We’re saying goodbye to the hot weather. Some of you may begrudgingly dig your winter clothes out of storage, while others have spent weeks trying to decide which hoodie will go best with your first pumpkin spice latte of the season. Regardless of how fall makes you feel, it’s here—and winter is just around the corner. Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC has some tips for you that will allow you to enjoy the fall and keep your house cozy until next spring. Along with scheduling your ongoing air conditioner service from Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC, use this checklist to get ready for the change in season.
Take Care of Your Air Filter.
Your AC worked hard for you through the hot Booneville season. Before you give your AC a break for the cooler months, check your air filter and exchange it if it’s dirty. This will help your air conditioner work more efficiently and keep dust and pollutants from circulating through your indoor space as the seasons change.
Let Some Fresh Air In.
With the temperatures dropping, take the opportunity to open the windows and enhance your indoor air quality. The air in your home can be several times more polluted than outdoor air, so take this chance to get some fresh air before winter’s chill begins.
Be Sure Vents and Registers are Clear.
Sometimes furniture gets moved around as you switch from outdoor living in the nice weather to being inside more as the days get cooler and shorter. Make sure none of your vents or registers are blocked as you rearrange. This will make it a challenge for your HVAC system to do what it needs to do and could cause an unwelcomed hike in your energy costs.
Check for Air Leaks.
The heat of summer can take a toll on weather-stripping. Look around your windows and doors for leaks that could let heated air out of your home this winter. Air leaks are responsible for reducing heating efficiency and increasing your heating bills. Halt leaks by replacing caulking and weather-stripping where needed.
Schedule a Furnace Checkup.
Once your AC is ready to take a rest, it’s time to focus on your winter workhorse: your furnace. Call Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC to perform preventive maintenance checkup. We’ll make sure your furnace is clean and working smoothly before winter rolls in. During your preventive maintenance, we’ll also pinpoint and let you know what needs to be done to fix any potential problems that may come up when your furnace is used consistently.
Test Your Carbon Monoxide Detector.
Before heating season kicks off, test your carbon monoxide detector. It is beneficial to make sure your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are operating properly and have a new set of batteries installed.
