Lend Your HVAC Unit a Helping Hand
There are a few simple things that you can do to make it easier for you and your heating unit to survive the winter. The steps don’t require any advanced skills.
Consider Ordering Extra Fuel
Does your HVAC unit operate on heating oil? If it does, now’s the time to place your order for more fuel. Once the weather takes a turn for the worse, the oil company may not be able to get its trucks on the road for several days. When the trucks finally resume deliveries, it could be a long time before they’re able to get to everyone who ordered after the snowstorm hit.
Don’t force your HVAC unit to work harder than necessary. Make the job of the unit easier by sealing cracks around doors and windows. It’s also a good idea to make sure that you have the recommended amount of insulation in your attic.
Replace the HVAC Filter
Changing the air filter is a maintenance chore that requires a time investment of only a few minutes to complete, but it returns huge dividends. A heating unit that breathes freely lasts longer. Never let an old filter remain in place for more than three months. Check the filter manufacturer’s paperwork to learn how long the filter is expected to last. Some filters last only a month.
