Summer is drawing to a close. It’s almost time to make the switch between cooling and heating. Are you ready? As a resident of Minnesota, we don’t have to remind you of the dramatic temperature difference between summer and winter. You’ll want to have all your ducks in a row when it comes time to turn on the heat. For those living in Woodbury, our HVAC contractors can provide you with end of season maintenance and advice. In this blog, we’re going to cover some quick tips to get your heating and cooling units prepared for the changing seasons.
Get Your Outdoor Unit Ready for winter
During the summer all types of debris can build up on and around your outdoor air condenser unit. Grass clippings, twigs, and leaves may be piling up around the base of the unit. Take some time to clean away any debris and if you’re done using the system for the season, then we recommend that you cover the top of your unit with a tarp or piece of sturdy plywood to keep leaf debris from falling inside the condenser.
Change the Air Conditioning Filter
Your air conditioning filter gets dirty during the summer, due to frequent use. If you didn’t keep up with replacing your filters during the summer, it’s not too late. They will surely need to be replaced after a whole season of use. Take it upon yourself to replace your air conditioning filter now, to increase airflow and to get your system ready for the fall.
Schedule Preventative Maintenance for Your Furnace
Now is the time to schedule a checkup for your furnace. Don’t wait until it’s too late to have your furnace inspected. By completing your fall maintenance now, you will ensure a long happy winter of warm comfort. Preventative maintenance can save you in the long run. Our team of professional HVAC technicians will be able to tune-up, clean, and make any necessary adjustments or replace worn out parts well before the cold weather hits.
