Having your HVAC serviced professionally is essential this time of the year. Even though Phoenix Metro has a mild autumn season, a maintenance checkup can ensure the entire system is working effortlessly at the highest levels of efficiency. Here are some things you can do to prepare your HVAC system now.
Check Door Seals and Windows
Have you noticed your home having difficulty retaining cool air over the summer? Are there air drafts in certain areas of your house? This can be due to leaky doors or windows. When you’re ready to flip on the switch to heating, some of the warm air your heater produces will leak outside unless they’re sealed properly. You’ll want to DIY weatherstrip and caulk leaky windows and doors or have the Cool Blew pros do it. Plus, by upgrading to new energy efficient exterior doors, you can get a tax credit of $250 per door up to $500 per year.
Ensure Your Home’s Insulated Properly
Insulation is important when it comes to your home’s comfort. Sometimes homes don’t have enough insulation, or the existing insulation is losing its effectiveness due to settling or degradation. Homeowners are eligible to get 30% back in energy efficient home improvement tax credits, up to $1,200 per year, which includes adding additional insulation.
Get Thermostat Smart
If you have a smart or programmable thermostat, now’s a great time to turn on its intuitive features. These types of thermostats have a hybrid heating and cooling setting that automatically moves the HVAC setting back and forth. This feature is perfect for transitional seasons, like autumn, where the Valley of the Sun experiences cooler nights and mornings, but afternoons can still get hot. This hybrid setting helps to keep your house’s indoor temperature stable and saves precious energy.
Have you checked your outside HVAC unit recently? It’s possible after the summer monsoon season that it’s covered in debris. Sweep away any debris on the unit and surrounding area. During a maintenance visit, our technicians will inspect and clean the outdoor unit.
Schedule Autumn Maintenance
Fall is the perfect time to schedule system maintenance with one of our N.A.T.E. certified technicians. During your service visit, we’ll inspect the entire HVAC system, identify any potential issues, and make any necessary repairs.
