How to Maintain Your HVAC System in Winter

Putting Cover on HVAC System

Winter is just around the corner and it's time to make sure your HVAC system is ready to keep you warm and comfortable throughout the season. With proper maintenance, you can reduce energy costs, increase the lifespan of your system, and avoid costly repairs. Here's what you need to know to maintain your HVAC system in winter:

1. Change Your Air Filters Regularly

One of the easiest and most important things you can do to maintain your HVAC system is to change your air filters regularly. Dirty filters can restrict airflow and cause your system to work harder, leading to higher energy bills and potentially damaging your system. Check your filters every month and replace them at least every three months.

2. Keep Your Vents & Ducts Clean

Dust, dirt, and debris can accumulate in your vents and ducts, reducing airflow and making your system work harder. Clean your vents and ducts regularly to keep them free of debris.

3. Schedule Annual Maintenance

Regular maintenance by a professional HVAC technician can help identify and address any issues before they become major problems. Schedule an annual maintenance appointment to ensure your system is running efficiently and effectively throughout the winter.

4. Check Your Thermostat Settings

Make sure your thermostat is set to the right temperature for your comfort and energy efficiency. Lowering your thermostat by a few degrees can save you money on your energy bills without sacrificing comfort.

5. Insulate Your Home

Proper insulation can help your HVAC system work more efficiently by reducing heat loss in your home. Seal air leaks, add weather stripping to doors and windows, and insulate your attic and walls to keep your home warm and cozy.
