Tips for Checking Your HVAC System Before Ohio Winter

Believe it or not, we are starting our inevitable descent into winter (let that sink in for a second). But hey, let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet. It’s been a hot summer for Ohio, and we still have likely 2-3 more weeks of good, warm weather before the season truly starts to change. However, it is never too early to start getting your home and your HVAC unit ready for autumn. After all, If your system isn’t prepared for the sudden plunge into our cold Ohio winter, you may find yourself making a no heat call in the wee hours of the night to your pros at Advanced Air! Let’s learn a few tips for checking on your HVAC system before the brisk temperatures of fall and winter set in.

Check And Change Your Furnace Filters

Your furnace has likely been sitting all by it’s lonesome, unused since mid-April. During that time, the filter has been gathering dust mites, pollen, and other particles from around your house. Much like the filter in a car, a dusty furnace filter can be harmful to your HVAC system and even the health of your loved ones. Swapping out your furnace filter is recommended during the cold winter months every 80 days, and every 45 days if you have animals in the house. It’s very inexpensive, makes the house healthier to live in, and keeps the furnace running efficiently.

Have Your HVAC Vents Professionally Cleaned

Okay, okay, we know you’ve heard us rant about this one. But to be honest, your air quality is not going to be up to par unless you ensure that an experienced HVAC tech comes to your home and CLEANS THOSE VENTS OUT! This will ensure that the air blowing around and throughout your HVAC unit is not being mixed in with critters and allergens that can cause asthma and other respiratory issues. (It also smells a lot better!)

The Homeowner’s Inspection

So of course, you will want a professional inspection to be sure your system is ready to shoulder the winter months ahead, but as a homeowner, you can make sure to do your part with a few easy inspections. Check your ductwork for any leaks, make sure your pilot light has a healthy blue hue, and listen for anything that sounds out of the ordinary. If you find something is amiss, call us immediately.

Your own personal inspections can catch small issues and prevent bigger problems, but ultimately you need your HVAC inspected and serviced by Advanced Air Solutions.
