Summer is winding down, and Cypress, Texas, residents are getting ready for fall. As the weather changes, it’s important to follow some important HVAC tips to get your system ready for the new season. At Enviromax Services Inc., we understand that homeowners want their system to be in the best shape possible for fall, so we’ve laid out some easy tips to get it ready:
- Clear the Area Around Your System
Weeds and other forms of foliage thrive during the summer and can crowd the area around your outdoor system. Blockage around the area can restrict air flow, causing your system to work harder and decreasing its overall lifespan. Additionally, these weeds can attract bugs looking for warmth as the weather cools down, which doesn’t make for a good combination with your HVAC system. Before the cooler weather hits, take some time to clear away any plants that are growing too closely to your unit.
- Adjust Your Thermostat
As fall gets closer and closer, the settings on your thermostat don’t necessarily need to be the same as they were during the middle of summer. Set the temperature on your thermostat to create a comfortable environment that makes sense with the coming changes in weather. This keeps your system from running as often, reducing the amount of overall wear and tear.
- Change Your Filter
With pollen and shedding pets, summer can be a bad time for your air filter. As the filter clogs, not only can it lead to problems with your indoor air quality, but it can also make it more difficult for your system to disperse air throughout your home. As the new season arrives, change your air filter to ensure that there won’t be any left-over debris filtering throughout your home.
- Schedule a Pre-Season Heater Inspection
As fall arrives and eventually turns into winter, you’ll be needing your heater more often to keep your home comfortable. The last thing you want to discover is that your heater isn’t working when you need it most. To avoid this, schedule a pre-season inspection with a Cypress HVAC company. This allows a technician to address any issues that could prevent your heater from working during the new season.
