Heating Services to Take Care of Before Winter | Airco Service

Posted on: Oct 26, 2017

With fall in full swing and winter just around the corner, it is imperative to take care of your home’s heating system before the cold months strike. The last thing you want to deal with is a HVAC system not running at full capacity, or running into heating problems during the colder time of year. That is exactly why you need to make sure and perform these heating tasks around the house to prepare your home for this upcoming winter.

HVAC Inspection

If you haven’t already, now is a good time to bring in the HVAC professionals at Airco Service and have a technician inspect your entire heating and cooling system. This way, problems can be identified ahead of time and corrected. This helps you avoid possible difficulties when you need your heat the most, and also assist in saving you money whenever you flip on the furnace.

New Filters

It is important to switch out your HVAC filters at least every three months. If you haven’t done it recently, now is the time to do so. You’ll want new filters in place when winter comes as you’ll likely rely on the HVAC system throughout the winter months.

Check Weather Stripping and Fill Cracks

Even the smallest crack can cost you hundreds of dollars over the course of a year. It also brings an uncomfortable draft into your home. So before winter strikes, go around your home’s windows and doors to look for these cracks and spaces. Additionally, investigate the weather stripping around the doors. As the stripping ages it begins to dry out, which reduces the amount of bend and push back. This in turn can result in openings around the doors, allowing your heated air to travel out. Replacing the weather stripping is inexpensive, can be done quickly, and will go a long way toward cutting down your energy bills throughout the year.

With winter right around the corner, now is the time to perform necessary maintenance and winterize your home. From swapping in new filters and installing weather stripping to bringing in the HVAC professionals of Airco Service to check and fix your HVAC system, you’ll ensure your home is comfortable during the upcoming cold months.
