How Can You Prepare Your HVAC System For Back To School?  

Sep 16, 2022 | Uncategorized

Fall is here. It’s hardly believable how fast summer went. Fall is a busy time of the year as many of us are welcoming a new school year, which can be both exciting and stressful at the same time. Lots of preparations go into the back-to-school season in order to start a school year off strong. But don’t forget to include your HVAC system in with the seasonal preparations. With the transition in weather, you will want to be ready for whatever the season throws your way. Don’t know where to start? Don’t worry; Mason Heating & Air is here to help you ring in a strong and solid school year! 

Has Your Thermostat Been Reprogrammed for the Weather Transition?    

The temperatures become less consistent as we go from summer to fall. It may be sunny and hot one day, but the next, there’s a cold chill. Because temperature fluctuations are so common, have you yet found the ideal balance for your house? You can prevent your furnace from overworking itself by adjusting your thermostat now. If you have a smart or programmable thermostat, setting your temperature to rise when you leave for school and lower back down when everyone else comes home is an excellent approach to extend the life of your system while also lowering its energy usage. If you don’t already have a more efficient thermostat but are thinking about buying one, several cost-effective options are available! For further information, do not hesitate to contact us. 

Has Your Furnace Been Powered On Recently?    

Before you turn on your heating system for the year, there are a couple of things we recommend doing first: 

  1. Before you utilize your heating system for the first time this season, make sure to clean it of any dust or debris that has built up. It’s probable that over the spring and summer months, dust and other particles have accumulated on the surface of your device. 
  1. It’s critical to allow your heating system time to adjust to the weather and new temperatures. As a result, it isn’t necessary to immediately turn on the heat at a high setting. Simply start with a lower temperature to ensure that your furnace works accordingly. 

Have You Changed Your HVAC Air Filter This Season?     

The start of a new school year is here, which unfortunately means that germs and viruses are in abundance. To decrease the possibility of germs being circulated throughout your home, be sure to change your HVAC system’s air filters every 1-2 months, as experts recommend. Though your children may still be exposed to germs and airborne contaminants at school, you can still have some measure of control over how far these illnesses propagate within your own home.
