Preparing your Dayton heating and air conditioning unit before winter can be key in keeping up its longevity. Follow some easy steps to make sure it is ready for winter.
1. Thermostat: It's always a good idea to check your thermostat to make sure it's working properly. On a cool morning, try turning on the heat to the temperature you are going to want it on during the winter. If the HVAC Dayton unit isn't able to get up to that temperature, you may have a problem that needs dealt with before the freezing temperatures come.
2. Air Vents: Go around the house and make sure there is nothing covering the air conditioning vents. If they are blocked or air is restricted, that needs to be taken care of quickly. If the HVAC system doesn't receive the proper amount of air flow, it works harder and puts more stress on the Dayton heating and air conditioning unit. That will cut down on the amount of life it will operate for.
3. AIr Filters: If you aren't already in the habit of changing out the air filters, this will be critical at the turn of the season. Not only does it make the air you breath cleaner, it keeps a lot of build up from occurring in the HVAC Datyon system itself. The more dust and dirt that collect, the greater the chance of a break down. That costs much more than an air filter.
4. Noises: Listen for unusual noises that may indicate something is wearing out or isn't quite right. If you hear anything out of the ordinary, give HVAC Dayton a call. Catching a problem early saves you in the long run.
5. Get a 25 point inspection done on the system: Have one of our techs come out and inspect your entire system. We will keep it running effectively and efficiently. Do this before the harsh weather hits to prevent an emergency situation. It may sound cliche or just a sales push, but preventing break downs before the worst time they could happen is very important. Don't leave your family in the cold, just have a quick inspection done to ensure comfort, quality, and affordability. Call HVAC Dayton for your heating and air conditioning needs. 937-470-1759
