As the weather gets colder and the possibility of severe weather increases, it’s important to make sure your HVAC system is up for the challenge. At Comfort Hounds Heating & Cooling, we are dedicated to making sure your home or office is comfortable all year round.
Here are a few tips to prepare your HVAC for severe weather:
1. Inspect your system
Before the cold weather hits, it’s a good idea to have a professional inspect your HVAC system. This will ensure that everything is in working order and that there are no potential problems.
2. Clean your system
A clean HVAC system will run more efficiently and be less likely to break down when under stress. Be sure to change your filters regularly and have a professional clean your ducts at least once a year.
3. Weatherize your home
You can save money on your energy bills and keep your home more comfortable by sealing up any cracks or gaps around doors and windows. This will also help to prevent cold air from coming into your home through the HVAC system.
4. Know how to use your thermostat
In order to get the most out of your HVAC system, it’s important to know how to use your thermostat correctly. During the winter months, you should set it to “heat” and leave it at a consistent temperature. Adjusting the thermostat constantly will only waste energy and money.
5. Don’t wait until it’s too late
If you wait until severe weather is on its way before you start preparing your HVAC system, it may be too late. Take action now to ensure that your system is ready for whatever Mother Nature has in store this winter.
