The first day of winter will be marked on December 21st in just a few short weeks. It may not feel much like winter right now here on the Crystal Coast,
but we can certainly expect to see some low temperatures and cold evenings and nights in the next two to three months. Is your HVAC system ready to
withstand the cold and keep your home warm?
Here are some things you should be doing to prep your heating unit for the colder months:
1. Change your air filters. This should be done each month.
2. Program your thermostat. A programmable thermostat allows you to preset temperatures for different times of the day. For example, you
can set your temperature for lower during the day while you’re away so that your HVAC is doing less work.
3. Clear your air returns and vents. Make sure that no furniture, bedding or other objects are blocking your air vents so that air has
a clear path for supply and return.
4. Give us a call for pre-winter maintenance. It’s important to have your furnace blower compartment cleaned out. We can perform this
task during regular service and maintenance as well as inspect your unit for any issues or necessary repairs that could leave your family in the cold
The best way to avoid costly problems with your heating system is regular preventative maintenance and service. That’s where we come in! Give us a call
today to schedule your HVAC unit service and make sure that you, your family and your home will be warm all winter long!
