Living on the eastern seaboard brings with it a definite change of seasons that can easily be felt now that fall is in full swing. This means it’s time for local homeowners to make the transition from cooling to heating. The fact that the change in weather will be gradual will give you the time you need to take care of the HVAC tasks that must be completed before the much cooler weather sets in.

Leave Air Conditioning Season Behind

Preparing to wrap up air conditioning season may, in fact, involve actually wrapping up your AC unit to protect it during the colder months and keep it from collecting debris while it’s not in use. But, whether your unit is a central air conditioner that’s only in use during the summer months or a heat pump that also provides heat during the winter, you’ll need to do some seasonal maintenance on your system. Cleaning and visually inspecting your AC system for any visible damage is an important preliminary to storing your unit through the fall and winter. For the inexperienced HVAC system owner, it may be wisest to call Custom Aire and leave the job to our experienced technicians.

Prepare for Heating Season

Routine maintenance such as changing your HVAC air filter and having your heating system tuned up prior to its first use of the season is the best way to keep your system running efficiently while providing all the warmth you need during the colder months. Inspecting your air ducts for leaks or damage is also a good idea before the weather turns cold. It always pays to learn everything you can about home heating to help ensure that you’ll be ready to heat your home when the cold weather sets in.
