The Importance of Furnace Maintenance During Fall in Colorado

Fall in Colorado isn’t just about the breathtaking change of colors, the crisp air, and preparing for the winter holidays. It’s also the perfect time to schedule your home’s furnace maintenance.

As temperatures start to drop, you’ll rely more and more on your heating system to keep your home cozy. Let’s make sure your furnace is ready when the temperatures drop.

How Do I Prepare My HVAC System for Fall?

You might be wondering what you should do to make sure your heating system runs great all winter. Here’s what we recommend:

  1. Inspect and replace air filters.
  2. Clean dust and debris from around the unit.
  3. Make sure your thermostat is working properly.
  4. Inspect your HVAC ducts for leaks and seal any leaks you find.
  5. Schedule a professional inspection and cleaning.

What Happens if I Avoid HVAC Maintenance?

If you’ve never performed routine maintenance on your heater, you’ll likely encounter some issues down the road, such as decreased airflow, more costly repairs, and even a shortened system life span.

Your heater may not be working as effectively as it used to, and it could be due to dust and debris clogging your vents, ducts, and main unit.

You’re not getting the heated air you want — it’s being blown into your home full of dust and particles. This makes your home more dusty and can lead to health problems in humans and pets.

Why Is Preventative HVAC Maintenance Important?

Think of HVAC maintenance like an annual checkup with your doctor – everything is probably still working as it should, but it’s good to run tests and make sure all the parts are in tiptop shape so it can keep working great year after year.

Preventative HVAC maintenance will save you money. By catching issues early, you can avoid costly repairs, and keeping your HVAC system clean means it runs more efficiently, costing you less in utilities.

A well-maintained HVAC system provides fast, consistent heating when you need it. Keeping your heater tuned up means clean, warm, comforting air is just a click away. 

Maintenance is also great for keeping your home safe from hazards like carbon monoxide poisoning, which can happen as a result of a failing heater. Check with your HVAC’s warranty. You may be required to have it serviced annually to maintain your heater’s warranty.
