Fall HVAC Maintenance Checklist

Fall HVAC Maintenance Checklist In Northwest Florida

While it’s still sweltering hot here in Niceville, cool fall weather will eventually come around. During this transitional time period, you’ll often hear us reminding you to enroll in a maintenance plan or schedule your fall tune-up. This is for good reason! It’s important to prepare for cold weather before it hits to keep things running smoothly throughout the season. It’s also a great way to ensure you’re comfortable and your energy bills are low this fall.  

Get Ahead of Schedule

As mentioned above, you should have your HVAC system serviced before cooler weather hits Northwest Florida. There are a few reasons for this! First, necessary repairs are sometimes caught during HVAC maintenance inspections. Having these repairs performed before you need your furnace or heat pump is a huge relief. Nobody wants to be without heat on the first chilly night of fall. Secondly, summer is our busiest season. As the days start to cool off, we have more appointments available sooner to service your system. Take advantage of the off-season to schedule your maintenance visit at a time which is convenient for you.

DIY Fall HVAC Maintenance Checklist

Besides scheduling your fall maintenance visit, there are a few other tasks you can do to prepare your HVAC system for fall as well! Clear branches, vegetation, or fallen foliage from around your outdoor unit. These leaves and plants can block your condenser and therefore obstruct airflow to and through the unit. You should also be sure to replace your system’s air filters. For the average home, it’s best to change your filters every 1-3 months, more often if you have pets or allergy sufferers in the home.
