If you want to ensure that your home stays comfortable all autumn long, there are a few things you can do.

Replace Your Air Filter
One of the most important things you can do to prepare your HVAC system for fall is to replace the air filter. A clean filter will help improve airflow and keep your system running more efficiently. If you neglect replacing your air filter, you could risk the possibility of allowing indoor contaminants, like dirt and dust, into your home’s air. This can also worsen allergy and asthma symptoms. Check your air filter at least every 60 to 90 days and replace it with a new one as needed.
Schedule Seasonal Maintenance
It's also a good idea to schedule seasonal maintenance for your HVAC system. This will help ensure that it's running properly and can prevent potential problems down the road. If you don’t keep up with seasonal HVAC maintenance, you might deal with some costly repairs in the future. This can be avoided by scheduling a maintenance appointment with Intelligent Air Services, LLC to ensure your HVAC system is working properly.
Clean the Outdoor Unit
Another important task you'll want to take care of before fall arrives is cleaning the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. This will help remove any dirt and debris that could potentially cause problems during the autumn months. As you’ve probably noticed, outdoor debris like leaves and branches can easily clog your outdoor HVAC unit, which affects your system’s performance. Always try to keep at least 2 to 3 feet of clear space around your unit.
Seal Air Leaks
Finally, be sure to check for any air leaks around your home and seal them up if necessary. Doing this will help keep the air inside your home and prevent your energy bills from skyrocketing.
By following these tips, you can rest assured that your HVAC system will be ready to take on the cooler temperatures of fall. For more information on seasonal maintenance or to schedule an appointment, contact our team today by calling (512) 675-6997 or filling out our online contact form.
