Winter is Windsor is fast approaching! Those of you who have been through a Windsor winter know how terrible the weather can get. Freezing temperatures, ice and snow can all put a hefty toll on an unmaintained system. There are very few steps you can take to ensure your HVAC system is kept in great shape, no matter what happens through the winter.
Tackle Some Light Cleaning
Start the process by cleaning around the area of the outdoor AC unit. Leaves, dirt, dust and twigs may collect around the outside of the unit which may damage or clog the system. If the weather is warmer, gently hose down the unit to spray away any dirt or dust. Allow the unit to dry completely before moving onto the next step.
Get a Cover
By covering your unit, you are preventing any dirt or debris getting into the unit over the winter. Covers can be bought at most home improvement stores. If you don’t have a cover handy, cover the unit with a tarp and weigh down the sides to prevent any debris from getting in the unit.
Change the Air Filter
Filters should be changed once a month, depending on the area you live in. Changing the air filter frequently ensures better air quality in your home, helps the system run more efficiently and will prevent the system from becoming clogged.
Schedule a Tuneup
Once the colder weather hits, you definitely don’t want to experience any issues with your furnace. Schedule a tuneup to ensure your furnace is working properly and keeps you warm throughout the colder months.
