The high humidity levels and cold winter months of the southern shores of New Jersey can be brutal for many air conditioning and heating systems. This is one of the reasons you want to face the new season prepared with a well-maintained and tuned HVAC unit. After all, there’s nothing worse than your heat going out on a snowy winter night.
Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t understand the importance of readying their heating system for the colder days ahead. And of those who do understand, many aren’t sure how exactly to do it. Here are a few tips from our experts at Richardson Air Systems on how to get your HVAC system ready this season.
Seasonal maintenance. The best time to contact your local HVAC contractor and book a seasonal inspection of your heating unit is just before the end of fall. Seasonal maintenance should include all the necessary tune-ups of your system, as well as filter changes and clean-up of the outdoor unit. This will help ensure that your heater is ready to make it through a full season of usage and that your indoor air quality is high all throughout.
Checking the thermostat. It’s not uncommon for heating systems to cycle on and off to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home. During these cycles, your thermostat may fluctuate a little bit. However, if your thermostat appears to show heating or cooling levels inconsistent with what you’re feeling, it may be in need of calibration. Call your local HVAC professionals to check your thermostat before winter.
Finish upgrades and repairs. There’s no better time to schedule heating repairs and upgrades than before winter arrives. This way, you can enjoy the energy-saving benefits of your brand-new system immediately, while at the same time breaking it in for long-term continued use.
