Gear Up Your HVAC System for Fall

Posted on September 23rd, 2020 by Bill Stuhr

Fall is finally here! That means cool weather, changing leaves, the return of popular seasonal lattes, and (of course) HVAC maintenance. Each year, the Five Star team works to get customers’ heating and cooling systems up to snuff for the onset of cold weather. Here are our recommendations for homeowners looking to keep their system in working order.

Conduct a Test Run

You don’t have to wait for the weather to turn before deciding to turn on your system for the first time! In fact, it’s better that you don’t. Turning your system on for a test run can help you prepare for any repairs that are needed. If anything seems off about your system, you’ll have time to get it ready for the first cold day.

Replace Your Air Filters

Depending on where you live, the summer season typically beckons a decent amount of pollen, dust, and other debris into your HVAC system. Failing to replace a clogged air filter can result in lower system performance and heightened allergy symptoms for sensitive members of your family.

Schedule a Maintenance Appointment

There’s no system that won’t benefit from professional attention. Allowing a trained technician to test and service your unit will help keep it running smoothly throughout the season. Regular maintenance can also help improve the lifespan and efficiency of your system, cutting costs into the future.
