Fall HVAC Tips

Fall HVAC Tips

You need to ensure your HVAC system is running well during the fall. If you would want more comfort during the long cold days, your system should be in good working condition. Are you still in doubt whether you need fall HVAC maintenance services? There are numerous benefits. 

First, it is a way of keeping things clean and clear. Note that a lot of dirt may have accumulated in your equipment during the summer. Fall offers an opportunity to deal with this mess by getting rid of the dust and any other debris. In some cases, the nearby bushes may grow, and the leaves may get stuck in the unit’s surface, which results in reduced airflow. Through maintenance, you can clear the bushes and ensure the system is working efficiently. Another benefit of regular maintenance during the season is that you will enjoy better indoor air quality. Here are some HVAC services you should consider:

Cleaning the Vents
Dust tends to accumulate in an HVAC system during the summer. Therefore, take the time to check the vents for any debris. This is a crucial maintenance task as even a small amount of dust can significantly reduce your unit's efficiency. If that happens, you will notice increased monthly bills.

Checking the Thermostat
The leaves that fall during autumn may be beautiful, but they can be disastrous for your unit. Check the thermostat to confirm that the equipment is not being overworked. If it shows accurate temperature readings, then it’s in good working condition. If you have a programmable thermostat, check the settings and program it according to the current weather.

Get New Air Filters
The air filters in your unit should be cleaned and replaced regularly. If you skipped this maintenance task, the fall is the ideal time to get back on track. Depending on certain factors within your home, experts recommend replacing your air filters every 30 to 90 days.

Cleaning the Condensation Drain Line
This part of your HVAC system helps to drain moisture away through PVC piping. Ensure the piping is always clear of clogging to prevent water overflow inside your property. If the condensation line is cleared, you will not need to worry about drip pan overflow.

Replace the Entire System
If you seek the above HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area but still experience problems, you should consider investing in a new system. During the season, the weather will become colder, and your unit will need to work harder to heat your home. Generally, this is a great time to replace your equipment. A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, can help with your HVAC repairs or replacements. Contact us today to schedule an appointment or speak with a specialist.

Client Testimonials

  • First experience was on New Year's Day, 2020, when furnace stopped. Called A-Plus and they had a rep (Jack) out quickly. He did some troubleshooting. He wasn't giving BS. Gave me options on repairing or replacing. Non-biased, no pressure. I chose replace and it was done the next day. Good experience all around. Second experience was early March, 2021 when a harsh chemical smell emanating from the furnace room, and pushed through the HVAC venting, permeated the house. Very concerning. Was late night, called A-Plus, immediately answered and suggested some safety moves for the evening. Booked a visit for the morning. Jack again came and assessed the issue and advised where the smell came from (outside). Again, very professional, quick, no BS, good guy. Completely satisfied with the service after often being given the BS treatment from other service providers for the house. Would definitely recommend.

FAQ

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • Most common Boiler Issues

    - Boiler fails to ignite
    - Low pressure
    - Strange Noises
    - Boiler is not responding to the thermostat
    - Cold Radiators
    - Boiler leaking or dripping
    - Boiler cycling very fast
    - Available Hot water but No Heat

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.
