When Should Homeowners Schedule HVAC Maintenance?
The team at Kinkaid recommends professional HVAC maintenance services twice a year — once in the spring to prepare your A/C unit for the summer, and once in the fall to ensure reliable heating throughout the cold months. Homeowners can take advantage of our annual HVAC tune-up deals or keep up with maintenance needs by enrolling in one of our comprehensive service plans.
DIY Fall HVAC Maintenance
While regular, professional maintenance services are essential to the health and longevity of your HVAC system, there’s plenty homeowners can do in between visits. To help ensure your unit runs smoothly right when you need it the most, be sure to take care of the following simple fall HVAC maintenance tasks:
- Change Air Filters — HVAC air filters should be changed every 30–90 days, depending on your lifestyle, location and number of pets in the home.
- Change Thermostat Batteries — It all starts with the thermostat. Faulty or dead batteries can often send homeowners on a wild goose chase of troubleshooting, only to find the problem lies with the thermostat. Swap out batteries that have been in use for an extended period of time to help save time and headaches later on.
- Clean the Outdoor Unit — Fall is the season when homeowners need to pay the most attention to their outdoor condenser units. Falling leaves, twigs, seeds, nuts and other types of natural debris can get caught in your condenser unit’s metal fins, blocking airflow or potentially causing damage. If any of these make their way into your unit, they can collect moisture, creating a risk for mold growth or corrosion. Be sure to remove any trapped debris, and keep the area around your condenser unit clean, trimming back nearby flora if necessary.
