Fall HVAC Maintenance Tips

Fall is a great time for AC maintenance. Throughout the season, your HVAC system in has been working on overdrive to keep your Cleveland home cool. Now that the kids are back to school and the house is empty for a good part of the day, it is the perfect time to turn down your thermostats and roll up your sleeves, and address any issues within the HVAC system as you transition into the cold season.

Adjust your Thermostat

You should start by adjusting your air conditioner so that the house is hotter during the day and cooler as you return home. There are thermostats that can help to adjust the temperatures automatically. Some have smart features that learn your habits and adjust the thermostat accordingly. These devices are quite affordable and may not require the expertise of HVAC Cleveland professional to install.

Change your Filter

You should change your filter once a month or at the very least, once every three months. It depends on how you often use your air conditioning system. Summer is the best time to replace the filter after the unit has been working to keep your home cool throughout the season. If you fail to change a clogged unit, it will over time run less and less efficiently. It will require more energy to run which means higher energy costs. When replacing the filter make sure you use the proper replacement. Consult your Cleveland air conditioning experts here at Budget Heating and Air Conditioning if in doubt.

Remove Obstructions

This is also the best time to check the outside unit and remove any obstructions that may be on the condenser unit. Lots of activities happening during the summer may have caused debris to be deposited on the outdoor part. Plants may have grown around the unit or leaves may have been blown into it, and this can restrict airflow. After removing the debris, clean using a brush or vacuum. Also, ensure that plants are not obstructing airflow and there is at least a one-foot clearance from the front part of the air conditioner.

Use Ceiling Fans

Here in Cleveland, fall is a great time to use ceiling fans to save energy and money instead of running your HVAC unit.

Scheduled Maintenance

You need to ensure that the HVAC system will be running smoothly throughout the coming seasons. Schedule preventive maintenance with an air conditioning Cleveland professional. You can cut on AC repair costs and ensure that your air conditioner will not break down during the coming seasons.
