When a snowstorm rolls through, your city is subject to freezing temperatures, which can put a strain on an unprepared HVAC unit. You should maintain the system well to protect it on the coldest days.
Your air filter needs to be changed on a regular basis to keep the HVAC system operating smoothly. Clogged air filters increase breakdowns and reduce the lifespan of your system. The manufacturer’s manual will let you know how often to change the filter. If you change it before a snowstorm, you’ll have peace of mind that your system is ready to go.
Heating systems need maintenance at least once a year to stay in tip-top condition. If a snowstorm is coming through and your system hasn’t had its recommended maintenance yet, it’s at greater risk of breaking down. Moyer’s Heating & Cooling Inc. provides maintenance for furnaces and heat pumps in Prescott Valley, AZ. We have NATE-certified technicians who are trained to catch early signs of problems with your heating system.
In order to get the most out of a high-efficiency heating system, your home should have adequate insulation, or else the warm air quickly escapes. Whether or not your heater is high efficiency, you’ll want to make sure your home’s insulation is good. This will help prevent the system from overworking during a snowstorm to keep you warm.
Open vents help protect your heating system. If too many vents are closed, it can cause problems with the heater. You also want all of the vents open and unobstructed to make sure that as much of the warm air as possible circulates through your home during the snowstorm. There shouldn’t be clothing, furniture, or other items too close to the vents.
