For many, September comes as a relief from the heat and oppression of the summer. September means Fall is on the way, and cooler weather will prevail. This also means the A/C will go off and there will be a brief time where there will be no need for some heat – it really is a great time of year. There is little better than a smaller utility bill to get the Fall going.
Before we turn off the A/C and crank the heat, there are a few items you should take into consideration beforehand. We at Fulford HVAC want you to know we are here to help you and look forward to earning your trust and business. Here are a few things you need to consider and take care of as we move into Fall.
Air filters need regular changing with every 90 days being about the standard. If your HVAC runs all summer long and all day long, it is a good idea to change them once every 30 days. Having a calendar of information as to when you need to change your filters is a solid idea as is buying your filters in bulk. Buying bulk filters is cheap – just pick them up at a DIY or big box store.
It may not seem like an important thing to do, but cleaning your air grates is a good idea. Dust, dirt and grime does tend to collect on the edges of the grates, and this can cause some problems down the road if you are not taking care to keep these clean. Cleaning the vents is a fast and simple process – add this to your cleaning regimen for the best possible lifetime on your HVAC system.
These suggestions are quick and easy, but there is little that can beat regularly scheduled maintenance with your friends at Fulford HVAC. We handle all of the minor details and keep your HVAC system running regularly and hopefully without serious malfunctions. You will be comfortable, in good shape and ready for the cooler weather that Fall always brings in. Contact us today and schedule your service.
