As summer transitions into fall, life shifts into more of a routine for many people. Vacations are over, and the kids are back to school. It is also a time to prepare for winter weather and much colder temperatures. The last thing you need is to wake up one morning to find your HVAC system is down, and you have no heat. There are things you can’t prevent from happening, but getting fall HVAC tune-up & preventative maintenance in Lake Stevens can help.
Get Ready for Fall & Winter
Football and sweater season has arrived. So has the time for your fall maintenance on your HVAC system. Here are some tips on what to do:
- Air Filters – You may not have turned on the heat yet, and some may even still be running the AC, but now is the time to change out those filters.
- HVAC Tune-up – While you can do somethings on your own to prepare for autumn, you need a professional to do a tune-up on your HVAC system. This can prevent small problems from becoming much bigger ones later on.
- Thermostat Adjustments – Change up your settings to reflect the different seasons. Consider getting an automatic thermostat if you don’t already have one that allows you to pre-program the settings. This helps avoid using energy you don’t have to when no one is at home.
- Declutter the Unit – Make sure your unit is free of debris on the outside. Leaves, bugs, and other small critters can accumulate around the unit. This affects how it functions and can be a fire hazard.
These few simple steps can keep your HVAC system operating at peak performance throughout the fall and winter months. Cascade Energy Services would be happy to schedule routine fall HVAC tune-up & preventative maintenance in Lake Stevens for you. Call us today at (425) 243-0371.
