Fall HVAC Maintenance

Fall HVAC Maintenance

It’s Fall HVAC Maintenance Time!

October is here, the air is starting to have a delightful autumn chill. There is no better time to complete your yearly heating tune-up. Not only will seasonal HVAC maintenance guarantee your heating system is ready and able to keep your Rancho Cucamonga area home toasty warm throughout the winter, it will reduce your energy usage and save you a lot of money on your heating bills.

And we know that saving money is important, especially with the holiday season approaching. So here are a few reasons why you shouldn’t skip your fall HVAC maintenance:

  1. Maintenance reduces your HVAC system’s energy consumption by up to 15%, shaving dollars from your power bills.
  2. Regular HVAC tune-ups prevent major breakdowns and associated repair costs, savings you hundreds over the life of your equipment.
  3. Keeping up with your seasonal maintenance increases the operating life of your HVAC system by as much as 50%, which can save you thousands of dollars in the long run.

With savings potential like that, HVAC maintenance is definitely worth the investment! Now, we at Allstar Home Services know that you may want to DIY your heating tune-up in order to save a little more money, but we don’t recommend it. There are parts of an HVAC tune-up that you can do yourself, but many steps in the tune-up process can be dangerous if you’re not a trained professional.

HVAC Maintenance Steps You Can Take

Change or clean your filters at regular intervals. One of the easiest ways to save money on energy costs is to change your disposable filters and clean your reusable filters once every 30-90 days. This prevents dust buildup in your ducts and HVAC system and helps your system run more efficiently.

Check your thermostat settings to ensure they’re appropriate to the season. According to energy.gov, the ideal thermostat settings to maximize energy efficiency are 78℉ in summer and 68℉ in winter. If those temperatures are too extreme, set your thermostat to the closest comfortable temperature to keep your home energy-efficient and comfortable.
