Since Georgia stays hot typically through October, it is hard to imagine needing your furnace anytime soon. The cool of fall weather can sneak up quickly so your HVAC system needs to be ready to handle cold weather. Your family’s comfort depends on your furnace being in good condition. At Ferguson Heating and Air Conditioning Company, we are committed to keeping you cool in the summer, toasty in the winter, and comfy in the seasons in between. Follow these fall maintenance tips to keep your family comfortable through the autumn season:
- Change Your Filter—A dirty filter will cause your HVAC system to be overworked and potentially fail when you need it most. Also, your family’s health will be impacted when the filter is not catching irritants and allergens effectively. This is especially important if you have a family member who suffers from allergies, asthma, or respiratory conditions. Filter changes are a small task that make a big difference. If you do not prefer to DIY your air filter, our team will be glad to help. During a filter change, we can also look at how your HVAC system is running.
- Schedule a Tune Up for Your Furnace—Our professional crew can ensure that your HVAC system is in good working order and prepared to keep your family comfortable through fluctuating weather changes. Most expensive and inconvenient HVAC problems which occur can be prevented or minimized by catching them early on. By inspecting your furnace, we can locate any potential problems and offer a solution before you are faced with a major repair. A tune up will also make sure that your HVAC system is operating with efficiency, saving energy and money. Being proactive with your maintenance can help you avoid discomfort and expense down the line.
- Clear Your Outdoor Unit—Weeds grow like crazy during the summer months with the constant summer storms. Your unit cannot run as intended when it is hindered by plant overgrowth. Additionally, your unit could be overrun with pests who make their home there because of the overgrown plants. Trim back anything within a 2-3 foot radius of the unit for your safety and the efficiency of your unit. During summer weather, uncontrolled plants around your unit could be a fire hazard.
