How to Get Your HVAC System Ready for Winter

Now that winter is just around the corner, it is time to start thinking about your home’s systems such as thermostats, furnaces, and ductwork. These are easy to overlook, but doing so is incredibly important in order to ensure that your home is ready for freezing temps to keep you nice and warm all winter long.

#1: Schedule a preventative maintenance appointment.

Having annual preventative maintenance performed is very important — not only can it help to prolong the life of your heating system, but it also keeps everything running efficiently. This will also help prevent your furnace system from breaking down and provide you with an overall more reliable system. During your appointment with Champion Services, our HVAC technicians will make sure to thoroughly clean your filters, take a close look at all of the internal workings of your heating system, and discuss with you any issues if we find any. We will also make sure that everything is fixed up and ready to go so you can rest assured that you will have a reliable system all winter long.

#2: Have your ductwork thoroughly cleaned.

The indoor air quality of your home is very important, especially as we head into the winter months when illnesses and viruses tend to be at their peak. Our team of HVAC professionals can assist you with cleaning the ductwork of your home in order to provide you and your family with cleaner air to breathe all year long!

#3: Consider a smart thermostat if you don’t already have one.

Smart thermostats are key to energy savings during the cold winter months. Many models such as the Nest connect directly to your WiFi and can be adjusted using an app, allowing you to track and control your home’s temperature even when you are away. If you are looking to achieve the most energy savings, simply adjust your thermostat to ~68 degrees Fahrenheit while you are home and then lower the temperature 10-12 degrees during the evening when you sleep and have a comforter to keep you warm. Most smart thermostats allow you to set this yourself so that you don’t even need to think twice about it.

There you have it! By making one simple phone call to your local, trusted HVAC company like the team at Champion Services in Ogden, you can rest assured that your heat will be reliable all winter long as you breathe in clean, healthy air.
