It may not feel that cool quite yet, but Cincinnati’s fall weather is just around the corner! As a homeowner, what can you do to prepare your home and heating and cooling system for this seasonal change? Herrmann Services suggests these three steps to get your home ready for fall.
Schedule a Furnace Tune-Up
It’s almost time to begin using your home’s furnace again. However, before you turn it on in full force, it’s always a good idea to schedule a furnace tune-up. This ensures that everything is in order and is working properly. Herrmann Services offers the most thorough furnace tune-ups in Cincinnati that will leave your furnace restored and running like new.
Change Your Heating & Cooling System’s Air Filters
To make sure you’re really ready for the cooler months, make sure you clean or change the air filters in your home’s heating and cooling system. Over the summer, dirt, dust, and other particles may have built up on its filters. Over time, this can clog up your system, putting unnecessary strain on it. At Herrmann Services, we recommend changing the air filters in your heating and cooling system every 1 to 3 months, depending on the type of filters you have in your system. Changing your air filter helps to prevent more serious problems down the road, like breakdowns that can cost you a lot more money than regular maintenance would.
Change Batteries in Carbon Monoxide Detectors & Smoke Alarms
Did you forget to do this in the spring? Either way, be sure to check the battery levels of your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors since you’re already performing other regular maintenance on your home’s furnace system or heat pump. Changing the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors can give you a little peace of mind and helps to ensure the safety of your family.
