Your HVAC Maintenance To-Do List for September

Check the Air Filters

It’s important to regularly check your air conditioner’s filters and replace them as needed. Typically, a filter can go for an average of three months without needing cleaned or replaced, but experts say it’s best to have a replacement ready to go every time you check on it, just in case. With the hot weather of the previous months, your filters have been working overtime, so it will very likely be necessary to replace them to ensure optimal performance of your system.

Tune Up Your Heating System

Pay special attention to your heating system. According to HVAC companies, September is a good time to tune up your heat pump, furnace, boiler or other home heating equipment. Make sure they’re primed for the winter so they can operate efficiently throughout the coldest months.

Adjust Your Thermostat to the Colder Season Ahead

Program the thermostat for the coming months, and make sure to base temperatures for the season on the occupancy schedules of the various family members in your home. Typically, it’s recommended to set temperatures back overnight and during the hours when no one is at home. Then, set the temperatures to adjust to occupied indoor levels around 15 minutes before the first person is scheduled to arrive home. This way, you can maintain indoor comfort and avoid excessive energy consumption.
