As the seasons change it’s important, you take time to do some necessary chores that will help your air conditioner regroup and power through the next season. These are quick, simple tasks that will make the life of your HVAC easier.
Clean Your Outdoor Unit: This is a quick, easy task you can do by taking a brush, a hose, and a little elbow grease to your outdoor unit. We suggest homeowners do this every few months, especially as seasons change. All you have to do is wash the dirt out of your HVAC unit, and brush away and stuck on grime. This act will allow your HVAC to breathe better and function more efficiently for you during the fall weather.
Change Filters: Filters can save you as much as 15% on your energy bill. A new filter is an excellent way to respond to a new season. It can catch all the air pollutants that are common to fall like ragweed, dust, and pollen, and keep them from circulating in your home.
Clean Your Indoor Home: There’s “spring cleaning,” but there should also be “fall cleaning” as well. It’s just as important that you make sure your home is clear of allergens in the fall as it is in the spring. So, take some time when you have a chance to clear your home of dust, dirt and other pollutants.
Check For Mold: Check for the smells of mold, stagnant air, and water leaks in your home. All those can be a sign of mold, and should be taken care of as soon as possible. Cleaning mold another easy fix as you can typically use household products to remove mold, and invest in dehumidifiers to prevent the problem from occurring again!
Schedule A Professional Tune Up
What you can’t do yourself, a professional HVAC technician can do it for you. They can check your ductwork for mold or leaks, and clean it if necessary. They can optimize your HVAC for maximum efficiency and peak effectiveness. Tune ups are particularly useful as seasons change from hot to cold.
Whether you have a system that heats and cools, or if you have two separate systems it is important that you make sure they are in tip-top shape periodically through the year.
Consider A New Heater
As fall comes to Milwaukee, it provides a seasonal respite of calm, cool, weather that allows homeowners to live comfortably without the use of an HVAC. The reason why that is important is that if you need to upgrade your system, you may have to go a day or two without in home comfort.
The last thing you want during winter is your heater breaking, or shutting down, so make sure that doesn’t happen by getting a professional inspection. If someone tells you that you should invest in a new heating system, then fall is the time to do it. When winter comes your brand new heater will keep you warm and efficient.
