Summer is still in full swing, but before you know it, autumn will be here. Thinking ahead to the changing season is important. Here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to planning for your fall HVAC maintenance.

#1: Call now to get your maintenance appointment scheduled.
Regular maintenance is an important part of keeping your HVAC system running at optimal efficiency. If you neglect this, you could risk an unexpected system breakdown, which could translate to expensive repairs. Basic maintenance helps prolong the life of your system and ensures that a professional spots any potential problem spots before they become full blown issues. Fall is the best time of the year to get your system serviced by our team at Specialty Heating and Cooling. Call us now to get your appointment scheduled.

#2: Upgrade your thermostat.
How old is your thermostat? If you have an old, out of date thermostat, replace it with a programmable thermostat that you can use to your advantage. These devices regulate the temperature in your home – even when you’re gone! Set your desired temperature, then let the thermostat adjust your HVAC system as needed. These are inexpensive ways to help you save up to 20% on your utility bill annually.

#3: Stay on top of air filter cleaning and replacement.
Your air filters are easy to clean or replace. Unfortunately, many homeowners forget about this task. We recommend monthly or bi-monthly filter changes or cleaning. This helps bolster indoor air quality, which helps with cleaner and healthier air in your home this autumn. Not to mention, air filters that allow the air to flow properly helps the system function as it’s intended.
