HVAC winter

Is your home HVAC system not keeping you comfortable this winter like it once did? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

When HVAC systems stop functioning like they once did, there’s a reason why. Thankfully, you can get your Frederick County HVAC back on the right track so that it starts keeping your home comfortable this winter, simply by following these tips.

Tip #1 – Change The HVAC Filter

HVAC filters should be changed every 30 days, especially during the winter months since they can accumulate dust, dirt and debris quickly.

If it’s been a while since you changed your filter, the good news is that filters are affordable! You can find quality HVAC filters at your local Walmart for only $8 for four filters.

Tip #2 – Test Your Thermostat

Another important thing to do if your home is not staying comfortable like it once did is to check your homes thermostat.

Simply adjust the temperature in your home to a few degrees higher than you normally have it set. If your doesn’t start, this is a sign that the thermostat may need to be replaced.

Instead of replacing your thermostat with a traditional model, you should consider investing in a smart thermostat. Doing this will give you the flexibility of being able to turn your heat on from any location and make it possible for you to come home to a warm home.

Tip #3 – Test The Igniter Switch And Blower Motor

Let’s say that you tested your thermostat and replaced the air filter but your HVAC is still not keeping your home warm. If this is the case, you should consider testing the igniter switch and blower motor.

Be sure to follow your HVAC unit owner’s manual when conducting these tests or call Dave’s because we can test all of your HVAC components to make sure that they are functioning normally.

Besides the suggestions in this article, you may also want to have the heat exchanger serviced as well.
