The transitioning weather during the fall season can strain your HVAC. For instance, you might have cool nights and warm days, causing you to adjust your HVAC as temperatures fluctuate. Strain can rapidly wear out your HVAC equipment.
Fortunately, you can run your HVAC without any worries using the following tips from Acker Heating & Cooling, a reliable local heating systems company.
Raise Your Thermostat Settings
Raising your thermostat settings can increase your savings during fall. Use the outside temperature as your reference. Don’t turn off your HVAC completely because it will cause the system to work harder and suffer from unnecessary wear.
Use the Automatic Setting
Your thermostat’s automatic setting relies on its sensors to run only when the temperature gets too hot or cold. This feature can let the system ride the fluctuating temperatures of fall and help you reduce energy expenses and preserve the lifespan of your unit.
Turn on Your Ceiling Fans
Turn on fans in your home to improve indoor air circulation. Ceiling fans help spread cool air in a room and keep you comfortable even at low thermostat settings.
Hire Local Contractors for Maintenance
Your HVAC must be clean and working properly to be energy-efficient and reliable. Hire a local air conditioning and heating contractor to inspect your system. They can clean up the indoor unit and remove leaves, branches, and other debris from the outdoor unit.
Have Insulation Checks and Upgrades
Your HVAC can produce optimal temperatures with proper home insulation. Hire a contractor to check and repair your insulation in the attic, drywall, and basement. You can also call specialists to check and replace your window and door seals. Insulating your home during the fall season will help keep the chilling cold of the coming winter at bay.
