When the weather turns cool and you’re ready to turn your air conditioning off for the season, there are a few things that you can do to help your HVAC system to be ready for the switch. Below are four tips that you can use to help your system make the switch from air conditioning to heating more easily.
- Check Air Filters – Filters that are dirty in your HVAC system can cause problems in your system. They also can cause it to run less efficiently, which means that you are going to spend more money on your electricity.
- Seal Any Air Leaks – You want to make sure that you are sealing air leaks. This is going to help your house stay warm during the winter and when the warm weather comes it will be cooler in the summer.
- Clean the Outdoor Unit – You want to make sure that you are cleaning up around your outside unit. Remove the bushes and grass from around the AC and clean off any dirt from its outside. The last thing you want is to have a problem with your AC when the winter is over.
- Schedule a Checkup for Your System – Finally, you want to have your system checked. This will not only make sure that your heater is ready for the winter but that you catch any problems with your AC that will stop it from working next year.
Even though you won’t be using your air conditioning, you want to make sure it’s ready for next year and that your heating will keep you warm. These tips will help you with doing this.
