Before the chilly winds of fall start to blow, that’s the time to take a look at your HVAC system and make sure it’s ready. HVAC service in Yorktown, VA, is our area of expertise at Comfortable Climate Heating & Air Conditioning. We’re going to use this post to pass along tips on preventative maintenance.
The first thing you want to do is make sure your unit and vents are free from debris, such as leaves. This will leave room for snow and ice removal. Also, ensure that you clear at least three feet around your outdoor unit for free-flowing air and ease of access for any HVAC service that may be needed.
Install new air filters that feature electrostatic charges. These are very effective at trapping particles. After you’ve done that, check your system by turning on the heater so you can identify if you need HVAC service.
Additionally, you should check and upgrade your insulation, have your chimneys cleaned, check heat exchangers for leaks, and set your humidistats. As a final check, schedule a combustion-efficiency test with an experienced company. Doing all this will allow you to face the fall with a smile on your face.
