Scheduling Maintenance For the Season Change

Sep 12 ,2016

HVAC Tasks Complete at the End of WinterIf you’re looking to prepare your Minneapolis home for the upcoming Fall and Winter seasons, Northern’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning has some tips on scheduling maintenance for the season change.

Summer may be peak home improvement season, but as this comprehensive fall home maintenance schedule suggests, autumn is king when it comes to maintaining your home. Some of the easiest fall chores can save you big dollars on your energy bills. Read on to learn more.

Check Thermostat Settings

The heating schedule on the thermostat is checked to make sure it’s programmed to keep your home comfortable when you’re there, and that it goes into energy-savings mode while you’re away from home or asleep.

Check System Controls

All controls for the system are examined to ensure they work properly and safely. Your contractor will determine if the system’s operating cycle is functioning as intended (starts, runs and turns off).

Check Electrical Connections

The voltage and current on the motors are measured, and all of the electrical connections are tightened. This is done to ensure safe and proper operation of the electrical components.

Check Exhaust Outlets

Your contractor inspects the exhaust system to ensure carbon monoxide or other harmful gases are not building up.
Burners, heat exchangers, fuel line and connections: Each is checked to make sure they’re in safe and proper working order.

Check Your Furnace

Schedule an appointment for a fall furnace inspection and tuneup to help avoid a breakdown in the middle of a freeze. Replace furnace filters: The changing season is also the perfect time to check and change dirty furnace filters. Clean filters make your HVAC system run more efficient, so it distributes heat better and cuts your energy costs.
