There are common HVAC issues that occur in the fall. With this in mind, there are several things you can do in order to be prepared for colder temperatures. Here is a fall HVAC maintenance checklist that you can use to ensure your home comfort.
Replace Air Filters
Remember, you need to replace your air filters every 30-90 days. This allows your HVAC unit to perform with maximum efficiency. Also, it prevents circulating unclean air throughout your home. Finally, consider buying high-efficiency air filters. These air filters are designed to trap more small particles than traditional ones.
Inspect Gas Furnace for Leaks
First, you should check your gas furnace for leaks. If you detect a rotten egg smell, you may have a gas leak. If you do smell gas, CALL AIR GROUP OR YOUR GAS PROVIDER IMMEDIATELY.
HVAC units such as outdoor Heat Pumps, underperform or break because of debris. Fortunately, clearing your HVAC unit of leaves, grass, twigs, and snow can prevent this.
Additionally, you should clear space around your generators. You need to maintain a 2 foot perimeter around your generator, so clear away leaves, snow, and anything else that may prevent air intake.
People use Daylight Savings as a reminder to replace the batteries in their carbon monoxide and smoke detectors. Batteries must be changed at least once a year.
Monitor Unusual Noises
Are your HVAC unit, water heater, and other home systems making strange noises? If they are, this may be a sign that a part might not be working properly. Fortunately, an HVAC expert technician will be able to tell you whether or not it is more beneficial to repair or replace the system.
