3 Steps for Preparing your HVAC System for Fall

Your HVAC system has been on full blast for the past few months with this hot summer we’ve been having here in Alabama! While your air conditioning may have not encountered any problems during this warm season, it’s the perfect time to perform preventative maintenance before the cold of winter.

Getting your HVAC System Fall-Ready


With fall right around the corner, it’s time to prepare your HVAC unit for the colder weather. But where should you start? No worries, our team at Dixie is giving a few tips to ensure that your HVAC system is ready to switch gears and take on the colder season!

Replace Your Air Filters

By now, your air conditioning has been running for several months! As a result, a lot of dirt and debris has come through and collected in your filters. As you transition from air conditioning to heating, you should replace your air filters. The best way to remember to change your air filters is to set an alarm or reminder on your phone.

Check Your Thermostat

Of course, you’ve been using your thermostat along with your air conditioning all summer. Take time to check the thermostat to assure that the batteries aren’t low and that there are no error messages or problems. If you have an older thermostat, it might be time to think about replacing it! Upgraded programmable thermostats can save money on your utility bills because they have energy-saving options and can be set to adjust when you’re not home.

 

Preventative Maintenance

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 HVAC system will keep you more comfortable and save you money in the long run. 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, lead to longer equipment life, and reduce breakdowns, but it will also satisfy manufacturer maintenance requirements to keep warranties in place.
