We’re saying goodbye to the summer months. Some of you may begrudgingly dig your winter clothes out of storage, while others have spent their time trying to determine which hoodie will go best with your first pumpkin spice latte of the season. Regardless of how you approach fall, it’s coming—and winter is right behind. Premium Air Services LLC has a few tips for you that will allow you to enjoy the fall and keep your space cozy until next spring. Along with booking your routine air conditioner service from Premium Air Services LLC, use this checklist to prep for the change in season.
Take Care of Your Air Filter.
Your AC worked hard for you through the hot Tomball summer. Before you give your AC a vacation for the cooler season, check your air filter and replace it if it’s dirty. This will help your air conditioner run more efficiently and keep dust and pollutants from circulating through your house as the seasons change.
Let Some Fresh Air In.
With the temperatures dropping, take the opportunity to open the windows and give your indoor air quality a boost. The air within your house can be several times more polluted than outdoor air, so take this time to bring in fresh air before winter’s chill arrives.
Be Sure Vents and Registers are Clear.
Sometimes furniture gets moved around as you move from outdoor living in the nice weather to being inside more as the days get cooler and shorter. Make sure none of your vents or registers are blocked as you rearrange. This will make it more difficult for your HVAC system to perform effectively and could cause an unwelcomed increase in your utility costs.
Check for Air Leaks.
The heat of summer can be hard on weather-stripping. Examine your windows and doors for leaks that could let heated air out of your home this winter. Air leaks are responsible for reducing heating efficiency and increasing your heating bills. Stop leaks by replacing caulking and weather-stripping where needed.
Schedule a Furnace Checkup.
Once your AC is ready to step aside for the winter, it’s time to take care of your winter workhorse: your furnace. Call Premium Air Services LLC to do a preventive maintenance checkup. We’ll ensure your furnace is clean and operating smoothly before winter rolls in. During your preventive maintenance, we’ll also detect and let you know what needs to be done to fix any potential problems that may come up when your furnace is in regular use.
Test Your Carbon Monoxide Detector.
Before heating season starts, test your carbon monoxide detector. It is worth it to make sure your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are operating properly and have a new set of batteries installed.
