Is Your HVAC Unit Ready for Winter in West Knoxville?
Some of the harshest weather is still yet to come before springtime arrives. January and February are some of the toughest months to get through when it comes to snow, ice, and cold rains, and in some areas of the country, March can be pretty unpleasant, too!
You want to be ready for whatever comes and be able to keep your family, employees, and yourself warm and dry while the cold winds blow. Is your HVAC unit ready for an icy blast?
There’s still time to take care of that!
If there are any undone repairs on your HVAC, get them done now, since cold and snow will almost certainly make any standing issues worse. Double check that the system is working efficiently, and if it isn’t, call a licensed professional to come get things in working order.
Most HVAC units are located outside in the elements and have been covered with dirt, bugs, and debris after a long, hot, West Knoxville summer. Take some time and wash your unit off with a garden hose or damp cloth, ensuring that none of last season’s dirt creates any problems for you during this season’s cold and wet.
If you haven’t already had the filters changed, there’s still time to do so. If your heating consumption is pretty normal, then it’s suggested that filters are changed monthly, to keep your HVAC working well during peak usage times.
Another good idea is to test your thermostat to see how long it takes for your unit to bring the temperature up to where it is set. If it takes too long, a visit from a West Knoxville HVAC professional might be in order.
If you have separate heating and cooling units, cold weather is the perfect time to look at your air conditioner to make sure it’s ready for the heat that is just around the corner!
