Get Ready to Cool Down!

November 6th, 2017

 

Typically the weather in Tucson stays pretty warm until Halloween. After that the cool weather tends to sneak up. Before the weather changes, make sure your heating system can handle the cooler months. Use the following tips to prepare your system for the winter.

Test Your Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Detectors

Your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors protect those in your home from dangerous gasses and life-threatening situations. You need be sure that they work. Maintaining these devices is simple all you have to do is change a battery. This may be one of the simplest things to do, but it is also one of the most important.

Schedule a Heating Maintenance Visit

To ensure that your home heating system is ready for the cooler months, have an HVAC technician come to your home and inspect your setup. Russett Southwest Corp. not only provides standard heating checkups, but also home energy audits to find energy inefficiencies in your home. By proactively finding and addressing these small issues, you can keep your system running efficiently and keep your energy bills down.

Check Your Windows

Be sure to check the sealing around your windows. There is nothing worse than a drafty window in the cold because it impacts your comfort and costs you money? If warm air is allowed to escape outside of your home, then your heating system will need to work harder to maintain a consistent temperature. Check your windows to make sure that your home is warm and your utility bill is low.

Change Your Air Filters

Changing your air filters is very important to keep your HVAC system running efficiently and your indoor air pure and clean. It is recommended that you change your air filters once every 3-4 months, and also that you are using the correct type of air filter for your home. If you need help in choosing the right air filter for your HVAC system, have a technician from Russett Southwest Corp. help you during their next service visit.
