Ohio temperatures are still hot, but this summer’s extreme heat wave finally seems to be cooling down. At this point, you might even be able to take a break from air conditioning and open the windows up for some fresh air on occasion. In the midst of anticipating the upcoming fall temperatures, however, don’t forget to maintain your HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) unit for optimal performance year-round.

Post-Summer Upkeep

Reward your AC unit for a job well-done this summer by servicing it. After running continually for an entire summer, it may need a simple tune-up. We can inspect your unit and complete any air conditioning repair or regular maintenance that it might need, like the following:
  • Lubricate moving parts
  • Check refrigerant charge levels
  • Change filters
  • Make any necessary changes to thermostats
  • Adjust belt tension
  • Check condenser air temperature
The government’s Energy Star  program also provides other maintenance tips for getting the best results and most efficiency from your HVAC system. Remember, regularly servicing your heating and cooling units not only ensures that you’re prepared for the heat next summer in OH, but it also extends the life of your systems.

Winter Prep

Most people with an HVAC system have some components that the air conditioning and the heating systems share, like the filters, ductwork, and the blower. It’s often smart to do air duct cleaning in the fall after a long summer of constant use. If you have the vents cleaned and the filters replaced, you’ll ensure that your air quality continues to be ideal throughout the winter. A fall AC maintenance and ventilation check is also a convenient time to have your heating serviced, as well. After looking at your cooling unit, we can make sure your heating system is ready to go for the winter. Believe it or not, but cooler temperatures are coming, and you’ll want to make sure that your heating unit is ready to perform optimally before they come.
