Prepping your HVAC system in Frisco, TX, to brace for the upcoming cooler months can help prolong your HVAC’s lifespan. Unfortunately, most residential, and commercial HVAC owners neglect to perform the necessary preparations for these yearly seasonal transitions. Be better prepared for the cooler temperatures with these three tips.
Check Your Furnace’s Condition
While the temperatures are still mild outside, test out your furnace by switching it on and off at least three times. You don’t want to just switch it on during the first cold day only for your furnace to be unresponsive. It’s not uncommon for objects or critters to get stuck inside your ventilation system, potentially causing bad smells or damage.
Check Your HVAC’s Thermostat
Similar to how you inspect your furnace before days where you have to use it, inspect your HVAC system’s thermostat and try programming it to see if all of the features are working properly. Program your thermostat to switch on in the morning time when you leave for work and before you get home. If you’ve been using an outdated thermostat, consider shopping for a smart one.
Get Preventive Maintenance
Perform regular maintenance on your HVAC system at least once each year. Your furnace produces carbon monoxide and also works with natural gas to emit heat. These are two highly volatile components that untrained homeowners should not play with, so get a professional HVAC technician to inspect your system for any issues.
Prepping your HVAC system for the cold months of the year is as important as tuning it up for the summer heat. If you’re unsure of what parts you need to inspect or replace, contact All Service Heating & Air today to speak with one of our qualified representatives.
