Temperatures are beginning to change, which indicates that fall is now upon us. For many businesses, this means that air conditioning won’t be needed as much anymore, and instead, facilities will look to use heating systems to keep their buildings comfortable. This makes it the perfect time for HVAC system maintenance. During the fall, there are many maintenance tasks you can get done for your HVAC system.
Get the Debris Out of Your HVAC System
If your HVAC system is located outside, fall is when you want to get it cleaned. There are many types of dirt and debris that can clog up your system and impede airflow, making it harder to keep your facility at the preferred temperature. Take some time to get all of the leaves and other debris out of your system. Doing this will allow for improved airflow quality.
Look at the Thermostat Settings
If your thermostat is able to be programmed, fall is the ideal time for making adjustments to it so that your facility can stay comfortable even with these changing temperatures that fall brings. By doing this, your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to reach whatever your desired temperature may be for your building. Your cooling and heating bills will also go down if you adjust your thermostat.
Change Your HVAC System’s Filter
How recently was your HVAC system’s filter changed? If it’s been several months, you might want to consider changing it. This is especially important for those with people in your building who have breathing conditions or who have any allergies. By changing your HVAC system’s filter, you help keep your air in good quality, allowing people to breathe more easily and comfortably.
Have an HVAC System Professional Come Take a Look
The last thing to do is get your HVAC system professionally inspected. Professionals will notice problems that you may otherwise miss, and they’ll know how to handle any type of problem it may have. Finally, they will have sound advice for other types of maintenance tasks you should perform to keep your HVAC system in optimal condition.
