Making Your Home Ready for Winter

Here are some tips from Air and Water Factor for making your home ready for winter!

Winter will soon be here in Arizona, so here are a few tips from Air and Water Factor to help you get your home heating system wintertime ready!

Making your home wintertime ready

Tip #1 – Replace your HVAC Duct Filters

The most common problem that heating systems have is clean filtration. And believe it or not, this begins with the ductwork filtration system inside your home. A home heating unit works by drawing air from inside your home, into a heater, introducing warm air into the ductwork and then circulating the warm air inside your home. If these vents and the ductwork filters are clogged up with dust and debris, the home heating units simply won’t operate with peak efficiency. This can lead to several issues including:

  • Breathing unhealthy air when dust and debris is circulated and blown into your home
  • Causes the HVAC system to draw more power to circulate the air inside your home
  • Increases monthly energy bills due to having to work harder to heat your home

This is why the first step for preparing your home for winter is to replace all of the HVAC ductwork filters.

Tip #2 – Dust the House – Completely

The second easy step you can take to prepare your home for winter and ensure your heating system runs as smooth as possible is to dust your house – completely from top to bottom. Dust that finds itself trapped on vents, appliances, lampshades, and other areas will circulate through the home when the hot air is blown into your home. And after you’ve just replaced your filters, you’ll want to ensure to eliminate as much dust inside your home as possible – so these filters don’t become trapped with debris and cause the above conditions to occur. This is why we suggest spending a few hours dusting your home as much as possible to remove the debris from the house. Doing this will significantly:

  • Improve the air quality inside your home
  • Potentially reduce sickness and common colds, flu virus from spreading
  • Help improve the heating efficiency of the HVAC system
  • Save money on your monthly electrical bills

Tip #3 – Have the Home Heating System Professionally Inspected

It is recommended that the home heating system, whether it’s an all-in-one HVAC system, a furnace or even a heat-pump system to be inspected and tuned-up by a professional HVAC repair specialist before winter hits. During this inspection, they will check the following, and more:

  • Make sure all belts are tight and replaced if needed and change filters inside the heating system
  • Inspect all fluid levels and lubricants and top them off
  • Make all mechanical devices are properly clean and free of debris

As winter approaches, your home heating system will begin to get quite a workout. So be proactive by simply following these three easy steps for making sure your home heating unit will operate under peak efficiency and keep your energy bills low this winter.
