Some of the popular fall activities include apple and pumpkin picking, looking at foliage, and going on hayrides. Unfortunately, fall doesn’t only mean fun. Making sure your home is ready for winter and dealing with dropping temperatures is another common fall event. Here are some common fall HVAC problems you should be aware of.
Outside Drains Getting Clogged
There may be several reasons why the drains in your home are clogged. However, the biggest culprit of the drains outside of your home getting backed up is leaves. Leaves and rain often combine to block your sewer drains. In order to avoid this, use a rake to remove leaves around storm drains before a storm. This can prevent issues from happening.
Are you in a flood area? If so, you want to prevent your sump pump from losing power during a storm. Fortunately, Air Group’s whole-house generators help keep the power on during a storm.
Do you hear a strange rattling sound from your HVAC unit? More likely than not, this means there is something in your outdoor HVAC system such as a small twig.
Repair or Replace?
With winter right around the corner, it’s time to evaluate your heating needs. Does your HVAC system work efficiently? Is it reliable? It’s always best to plan ahead, so now is the time to deal with any heating issues. Consider whether or not you need to repair or replace your current heating system.
Dirty Air Filters
Do you know that dirty air filters make your HVAC system operate less efficiently? Make sure you change your air filters every 30 to 90 days. This ensures that your system is pumping in clean air into your home.
