The Importance of Winter HVAC Maintenance

Your HVAC unit plays a vital role in your home or business, especially during the cold winter months. You cannot expect your family or employees to be comfortable or happy if your HVAC unit cannot keep up with heating needs, which makes winter HVAC maintenance critical for any home or business owner.

To ensure you have access to the best HVAC maintenance tips during the winter months, we’ve made a list of areas to check to help keep your unit running efficiently.

Suggestions for Winter HVAC Maintenance

Although we always recommend you schedule regular professional winter HVAC maintenance, there are several actions you can implement to help your HVAC unit continue to function at full capacity. Here are a few great tips:

Double-check your thermostat

You should always make sure your thermostat has a fresh set of batteries in it at each season’s change, specifically winter. Confirming that your thermostat is working correctly and you have it set to a reasonable temperature can go a long way in terms of saving energy each month without overexerting your HVAC unit.

Check your air filters

When your air filters are dirty or old, there is a high likelihood that it will not allow the air to flow freely in and out of your HVAC unit. This disruption can result in a rise in your energy bills because your unit is working overtime to compensate. If your air filter is dirty, it may only need to be cleaned. However, if there is a tear in the filter, it should be replaced right away.

Attic insulation

Although you may not spend an abundance of time in your attic, you must take the time to ensure that space is adequately insulated. Neglecting to do so could result in your HVAC unit working overtime to compensate for the cold air that is blowing through the area and, by extension, your house.

Invest in a cover for your outdoor air condition unit

Once the weather turns cold enough to the point that you know you will not be turning your air conditioner on until the change of the season, you should invest in a durable cover for your outdoor air conditioning unit. This cover will help protect the device from the snow and the ice, reducing the possibility of damage to it while it is not in use.
