Phoenix may not have to worry about snow, but it certainly gets its share of low temperatures during the winter. A properly working heating system is essential to helping you stay warm and snug when the temperatures drop outside.
Don’t wait until you need HVAC repair to get your system inspected. If you prepare your system now and get the right HVAC maintenance, you can make sure you aren’t stuck in the cold this winter because your system is out of commission.
Here are a few things you can do now to prepare your HVAC system for the Phoenix winter:
Change the Filter
Perhaps the most important HVAC “repair” that you might need to do preemptively is to change the filter. Dust and dirt can build up in the filter all year long, even when the system is not in use. A clogged filter can make the system run less efficiently and can lead to other problems that require repair. Be proactive and change the filter before the season starts.
Update the Thermostat
Older thermostats can lose their accuracy over time. You may think that you are setting the thermostat low, but your system may actually be putting out more heat than you need, costing you a lot in energy expenses.
If you have an older thermostat, consider updating it to a more accurate model. Digital thermostats not only provide greater accuracy, but they can also be programmed to follow a schedule. They can automatically lower the temperature during certain hours, such as when you are at work, to save you money on electricity. They can then raise the temperature during the hours you expect to be at home.
Schedule an Inspection
You can certainly inspect your system yourself, but only a trained professional can identify all potential problems. An HVAC technician can inspect your unit to make sure all the parts are working properly and to discover any signs of leaks or other damages. The technician can then perform whatever heat pump repairs or maintenance is necessary to keep your system in top working order all season long. You can rest easy knowing that your system has received all the attention it needs from someone who has the right training and experience.
