4 Tips for Preparing Your HVAC System for Winter

With fall almost behind us and winter approaching quickly, it’s time to think about preparing your HVAC system for the cooler months. As temperatures drop, you can run into problems if you don’t prep your HVAC system –  even if you have the most dependable equipment.

Preparing your HVAC can lower utility costs and decrease energy consumption during the fall and winter months.

Here are a few tips:

Routine Maintenance Check

Have an HVAC technician perform a routine maintenance check to ensure your equipment is functioning effectively so you won’t experience any unexpected downtime. Repair any leaks in piping, air ducts and fittings.

Replace Filters

Changing your HVAC filters once a month is essential. Having a clean filter during the colder months can help make sure your heat reaches all areas of your business.

Inspect and Clean Ducts

Ductwork should be inspected and cleaned regularly to ensure optimal heating. Any cracks or holes in air ducts can create heat and energy loss. Not to mention, dirty ducts can bring bacteria and allergens into your building.

Install a Programmable Thermostat

A web or app based controlled thermostat allows you to maintain settings during and after business hours. To receive maximum efficiency, set your thermostat to 68 during the day and 60 at night. This will save you heating costs.
