Replace Your Air Filter

Your air filter plays an important role in providing your building with clean, healthy air. Over time, dust and debris will gather on your air filter and prevent it from functioning properly. It’s good practice to clean your air filter regularly to ensure optimal performance, and industry standards recommend replacing your filter on at least a quarterly basis. However, replacing your air filter monthly will ensure that you are always breathing clean air inside your building.

Is Your Thermostat Ready for Winter?

Without a properly functioning thermostat, your HVAC system can run into a lot of issues over the winter. If you work in an older property and you haven’t had your thermostat replaced before — especially if your building uses a mercury thermostat — you should consider upgrading to a newer model. Digital thermostats are especially efficient as they allow you to program your HVAC system to maintain constant, comfortable temperatures throughout the day.

Clean Your Air Ducts

Similar to your air filters, your air ducts constantly accumulate dust, allergens, and unfortunately, mold. These substances can interfere with the proper functioning of your HVAC system and pump unhealthy air into your building. In addition, dirty or clogged air ducts force your system to work harder than necessary to do its job, which increases your energy bills. The fall is a particularly good time to schedule an air duct inspection and cleaning with a trusted, local HVAC provider.

Proper Insulation Is Key

Most people know that the insulation in their walls is critical to maintaining a warm and comfortable workspace during the winter months. This is equally true for the insulation around your air ducts. Your air ducts need to be thoroughly insulated to carry warm air to every room in your building. Insufficient insulation on your ductwork can lead to heat loss, higher energy bills, and unnecessary repairs.
