3 Important HVAC Vacation Preparations You Need to Make

Vacation season is almost here, and it’s a great time to think about how to prepare your HVAC system for your absence while on a trip. Homeowners often make preparations for the family pet and the mail, but they tend to forget the HVAC system requires some attention too. Here are three essential HVAC preparations you can make to protect your system:

#1: Raise the Thermostat

There’s no point in cooling an empty home, so go ahead and raise the thermostat several degrees. Experts recommend setting it at 80 degrees, which will protect your home from becoming too hot and keep it from running nonstop while you are away. If you have a programmable thermostat, you can set it to cool off your home on the day of your arrival.

#2: Change the Air Filter

By changing the air filter before you leave for vacation, you’ll ensure the system runs optimally while you are gone and is ready to go when you return. A dirty air filter can cause your AC to break down, and that’s the last thing you want to deal with after a fun vacation. 

#4: Schedule HVAC Maintenance

If you haven’t had a recent maintenance visit from your local HVAC professional, now is an ideal time to schedule one. Your technician will be able to catch any underlying issues with your system to keep it working optimally while you are away and when you return.Let the friendly team of professionals at Wilson’s Refrigeration & Air help you get your HVAC ready before you leave on vacation.
