Fall is officially here. September 22 is the day Autumn starts here in Denver, Colorado and the weather couldn’t agree more. Temperatures are dropping along with precipitation signaling that Summertime has come and gone this year. While the cooler temps are a welcome addition to the blazing heat we received, now is the time to inspect your home’s HVAC and schedule much-needed HVAC maintenance. You may have had your air conditioning unit taken care of sometime in the last couple of months but that does not mean the rest of your HVAC system is up to date. HVAC maintenance includes inspecting your heating equipment as well, ensuring it will run efficiently when frost becomes a bit too uncomfortable. Investing time and money in seasonal HVAC maintenance will help in the long run so that you may avoid costly HVAC repairs and replacements later on.
Fall HVAC Maintenance for your Air Conditioner
First off, your air conditioning unit. Just because your air conditioner will not be used in the coming months does not mean it should be avoided for HVAC maintenance. An important service that homes forget about is winterizing their air conditioner. While it seems extra, this type of service comes naturally when performing HVAC maintenance in the Fall and Winter. It includes the standard cleaning and inspection of the air conditioner like removing debris, removing any water, and checking connections. But it also includes insulating any exposed piping and making sure the unit is sealed from harsher weather conditions. Some home air conditioning units have covers, but Fox Heating and Cooling will make sure there is something available to help protect your unit.
Fall HVAC Maintenance for your Furnace
The coming cooler winds will prompt many homeowners for HVAC services. Such as installing furnaces, furnace repair, heat pump replacements, and so on. All of these are typical as homes reach for the thermostat only to find out they aren’t getting heat. Fox heating and cooling encourage you to be pre-emptive. Reach out to your preferred HVAC contractor or Fox Heating and Cooling to make sure you have a date for HVAC maintenance and inspection.
Fall HVAC maintenance should not be skipped if any seasonal maintenance were to be avoided. Any number of parts associated with your home’s HVAC system can cause faulty operation or simply cease function. Having a licensed HVAC contractor come to your home to perform professional Fall HVAC Maintenance will include:
- Clean and Check Furnace System
- Check all Furnace Connections
- Check Furnace Sensors
- Check Controls
- Check Connections (ducts, pipes, valves, and motors)
- Calibrate thermostat
- Check smoke/carbon-monoxide detectors
