A home’s HVAC system is often the unsung hero that keeps households comfortable and running smoothly. However, the heating and cooling systems upon which we rely throughout the seasons require periodic TLC to remain efficient and effective. As the weather cools, we at Above and Beyond Heating & Cooling recommend households in the Edmond area actively prepare their thermostats for the winter months before temperatures begin to drop.

Schedule an Inspection

Homeowners should ideally have their furnace inspected by a licensed technician during fall. After an inspection, one of our HVAC technicians will be able to make practical recommendations to help your household maintain a comfortable temperature indoors and even save money when the colder months arrive.

Change the Air Filter and Clean the Vents

Checking and changing the air filter is one of the easiest and quickest maintenance tasks an HVAC system requires. The filter should be changed periodically throughout the year, averaging every three to four months. When changing the filter, it is also advisable to vacuum the vents to ensure that warm air can flow freely.

Insulate the Attic

A drafty attic can easily sabotage a home’s HVAC system during winter months. One of our technicians can ensure your attic is sufficiently insulated. This will prevent warm air from escaping and costing you additional dollars to maintain a warm, comfortable temperature on the interior.

Have a Programmable Thermostat Installed

Keeping the air inside the home at the right temperature at all times can easily add up to energy cost savings. People tend to adjust their thermostat upward when they are at home and downward to a lower temperature when the home is unoccupied during the day. Installing a programmable thermostat can make it easier for you to maintain optimal temperature throughout the day and overnight.

A trustworthy technician can be a valuable ally in maintaining a safe, effective, and efficient heating system during the winter months. Whether you need a routine inspection, attic insulation, thermostat replacement, equipment upgrade, or repair, we can do it all. Call us today to learn more about our heating and cooling services.
