Is it time for you to switch between air conditioning and heating? With fall in full force in Las Vegas, the nights and mornings are becoming cold. Before the temperatures really start to drop you need to make sure to transition your HVAC system from cooling to heating. Follow our helpful tips below to prepare your home for fall and winter. Following these tips is the perfect way to transition from the cooling to the heating season in your home, so you can save energy and money.
Transition Your HVAC System From Cooling To Heating
Make sure your home is ready for the fall and winter months.
Switch Your Ceiling Fans To Clockwise
Ceiling fans should be rotated so they go clockwise, which will help circulate the air, while not creating a cool draft and pushing warm air down.
Adjust Your Thermostat
Slowly work towards your preferred temperature by moving just a couple of degrees every thirty minutes or so. Making too big of a difference in temperature while switching systems can strain your HVAC system and cause technical problems. Save energy during the winter by setting your thermostat to 68 degrees while you’re awake and lowering it while sleeping or while you’re not home.
Schedule Heating Maintenance
Before you turn on your heating system it’s very important to get your annual heating tune-up service. This is a must do fall home maintenance task that can save you up to 50% on your energy bills and will help ensure your furnace will have no breakdowns during the cold winter. Just like your car needs to be maintained to function properly you need to do the same with your HVAC system. Scheduling HVAC maintenance once in the fall and once in the spring will help you SAVE HUGE in the long run. Save even more money with our annual HVAC maintenance plans to ensure you get your system checked out twice a year.
Check And Change Your Home Air Filter
Checking and changing your HVAC air filter each month will ensure your heater will operate efficiently. Having a clean air filter will also help you maintain safe indoor air quality and avoid costly repairs. Here’s a helpful guide on how to change a home filter, click HERE.
Check For Good Airflow At Your Registers
Go around your house and make sure none of your registers in your home are blocked by any furniture or rugs as well as making sure they are opened and not closed. A blocked register will make your heating system work harder and will not properly keep your home warm.
Air Seal Your Home
Make sure your home is properly sealed at your windows and exterior doors so no air can come in or out. During the beginning of fall you should check if you need to replace any weather stripping around the doors or windows. Draft snakes are another good option to help seal your home.
