HVAC Maintenance Tips for Cold Weather

Are you ready for winter and the cooler weather ahead? Protect your family and home from the cold temperatures with the tips and maintenance below.

  • Check that your thermostat is working properly. Make sure that your thermostat power is connected or that the batteries are fresh. If your model is older, consider a new, programmable thermostat that you can set to turn on and off as needed. Lower the temperature when you are away to save money and remember to set it lower during the night for better sleep.
  • Clean or replace air filters. Replacing or cleaning filters can help prevent blockages, prolong the life of your HVAC system, help your system run efficiently, and keep your air clean.
  • Inspect your insulation. Insulation inspections help to determine where you may be losing warm air, where new insulation is needed, and where your insulation is deteriorating. Insulation does double duty as it keeps warm air in and cold air out.
  • Check ducts for leaks. Check any exposed air ducts for cracks, disconnections, or tears. These can cause inconsistent pressure, creating a disruption in heat distribution that forces the HVAC system to run harder and longer.
  • Inspect and perform maintenance on your furnace. Listen for sounds that indicate an issue such as banging, rattling, or other strange sounds. Maintenance may include cleaning the coils and pan beneath the system. Removing dirt, dust, and debris can prevent damage and potential issues in the future. A thorough, professional inspection can help to remedy issues before they become major problems.
