Home maintenance is obviously something that you should conduct all year long, but November is the perfect time to take care of HVAC duties to ensure warmth throughout the winter season. To help you out, we’ve compiled four tasks that you can complete right now.
You need to have your heating equipment checked every year to ensure that it doesn’t break down or cause any comfort problems throughout the winter season. A professional technician will be able to help ensure the efficiency of the system, prolong its lifespan, and lessen the possibility of energy waste.
You always want to hire an HVAC technician to perform maintenance on your heating equipment once per year, but prior to the appointment, it’s a good idea to check out the equipment yourself. Basically, what you want to do is turn on the system and see if it appears to be running properly, and then relay any potential issues to the technician. This can save a lot of time and energy during a maintenance call.
Smoke detectors typically last for a long time, but like any device, they can run out of power or stop operating properly. If the battery level is okay, then hit the test button to ensure that it is in good working order. This is especially important now that you’ll be using your heating equipment again to stay warm during the winter season.
Switching your current thermostat to a more advanced model can help you gain better control over your heating needs and decrease your energy usage. Depending on the type that you choose, you can have features such as remote access, weather forecasts, energy usage reports, and several other functionalities that will assist you in keeping warm over the winter season.
