Tips to Prepare Your Home and Furnace for Fall

It is disappointing, but chilly fall weather is here in Pittsburgh, PA. As we start to prepare ourselves for the chilly weather ahead, we begin to store our summer clothing, patio furniture and unfortunately dig out the pool cover. However, you could be missing an important step from your list when preparing your Western Pennsylvania home for fall. This additional task is to ensure that your HVAC system runs smoothly, thereby reducing the chance of a heating system failure on the first cold day in Pittsburgh. The following tips are useful steps to help prepare your HVAC system for the fall climate.

Inspect Filters

In the past year, your furnace filter has collected dust, hair and other debris from the air in your home, which may collage the filter. If the filter is not cleaned or replaced, your furnace system may be overworked, increasing the possibility of failure. Hence, cleaning or replacing the filter is an important part of your fall check list. If you are unsure how to clean your filter call your local Pittsburgh HVAC company to assist!

Adventure Outside

Another important step on the autumn checklist is to venture outside to the outdoor unit. Throughout the summer, various debris (such as branches, rocks, leaves, and dirt) have been scattered near the outdoor unit. Make sure to clean the entire exterior area by removing debris away from the unit. However, if you find any debris inside the equipment, please call a heating and cooling company near you to investigate why debris enters the outdoor unit.

Get a Tune-up or Furnace Maintenance

The final tip is calling your local HVAC company to perform a furnace tune-up. A yearly tune-up, in the long run, can save homeowners money by correcting minor problems before they grow into costly issues. Regular maintenance can also improve operating efficiency and extend the life of the equipment. Major manufacturers strongly recommend regular maintenance to improve system quality. Finally, regular furnace clean and checks can save homeowners on utility bills because their systems can operate efficiently, thereby reducing the risk of costly poorly performing systems.
