3 Winter Maintenance Tips from Heating Repair Professionals, Lincoln, Alabama

Having the heat cut out during the height of winter can be aggravating; but don’t worry, Alabama Cooling & Heating in Birmingham wants you to know there are steps you can take to ensure this never happens. By performing a few of the maintenance tips below in preparation for the colder weather, you can avoid costly heating repairs and service interruptions that can leave your home in the cold. 

3 Tips for Avoiding Heating Repairs This Winter 

1. Change Air Filters 

All of that pollen, pet dander, and airborne dust you track into your home throughout the year doesn’t just leave on its own: it finds its way into your heating and cooling system’s air ducts. Eventually, such debris will be filtered out of the air by your heating system’s air vents, which is why they need to be cleaned and replaced regularly. Having dirty air filters decreases your indoor air quality, as well as reduces the efficiency of your heating system. Inspect your system’s air filters and replace them as needed before the cold snap. 

2. Proper Thermostat Usage

However, this creates unnecessary stress on your heating and cooling system and can be a drain on your energy consumption. In such cases, it’s important to gradually increase the heat in your home, keeping your thermostat at a steady temperature. If you’re having trouble managing the temperature in your home, investing in a programmable thermostat may help make your HVAC unit run more efficiently. 

3. Invest in Heating & Cooling Inspections

One of the best ways you can avoid costly heating repairs during the winter is by hiring a professional to inspect your system prior to the colder months. Having an expert look over your machine, perform preventative maintenance, and replace any failing parts will increase your HVAC unit’s efficiency, as well as prevent costly repairs from cropping up in colder weather. 

By providing your heating and air conditioning components with the care mentioned above, you’ll be able to increase the efficiency of your home and avoid costly repairs.
