When the fall season arrives, many home owners begin to enjoy the coolness of the outdoors. At J & M Air Conditioning & Heating, we see many of our customers turning off their air conditioning systems and opening up windows to enjoy the fresh air. Home owners can easily save on comfort costs during this time as there is no need for air conditioning or heat, simply enjoy the nature’s temperature. However, this time is ideal for pre-winter maintenance. Your air conditioning system needs to be shut down for the winter while your heating unit needs to be prepped for operation. From heat pumps to furnace units, each option needs to be inspected and cleaned for a fully-functioning winter season of operation.
Your HVAC equipment is a precious commodity that keeps you comfortable year round. Let our team of technicians provide a variety of services throughout the year to keep your home as comfortable as possible. Below is as small guide to what we and you can do during the fall season as a measure of pre- winter maintenance.
Prepping Your Air Conditioning System To Be Non-Operational
If you have a single operating air conditioning system, the unit will need to be inspected and cleaned before being turned off for the winter. An inspection by our technicians will ensure your unit is functioning as it should and is ready to be closed down until summer arrives. When you have a portable air conditioning such as a window unit, proper storage is key to the unit continuing to function each and every year. Be sure to store the AC unit in a dry and clean area to prevent any damage to the unit.
Pre-winter Maintenance for your Heating System
Furnace maintenance, central unit services and more can be accessed here at J & M Air Conditioning & Heating. We are well-equipped for your winter needs, offering full inspections of your heating units.
Before the harsh winter arrives, your heating unit needs to be in top condition. With an inspection, our technicians will go over every component. We ensure that your outdoor system as well as indoor portion of the unit are operating correctly. Any lubrication, replacement parts or repairs are conducted as they are come across to keep your unit in proper working order.
Also included in maintenance service is cleaning of the unit. When cleaned, the system will be ready to operate. If you wake up one morning and your home is freezing due to a temperature drop, simply flip the unit to heat and the unit will do the rest. Your home will quickly heat up and provide a comfortable space for you and your family.
What You Can Do?
There are steps that you can take on your own to establish a heating unit that is ready to function. Change out the filter of the unit so you have a clean and fresh filter ready to provide clean air quality in the home. Provide fresh batteries for your thermostat, helping your unit to reach the set temperature with ease. You can also clean out around the outdoor portion of your heating system by removing any debris, leaves or grass that may have grown up over the summer months.
