With fall just around the corner, you’ll need to turn on your heating system before you know it. If your heater isn’t performing up to par, there are some easy steps you can take to remedy early-season HVAC issues. Consider the following solutions to early fall problems that your HVAC system might encounter.

Issues When You First Turn on the System

When you first turn your HVAC system to heat, you may notice a small smell that quickly dissipates. Brief odors are common for heaters that have not been used for a while. If the smell or any noises are present after the first day of operation, however, it’s probably a good time for a professional to repair or provide you with maintenance service.

Debris Blocking Your System

It’s quite common for debris to block your external unit components, especially when the leaves of autumn start to fall. Unfortunately, this could result in your unit underperforming. Be sure to clean off your outdoor unit before cold weather hits. After all, you don’t want to be messing around outside when it’s snowing.

Keep Your Air Filter Clean and Schedule a Tune-Up

Your air filter may also cause your heater to expel allergens into the air. That’s why you should replace the air filter every three months. This is a very simple task that any homeowner can complete. However, you will also need a professional tune-up at least once a year. The system may completely shut down if maintenance is deferred for a significant period. Removing debris and changing the air filter can help you save on energy costs and potentially costly repairs. If the issues persist, your ducting may need to be cleaned to resolve the issue. At [company_name], we have expert technicians who can diagnose the problem and get it fixed quickly for you.
