Before a cold front arrives, take a few steps to prepare your heating and air conditioning system for the change in weather.
The cold season is fast approaching, so make sure your heating and air conditioning system is ready to switch to heating your home or office. Try the following tips to help with this transition:
An HVAC technician should look over your heater to make sure it's ready to work this winter. Depending on how your heater works, you'll need to make sure its exhaust system is venting properly and removing carbon monoxide from its combustion area. You'll also want to check the wiring to ensure there is little opportunity for any electrical shorts.
You can think of your thermostat as the gatekeeper of your HVAC system. Even if the heater or air conditioner works properly, if the thermostat malfunctions, your HVAC system can't heat or cool your home or office. So before the winter season, make sure your thermostat is working well. One important thing you need to do is make sure its temperature sensor has proper calibration. The last thing you want is your heater not turning on (or off) when it should, resulting in very uncomfortable people inside your building or home.
Cold winter air and closed windows go hand-in-hand. This means less opportunity to circulate out the dusty indoor air with fresh outdoor air. So to prepare your system for this extra work, make sure you install a fresh, new air filter (or do a good job cleaning your existing air filter). Not only will this provide great indoor air quality, but it will improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC system.
Ensure your heating and air conditioning system is ready to work for the cooler days and nights that come with the winter season. If you’d like more ideas or ways to do this, contact our team at Climate Control before it gets too cold!Back to Posts
