Three Mistakes Homeowners Make When Switching to Heat This Fall

switching to heat

Many homeowners wind up calling emergency HVAC services over avoidable mistakes. Save yourself time and money by avoiding these common pitfalls.

Avoiding Routine HVAC Maintenance Services

It’s important to have your HVAC unit checked before turning on the AC in the summer and the heat in the winter. A routine check-up can help your HVAC technician fix small problems before they become serious. Furthermore, regular maintenance lengthens your HVAC’s lifespan.

Setting the Thermostat Too High or Too Low

Thermostats are not car accelerators. They won’t warm the house faster if you turn the heat way up. It’s also a bad idea to turn them too low at night. Keep the home at a consistent temperature all the time. It’ll keep your energy bills low and avoid thermostat problems.

Ignoring the Air Filters Until You Need HVAC Services

Air filters help keep your home’s air clean. You’ll need to change them often if you want your HVAC unit to run correctly. How often you change them depends on various factors. If you live alone in a small house, you can change the filters once every two to three months. If you have indoor pets and kids, change them monthly. You may need to replace them more than once a month if you have allergies or breathing problems.
