Get ready for fall 2023 with this 8-point HVAC maintenance checklist

Fall HVAC Maintenance Checklist

As the chilly autumn air settles in, it’s time to get your HVAC system ready for the fall season. Regular HVAC maintenance is essential to ensure that your system runs properly and effectively, and keeps your house warm and pleasant throughout the cold months. In this blog post, we will not only discuss why fall HVAC maintenance is important but also provide you with 8 essential HVAC maintenance checklist items to get your system ready for the fall of 2023.

Why is fall HVAC maintenance important?

Fall HVAC maintenance is vital for several reasons. First and foremost, it ensures your system is in top-notch condition before the heavy usage in the winter months. 

Regular maintenance not only extends the life of your HVAC system, it also improves energy efficiency which saves you money on electricity bills. Furthermore, scheduled HVAC tune-ups can help avoid unexpected breakdowns, giving you peace of mind during the winter months.

The 8-step HVAC maintenance checklist

1. Change the air filters

Replacing air filters should be at the top of your fall HVAC maintenance plan. Clean filters ensure that your high efficiency HVAC system operates efficiently, maintains good indoor air quality and prevents unnecessary strain on the equipment.

2. Check the thermostat

Make sure your thermostat is working correctly. If you haven’t done it already, consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat, which will save you money on heating bills and also enhance your experience of comfort.

3. Inspect the wiring

Examine all electrical connections and wires for signs of wear and tear since faulty wiring could lead to system malfunctions. If you spot issues, address them promptly to prevent them from developing into bigger problems.

4. Clean the ducts

To ensure good indoor air quality for your family, it’s essential to maintain clean ducts. Hire a professional HVAC company in Philadelphia to remove dust, debris and allergens from your ductwork.

5. Lubricate moving parts

Proper lubrication of moving parts in your HVAC system reduces friction and prevents wear and tear. Less internal damage will go a long way in extending the life of your equipment and reducing your maintenance and repair expenses. 

6. Test safety controls

You need to have your HVAC system operating in a way that’s not only efficient but also safe. By ensuring the proper working condition of your system’s safety controls, you protect the well-being and safety of your family and home.

7. Clean and clear the area around your HVAC unit

Ensure that your outdoor unit is free from debris, leaves and other obstructions. A clear area allows for proper airflow and keeps your system running efficiently.

8. Schedule a professional HVAC tune-up

While there are some tasks you can handle yourself, hiring a HVAC maintenance service for a professional tune-up is vital. These professionals come with the requisite skills, experience and equipment to check, clean and optimize your system for peak performance.
