Winter is nearly upon us, and that means it’s time to check up on seasonal HVAC maintenance. Taking care of a few quick tasks now will help you ensure your system keeps purring all through the coldest months of the year and into a warm, toasty 2018.

Take time to prepare your HVAC system for winter with these six tips:

1) Update Your Air Filter: Depending on your HVAC unit, you may need to clean out your filter or replace it. Keeping your air filter tidy improves your air circulation.

2) Clear Out Debris: Snow and slush can impair your HVAC system and may even cause it to malfunction. After snowfall, take a moment to ensure components and vents are clear.

3) Cover External Components: Covering your air conditioner can protect it when weather gets rough. That’s one less thing to worry about, since you won’t be needing AC soon!

4) Winterize Your Landscaping: Shrubs can safeguard your HVAC, providing a layer of protection against snow and storms. Plus, they add a splash of color in the cold.

5) Calibrate Your Thermostat: Your thermostat is the brain of your HVAC system. A quick calibration lets it work at peak efficiency during high-usage seasons like winter.

6) Get Your HVAC Inspected: The last thing you want is to lose heat in the midst of winter. A professional service technician can spot issues before they become serious.
