HVAC maintenance might be far from your mind during these hot, sunny summer days, but fall will be here in a blink. So, is your heating system ready? With the fall season just ahead, we’ve got what you need to know about prepping your HVAC system for cooler weather.

Why is Maintenance Important?

Even in South Carolina’s mild climate, our HVAC systems tend to run nearly year-round. With so much use, it needs regular attention and service to be sure it’s functioning as it should and isn’t on the verge of a breakdown.

How Can You Prep for Cooler Weather?

HVAC maintenance is important in the spring before the hot summer months and in the fall before cooler weather sets in. Ensuring your heating system is ready for action to keep your home cozy and your family warm, especially in time for the holiday season. Here’s what it should include:

  • Replace the air filter
  • Check the burner
  • Inspect heating elements
  • Check belts
  • Inspect wiring and electrical
  • Check and calibrate thermostats
  • Check heat pump
