Get an Early Start to Fall by Kicking Off HVAC Preparedness

Summer is winding down in the Valley of the Sun. You’re probably more than ready for a break from the relentless heat and monsoon thunderstorms this summer. Are you sure that your HVAC system is ready for the seasonal change to fall? The following are some tips to prepare for the annual fall kickoff as the temperatures steadily dip below the century mark.

Late Summer AC Unit Outdoors Cleaning

Summer storms often result in branches, leaves, and debris accumulating around exterior air conditioning units. With the monsoon season officially ending in a few weeks, this is the perfect time to clear vegetation and dirt that can impact HVAC functionally. Trim back bushes and landscaping that surround your unit. Remove dead leaves, branches, and weeds.

Late Summer AC Unit Indoors Cleaning

Summer winds also can wreak havoc on the interior of your HVAC system, causing dust to quickly collect inside your unit, ductwork, and filters. With summer almost over, replace or clean your indoor air filters. It’s a simple task that can dramatically improve your indoor air quality and the efficiency of your system.

Quick Visual HVAC System Inspection

While much of your system isn’t visible, you can still conduct a preliminary inspection to determine if there are any obvious issues. Grab a flashlight. Inspect the outdoor unit, as well as your furnace, vents, and any visible areas of ductwork. Look for potential problems like leaks, loose seals, or cracks. Next, turn on your system. Check to make sure air is moving properly through every vent.

HVAC Technician Tune-Up

Not every issue can be discovered through a visual inspection. This is why it’s important to get regular tune-ups to ensure your system is working as it should be. A professionally trained HVAC technician knows exactly what to look for, as well as what to do to extend the life and efficiency of your system. This includes lubricating moving parts and tightening electrical connections.
