5 Tips to Prepare Your HVAC System For Fall

Posted on September 30, 2021

Fall is finally here! And as the cooler weather settles in, your air conditioners are no longer needed. Your HVAC system will be going through many changes as you head into colder months, so now is the perfect time to make sure that everything is in order before you switch it.  

And the team here at Steamatic is ready to break down everything you need to prepare for this new season. 

Schedule Seasonal Maintenance Check

The new season means it’s time to schedule your regular HVAC maintenance check! Technicians should come in and look at your system, especially since soon you’ll be switching from your AC to heating. In the future, be sure to set up a maintenance plan with the experts to make sure everything is in good working order every new season. 

Check Refrigerant Levels

Your air conditioning units work by cooling the air around them with coolants. After an entire season of running to keep your home cool, your refrigerant levels may be low. This coolant can easily leak out or run low during the summertime if not checked regularly. We could still be seeing warm weather, not to mention it’s best to get it out of the way before next year. 

Change Your Air Filters

There’s no need to let your air filters stay dirty until spring, when you’re going to have a lot of work ahead of you. It’s best to change your air filters now since they probably built up with debris all summer long. If you can’t remember the last time you changed your air filters, now is the time! 

Get Your Ducts Cleaned

Over time, your ducts can fill with dust, pollen, and animal dander. Now is the time to contact a professional to get your heating ducts cleaned out before it’s time to have your heating system start up again. 

Check For Leaks

Check for leaks, drips, or any other issues before they become bigger problems. Any signs of leaks can cause mold growth, and mold can spread relatively quickly, with no space of your home being entirely invulnerable to its attacks. Because of its dangerous nature, it’s not a job meant for homeowners to get rid of. So if you believe your home has a mold issue, it may be time to contact professionals for mold remediation services.
