Fall HVAC Maintenance Checklist, Alliance, Ohio

Because you’ll rely on your furnace to keep you warm all winter long, take some time in the fall to prepare the HVAC system for all the hard work it’ll be doing. Annual maintenance will go a long way in ensuring that your heating functions reliably in the months to come. Use the guide below to handle these preparations like a seasoned professional.

How to Prepare Furnaces for Winter

What to DIY

There are approachable tasks you can tackle to keep your system operating through the cold months. Begin by cleaning all the vents around the house so the system won’t blow dust, then clear a space of at least six inches around them to promote uninhibited air flow. Also, consider upgrading your thermostat. A programmable or a smart thermostat will schedule out furnaces adjustments so the system functions more efficiently without sacrificing comfort. For example, it will turn down the heat every day while you’re at work and while you sleep, which will save you on your monthly utility bills and extend your system’s lifespan.

Schedule a Professional Maintenance Service

furnacesEvery year, your heating system should get a preventive maintenance service from an HVAC contractor. During this appointment, your technician will inspect and clean the system. Their inspection will include looking at all the individual parts such as the thermostat setting, electrical connections, the fan, and the motor. If they find anything that is broken or worn, they’ll recommend the necessary furnace repair. During the cleaning, they’ll replace your air filter, clean the coil and lubricate all the moving parts.
