Winter is coming. Is your HVAC system ready? The cold we brave in the Red River Valley every year puts your HVAC unit to the test. Here are three things you can do today to help make sure your system is ready to take on the winter chill.

Dirty air filter. Clean air filter.

1. Clean or Replace Air Filters

Clearing dust and debris from your air filters is essential to the health of your building occupants and the HVAC system itself. When your air filters are clean, then the air you’re breathing is also cleaner.

But did you know that your HVAC system can also breathe easier with clean air filters? Clean filters allow for optimal air flow through your system, allowing your system to operate at maximum efficiency. This helps to keep operating costs down and increases the overall life of your system.

First, you have a chance to fix any existing issues to help you avoid a system failure, which can be expensive to repair. Second, these preventative appointments provide a chance for your technician to identify any potential issues or system age limitations that could be problematic in the future, and review your options for updates or replacements.
