3 Ways to Prepare Your HVAC System for Fall, Glastonbury, Connecticut

As the temperatures drop, it’s important to make sure your HVAC system is ready for the increased workload. There are some essential HVAC maintenance steps you should take every fall to ensure your home is comfortable. Use the following tips to keep the system running smoothly this season.

How to Prepare the HVAC System for Fall

1. Adjust the Thermostat

Your thermostat is still probably calibrated for the summer months, meaning the air conditioning may be needlessly running when it’s cold outside. A programmable thermostat will let you set different temperatures throughout the day, and it can save money to turn the system down at night. Regularly check the thermostat as the weather gets colder and adjust its settings accordingly.

2. Change Filters

hvac maintenanceIt’s recommended to change HVAC filters every 90 days. Instead of keeping track of specific dates, just remember to perform this task at the beginning of every season. 

Fall is the perfect time to install a new filter to make sure the system is running at its optimal efficiency. You can put this step on your autumn checklist along with gutter cleaning and pumpkin picking. 

3. Clean the Outdoor Unit

Make sure the outdoor unit isn’t covered in leaves, dead grass, or other debris. This HVAC maintenance task prevents clogged ducts and screens from becoming fire hazards. It can also deter pests and improve the unit’s efficiency. Keeping the appliance clean will also minimize repair costs in the long run.
