West Tennessee is starting to experience cooler mornings. With Fall peaking from around the corner, it will soon be time to turn the thermostat from cool to heat. There are things that you as the homeowner can do around your home to make sure things run smooth, but you also need an experienced HVAC technician to regularly maintain your unit through the seasons as well. Cagle Service offers a Preventative Maintenance Program to keep your unit running at it’s best through all seasons.
As the homeowner, there are some things you can do around your home to help the life of your HVAC unit:
1) Filters: Homeowners are recommended to change the air filters in their home once a month, especially in high pollen areas. Not only does that help air flow but also keeps allergens and dust from getting into the air system. (Read more on the importance of changing your air filters)
2) Routine Cleaning/Dusting: With the cooler temps coming in, some people are tempted to raise the windows to let fresh air in and give the HVAC unit a break. Dust, mold, allergens, etc. can get inside and settle within the home. Without cleaning and dusting, all of the allergens, dust, and other particles will circulate inside, lowering the quality of air.
