Winterizing Your HVAC System

Oct 1, 2022

Although winter in the south can be mild, the colder months can still affect your HVAC system. To avoid mid-season breakdowns and critical repairs, it’s important to prepare your HVAC unit for the lower temperatures.

Change the Filter

A dirty filter can make your system much less efficient. It’s also a good idea to clean your air vents before switching over to heat.

Test Your System

Turn your heat on at least three times while the temperature is still mild outside. This will allow you to test your system before you absolutely need it.

Conduct a Visual Inspection

Make sure there’s at least a 3ft clearing all the way around your unit. It’s important for the furnace to breathe, so remove anything draped or hanging on the system and any other items cluttering up the space.

Schedule Regular Maintenance

One of the best ways you can prepare your system for winter is by scheduling a routine checkup with one of our certified technicians. They will inspect your unit to ensure it’s running efficiently and is ready for the upcoming season.
