Our Cooling Maintenance Services:
- Cleaning condenser air conditioning coils: Dirty coils reduce your system's ability to cool your home and cause it to run longer than necessary, increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.
- Check your central air conditioner's refrigerant level and adjust if necessary: Too much or too little refrigerant will make your system less efficient, increasing energy costs and reducing the lifespan of the equipment.
- Clean and adjust blower components to provide proper system airflow for greater comfort levels: Airflow problems can reduce your system's efficiency by up to 15%, meaning higher overall energy bills for you.
Our Heating Maintenance Options:
- Check all gas (or oil) connections, gas pressure, burner combustion and heat exchanger: Improperly operating gas (or oil) connections are a fire hazard and can contribute to health problems. A dirty burner or cracked heat exchanger causes improper burner operation. Either can cause the equipment to operate less safely and efficiently.
All Maintenance Options:
- Check thermostat settings: Correct thermostat settings allow your cooling and heating system to keep you comfortable when you are home and saves energy while you are away.
- Tighten all electrical connections and measure voltage and current on motors: Tightening components ensures faulty electrical connections do not cause unsafe operation of your system and reduce the life of major components.
- Lubricate all moving parts: Parts that lack lubrication cause friction in motors and increases the amount of electricity you use.
- Check and inspect the condensate drain in your central air conditioner, furnace and/or heat pump (when in cooling mode): A plugged drain can cause water damage in the house and affect indoor humidity levels.
- Check controls of the system to ensure proper and safe operation: Checking the starting cycle of the equipment will make sure the system starts, operates, and shuts off properly.

Fall Maintenance Steps You Should Take
As we’ve already discussed, fall HVAC maintenance is important, and a significant way to prepare your home to keep you comfortable all winter. However, important doesn't have to mean difficult. In fact, there are many simple steps you can take on your own to prepare your home heating and cooling system for the fall and winter.
We recommend that anyone with a home does the following fall HVAC maintenance:
- Adjust your programmable or smart thermostat: Set your programmable thermostat to a comfortable temperature when you are home, and set it a few degrees higher (or lower, depending on whether you are heating or cooling) during the times you are out of the house; it will save significant energy and money over time. If you don't have a programmable thermostat, this is a good time to replace it with a new smart thermostat which can make an even bigger impact.
- Clean or replace air filters: Keeping a clean air filter in your home HVAC system is an effortless but impactful maintenance tip to improve the air quality in your home and keep your HVAC system performing at its peak. Filters should be replaced monthly (every three months at the least) if your system uses disposable filters, and should be washed as often if your system contains a reusable one. If you have been neglecting monthly filter replacements, your fall HVAC maintenance routine is the perfect time to get back on track.
- Clean air vents: Check all the vents throughout your house. Ensure that nothing is blocking the flow of air to or from these vents, such as furniture or clutter. Use this opportunity to dust the vents as well, as this will minimize the amount of dust and other irritants that will circulate throughout your home.
- Seal leaks: Use fall HVAC maintenance as an opportunity to winterize your home with simple things like sealing air leaks. Seal windows and doors with caulk or weather stripping, and replace broken windows. If you find a leak in your air ducts, it can be remedied with aluminum foil tape. For major ductwork problems, call a professional.
- Clean the area around outdoor units: For many homes, part of the HVAC system is housed outdoors. This usually includes the AC condenser unit, and in some cases the heat pump. To promote maximum efficiency and to prevent fires and other hazards, keep the area clean and clear. As we get into the autumn season, plant growth that took place over the summer dies or goes dormant. Trim back grass and other growth and remove dead leaves and branches.
Schedule HVAC Maintenance For Your Home
The simple fall maintenance steps mentioned above can make a big difference in your home heating system's effectiveness and efficiency. They also work best when supplemented by professional HVAC maintenance. If you encounter issues while conducting your own fall HVAC maintenance routine, you should contact a professional and schedule repairs that can be completed before temperatures drop. You may also want to take this time to consider upgrading your equipment. Outdated products and units need to be replaced, and you can take advantage of local incentives offered for replacing heat pumps, furnaces, air conditioning units, and thermostats with new, more efficient models. By conducting your regular fall HVAC maintenance at the beginning of every fall season, you have plenty of time to consult with a professional on the best product for your home and to schedule installation before winter begins. And at Weis Comfort Systems, we offer various specials and financing options to make new equipment installation as affordable as possible.
