Preparing your HVAC System for Fall

Your HVAC system has been on full blast for the past couple months with this hot summer we’ve been having in Montgomery AL. With fall right around the corner, it’s time to prepare your HVAC unit for the colder weather. Here are a few tips to ensure that your HVAC system is ready to switch gears and take on the colder season!
Replace or clean your filters: By now, your air conditioning has been running for almost 3 months so a lot of dirt and debris has come through and continues to get collected in your filters. In order to make sure you’re getting the most out of your heating system, you should clean or replace your filters right away.
Preventative Maintenance: Your system should be getting checked regularly, so before it starts to get to the busy season, give us a call! Just like your car needs regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly, your air conditioning and heating systems need proper maintenance to ensure they are working at peak performance. A maintained system will keep you more comfortable, and save you money. Our Dixie Cares Plan includes one air conditioning system tune-up and one heating system tune-up each year. This service will not only improve efficiency, promote safety, promote longer equipment life, and reduce breakdowns but will also satisfy manufacturer maintenance requirements to keep warranties in place.
Check your Thermostat: You’ve been using your thermostat all summer, so make sure that the batteries aren’t low, and if they are be sure to replace them. If you have an older thermostat, it might be time to think about replacing it! Upgraded thermostats will save you money because they are often more accurate and easier to use!
We hope you enjoy the last few weeks of summer, and don’t forget to schedule a maintenance check up with us today!
