3 Simple Steps to Prepare Your HVAC System for Winter, Juneau, Alaska

Fall has arrived. Before the long, cold winter sets in, take time to prepare your heating and cooling systems now. With help from an HVAC contractor, you’ll ensure the furnace works efficiently throughout the coming season, and the air conditioner is ready to use once the summer returns. Here’s what you need to do.

How to Ready Your HVAC System for Winter

1. Clean the Exterior Components

Prevent the HVAC system from overheating or breaking down due to obstructions by cleaning the parts that sit outside. Autumn offers pleasant temperatures to do this. Brush off all the leaves and debris collecting on top and around the components; you can also use a hose for the task. Trim branches of nearby shrubs back, so they don’t fall and damage the unit. 

2. Change the Filters
