Fall Checklist To Prepare Your HVAC System for Winter

post img

Before the weather turns cold, it’s essential to prepare your heating system for winter to ensure it will keep your home and family comfortable and safe. We recommend completing the simple steps below.

Suburban HVAC is here for all your heating and cooling needs, including maintenance, repairs, and replacements.

Call 781-769-1515 to schedule your services.

Replace Your Air Filters 

Replacing or cleaning your air filters every 30–60 days will prevent your system from working overtime. A clogged or dirty air filter can strain your system, leading to higher monthly bills and equipment malfunction.

Clean Around the Furnace

Letting things pile up around your furnace in the off-season is not uncommon. Before you turn it on for the first time, remove anything within 3 feet of the furnace, including furniture, bedding, and window treatments. It’s also the right time to vacuum dust or pet dander from the furnace’s access panel. 

If you notice anything that doesn’t look right, contact the professionals at Suburban HVAC for help. Call 781-769-1515 to schedule services.

Check Your Carbon Monoxide & Smoke Detectors. 

Functioning carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are crucial if your furnace operates on gas. Change the batteries in your alarms and test your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors to ensure they’re working correctly. 

Schedule a Professional Tune-Up

It’s always ideal to schedule professional maintenance with the team at Suburban HVAC before the heating season. We’ll tune up your system and address any minor issues to prevent breakdowns mid-winter.
