Fall HVAC Maintenance Checklist for Minnesota Residents

Fall has arrived and there are plenty of things you need to do to prepare. You need to take the kids back to school shopping, you have to fish out your warmer outer layers out of the back of the closet, and you need to get your home prepared to heat. While we can’t help you with absolutely everything, we can help you with everything that pertains to HVAC services. Let’s start with your heater.

We specialize in services like furnace repairs in Minneapolis, MN. We’re also available for work surrounding furnace maintenance. We want to help you get the services you need to make you as warm as possible throughout the year.

Your Maintenance Checklist

There are many things you need to do to maintain your heater. Here are a few of them:

Change Your Filter: Make sure that you’re cleaning or replacing your filter once every three months. We suggest this change rate because it typically aligns with a new filter once every season. This is going to make your home’s heater operate with ease.

Protect Your System: It’s important to ensure that your system is fully protected and ready to function. Make sure that your heater’s outdoor unit is free of debris and ready to function in its fullest capacity. 

Check In with Your Ductwork: You’re not going to get quality heating without sound ductwork. This is the time of year where you should check in with your ductwork to make sure that nothing weird is going on. Gaps or full ducts are going to hurt the quality of your home. 

Acknowledge When You Need More: Sometimes what you need is just repair work. Make sure that you get quality service from our team of professionals if this is something that you need. 

Schedule Your Maintenance Appointment: It’s a great idea to schedule an appointment for your maintenance services in the fall. Fall is the perfect time to get the maintenance service started. This is because you’re preparing your home for what’s to come and preparation makes all the difference. 

The Benefits of Professional Maintenance

Let’s pause, take a moment, and discuss the benefits of professional maintenance. As we’ve detailed above, maintenance is one of the most important things you can do to prepare your heater for the cold weather season. It’s something that needs to be done by a professional, though. Maintenance is only worthwhile if you’re having the proper professionals perform it. We’re the ones who can do this for you. Here are a few things we do for you during one of our maintenance services.

  • Clean the burners
  • Clean and replace sensors as needed
  • Clean out the condensate line
  • Check the limit and safety switches
  • Check the air filter (new filter not included)
  • Check the humidifier (new humidifier pad not included)
  • Clean the blower motor
  • Check the heat exchanger for damage
  • Clean the condenser
  • Clean and oil the condensate fan
  • Check refrigerant pressure (new refrigerant not included)

We do a wide variety of things because we’re responsible professionals. We want to get you the best service possible and we make sure to do it.
