Wow… Did summer fly by or what?
It’s already time that the kids are headed back to school. With this change of schedule, it’s a great time to share some very basic tips for prepping your HVAC system for the school year!
BACK-TO-SCHOOL HVAC TIPS
Update your thermostat’s schedule
Change your thermostat’s program to reflect that not as many (or any) families members will be home during the day. Make sure you don’t turn your system all the way off so that your humidity stays under control.
Replace your unit’s air filter
Your HVAC system’s filter should be changed every 3 months. If you made a change at the beginning of summer, now is the perfect time put in another new filter. Blocked filters can prevent air from flowing through so changing the filters ensure that your system isn’t being overworked to circulate the air your home.
Clear debris around your outdoor unit
Take a short walk around your house and clear the debris around your the outside of your unit. As you approach fall, keep an eye on how many leaves pile up around your system. A cluttered space around your outdoor unit will effect your system’s efficiency.
