Getting Your Heater Ready for Fall

Fall is officially upon us, and for Southern California, that means we will soon require our heaters until we leave the cold weather behind in the spring. Before we get any further along into fall, it’s time to get your heater ready for the cold weather that’s right around the corner.

Thankfully, AAA Calvert offers the best heating installation, repair, and maintenance in Long Beach. Here are a few ways to prep your heater to check to see if you need an upgrade.

Remove Debris

If your unit has not been used recently, you’ll want to check to ensure there is no debris accumulation on or around your unit. Leaves and such can gather, reducing the overall efficiency of your unit.

Clean the Filters

Remove the filters from the unit to properly clean them. You’ll want to remove any sort of dust or buildup that has accumulated. Use a vacuum, or wash the filter out in the sink or using a hose. Don’t forget you’ll want to swap out your filters every three months or so.

Check for Air Leaks

Check around the home for potential air leaks. Even the most minor leak can cause significant inefficiencies in your home’s heating unit during the colder months of the year. Typical suspects for leaks include window frames and doors around your home. Check for leaks in these areas and seal them, if possible.

Test the Unit

Last, you’ll want to test out your unit. Try not to wait until you need it to find out it isn’t working correctly. Make sure your home is heating properly and, if not, call our HVAC professionals right away to assess your concerns. It might be time to upgrade your heating unit before the cold of winter comes.
