you replaced the filters for easy reference.
Take a separate thermometer and place it next to your thermostat to ensure both have the same reading. This way, when you set your thermostat to 68 degrees this winter, it will actually be set at 68 degrees. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, there are plenty of good reasons to get one.
Turn on your system’s fan and head to your attic. Here you will need to look and listen for any air escaping from the ductwork. If this seems to much of a hassle, call us and schedule a maintenance check. In fact, it might be a good idea to schedule a maintenance check anyway. We make sure all your HVAC parts are in proper working order, ensuring you will stay warm and well over the winter months. Why don’t you go ahead and give us a call.
