Did you know that the best time to prepare your heater for fall weather is during the summer, when the sun is still shining brightly and temperatures are high? If you want to avoid heater malfunctions during the fall, schedule your six-month maintenance checkup today.

Regularly scheduled maintenance can lower utility bills, reduce the wear and tear on your heating system, and help you stay warm throughout the cool fall and cold winter months.

Prepare for Fall Weather with These Maintenance Steps

From cleaning the vents and changing filters to completing an entire system checkup, there are several maintenance steps that will help prolong the lifespan of your heating system, increase its efficiency, and ensure it functions properly when cold weather arrives.

Change or replace your filters.

Many homeowners forget to change their heating system’s filters. Unfortunately, clogged and dirty filters can strain the HVAC system, lower indoor air quality, and even pose a potential fire hazard. A heating professional can tell you when and how to change your air filters so your heating system can keep working efficiently throughout the entire year.

Clean your vents throughout the year.

Dirty vents reduce heating efficiency, lower air quality, cause unpleasant odors, and can occasionally become a fire hazard. A team of professionals can clean your vents so that you can enjoy using your heating system during the fall and winter months.

Call a trusted heating professional.

If you want to keep your home warm when cool fall weather arrives, then you should schedule a maintenance checkup at the end of the summer. The entire HVAC system will be inspected and cleaned to identify areas of wear and tear, resolve maintenance issues, and ensure that your heating system is ready to be used.

By completing the above steps, you can avoid total heating system shutdowns, unwanted odors from dirty vents, poor indoor air quality, and the financial woes of an inefficient heating system. Northern’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning is standing by to help you get your heater ready for fall weather.
