Be proactive and schedule an inspection and tune-up with Lee’s Air to make sure that your heating unit is winter-ready.
Here are a few tips to make sure that your heater is ready to handle the cold.
- Inspection: Like we said, it is important to get your HVAC unit inspected by a professional before the frigid temperatures hit in full force. Being prepared and taking preventative action can prevent problems down the road.
- Change that Filter: A dirty air filter will not only have affect your air quality but also on your HVAC unit’s heating efficiency. A stuffed-up filter makes it harder for air to be pushed through, which means that you will have to turn up the thermostat and spend more energy to get the warmer temperatures you want.
- Cleaning: Even though you might have a filter in place, it won’t pick up everything. That’s why it is important to make sure your entire unit is free of any excess dust and debris. The most common HVAC parts to get dirty are the heat exchanger and the blower. To ensure that your unit is working at top efficiency make sure to routinely clean it of any obstructions.
