As the temperatures begin to finally cool down and give your A/C a break, it’s time to prepare your heating system for the fall season. At TemperaturePro, we prioritize convenience, transparency, and professionalism in all our HVAC services. 

With valuable energy-saving tips to ensure optimal HVAC performance during autumn, you can not only enhance comfort but also reduce your energy consumption and save on utility bills.

Tips For Your HVAC System in the Fall

Adjust Your Thermostat Settings. As the weather cools down, lower your thermostat by a few degrees during the day when you’re away from home or at night when you’re sleeping. Consider investing in a programmable or smart thermostat (that your Local TemperaturePro can provide) to automate temperature adjustments and maximize energy savings.

Take Advantage of Natural Heating. During sunny fall days, take advantage of natural heating by opening curtains and blinds to allow sunlight into your home. Sunlight can naturally warm up your space, reducing the reliance on your HVAC system. Remember to close them at night to retain the heat and prevent heat loss.

Seal Air Leaks and Insulate. Check for gaps and cracks around windows, doors, and electrical outlets, and seal them with weatherstripping or caulk. Consider adding insulation to your attic, walls, and crawlspaces to minimize heat transfer and maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. We recommend letting a TemperaturePro technician come out and inspect/seal your ductwork. 

Schedule HVAC Maintenance. Regular HVAC maintenance is crucial for optimal performance and energy efficiency. Schedule a professional maintenance service with TemperaturePro before the fall season to ensure that your system is clean, well-tuned, and operating at peak efficiency. This includes cleaning or replacing filters, inspecting ductwork, and checking the system for any potential issues. Your TemperaturePro techs will ensure your furnace, boiler or any heating system you use is operating properly to take on the cooler weather. 

Use Ceiling Fans Wisely. Ceiling fans can be a great energy-saving tool in the fall. Switch the direction of your ceiling fan blades to clockwise, which creates an upward airflow that pushes warm air down from the ceiling. This helps distribute heat more evenly and reduces the workload on your heating system.
