West Central Indiana winters can be brutal, so it’s important to ensure your HVAC system is ready to handle the cold weather. Here are a few tips for preparing your HVAC system for winter from the comfort pros at Edwards Royal Comfort!
Tips for Preparing your HVAC System for Winter
Replace your air filter
A dirty air filter can restrict airflow and make your system work harder, which can lead to higher energy bills and premature wear and tear on the system. Replace your air filter every 1-3 months or more often if you have pets or allergies. A clean air filter will help to improve air quality in your home and keep your system running smoothly.
Clean the outdoor condenser unit
If you have a heat pump system, be sure to clean the outdoor condenser unit in the fall. This will remove any leaves, dirt, or debris that may have accumulated over the summer. A dirty condenser unit can restrict airflow and make your system work harder, which can lead to higher energy bills and premature wear and tear on the system. You can clean the condenser unit with a hose and a soft brush.
Ensure proper airflow
Make sure your HVAC registers and vents are not blocked by furniture or other objects. This will allow air to flow freely throughout your home, helping to keep you comfortable and save you money on your energy bills. Blocked vents can also cause your system to overheat, which can lead to damage and costly repairs.

A qualified HVAC technician from Edwards Royal Comfort will clean and inspect your system, and make any necessary repairs or adjustments.
