The weather has already started to mellow out a bit (finally!), and the first official day of fall is September 22! As you transition your wardrobe from shorts to sweaters, you’ll also need to transition your home and your HVAC unit to best accommodate those cooler temps. Here are our top tips for making that changeover from summer to fall go as smooth as possible.
Clean or Replace Your Air Filter
Keep all those pesky summer allergens out of your home and reduce indoor contaminants in the cooler months by cleaning or replacing your air filter. If you wait too long to do this, increased buildup in your filter will obstruct pure air circulation. Plus, replacing your filter often improves your HVAC’s fuel efficiency and ultimately saves you money in the long term.
Use Your AC less When It’s Cooler
While it’s definitely going to still be warm here for at least a couple more weeks (*sigh*), it’s at least getting cooler at night now. When the temps drop to the 70s, give your AC a break and open up your windows or turn on your ceiling fans. This is another great way to air out your home!
Get a Smart Thermostat
We highly recommend smart thermostats for all of our clients. They have the ability to learn a household’s pattern and adjust heating and cooling according to when you are home or away, which helps keep you and your family comfortable as well as save you money on your energy bill.
Get Your AC Checked Out and Cleaned
The beginning of a new season is the perfect time to schedule a clean and check for your AC unit. This way, you’ll catch any issues before they turn into a huge problem—and save money!
