Winter is coming, and your heating and air conditioning need some attention before it arrives. If you live in the South, you’re used to a mild, temperate climate, but that doesn’t mean the area never experiences the seasonal cold front. Here’s what you need to know about prepping your HVAC for colder days.
Don’t Skip Fall Service
Your HVAC needs regular TLC to run right. Fall maintenance is essential to get your heating system ready for cooler weather. The best way to do this is with a maintenance agreement. This will take care of your spring service before the AC goes on for summer and your fall service before you turn the heat on. That seasonal service will make sure everything is clean, calibrated, lubricated, tested, and running in tip-top condition. It’s one of the easiest ways to make sure your heat turns on when you turn your heat on.
Consider a Thermostat Upgrade
Investing in a smart thermostat is a great way to make sure both you and your HVAC are ready for the cold. Transitioning from warm weather to cool is hard enough without having to remember to monitor your thermostat. A smart thermostat will allow you to program your preferred comfort levels based on your lifestyle. You can also make changes on the fly even if you’re away from home. A Wi-Fi connection through an app on your phone means you can turn the heat up or down no matter where you are.
