Performing a preliminary check-up of your home before an actual tune-up with a professional helps you give better insight to your contractor regarding the condition of your HVAC system. Doing so also saves you from certain unnecessary expenses.
Here are 3 things that you should do:
- Use an air filter only for its intended period (check the packaging), and replace it with a new one as soon as necessary.
- Set the thermostat to Heat – turn it up a few extra degrees when switching the settings for the first time to make sure that it is properly working — and put in fresh batteries.
- Keep air vents open and free of blockage, even in rooms or areas that are rarely, or never, used or occupied.
