The arrival of October marks the beginning of the transition from the unrelenting heat of the desert to more temperate weather in Roanoke, Virginia. Now is also a good time for homeowners to prepare their heating and cooling systems for the coming season, address common problems and ensure peak performance as fall approaches.
If you’re like me, you’ve spent much of your October days in the desert heat, only to find yourself shivering in the cool desert nights. This is exactly how it is done in our part of the world. Today we are here to give you some HVAC tips that will help you transition smoothly from the scorching summer to the colder fall season.
The Fall Maintenance Checklist
When the sun’s intensity begins to fade, it’s the perfect time to show your HVAC system some love. Think of it like a post-summer spa day, only with air conditioning and heating. Here is your fall maintenance checklist:
- Air conditioning service
Before you say goodbye to your air conditioner for the season, give it a head start with professional air conditioning service. This includes cleaning the coils, checking refrigerant levels, and making sure all components are in good working order.
- Air conditioning maintenance
While your air conditioner is taking a well-deserved rest, this is a good opportunity to perform a thorough maintenance check. Change the air filters, check the ducts and remove any accumulated dirt. Your air conditioning system will thank you when next summer comes around.
- Thermostat settings
When temperatures get cooler, it’s time to change your thermostat settings. Consider raising the temperature slightly during the day and lowering it at night to save on energy costs.
- Preparation of the heating system
It can still be hot during the day, but it can get cool in the desert at night. Test your heating system to make sure it can provide heat when needed.
Fall – the Perfect Time for HVAC Upgrades
Fall isn’t just about pumpkin spice lattes and changing leaves; This is also a good time to think about upgrading your air conditioning and heating system. Here’s why:
Modern HVAC systems have features like zoning, which allows you to control the temperature in different areas of your home. You no longer have to argue about the thermostat!
Newer systems are more energy efficient and will help you reduce your energy costs. You are also doing your bit for the environment
If your old HVAC system looks like a jet engine taking off, it may be time to upgrade it. Newer models are quieter, so you can enjoy a quiet home.
