How to Assess Your HVAC Needs at the End of Cooling Season

How to Assess Your HVAC Needs at the End of Cooling Season

Now is the time to assess your entire home’s HVAC unit to see if you need changes, upgrades, or better protection.

We’re now getting into the thick of the fall, which means that your home’s HVAC systems won’t be using their cooling function nearly as much now. Now is the time to assess your entire home’s HVAC unit to see if you need changes, upgrades, or better protection for the upcoming cold elements. With colder weather ahead, you won’t need to rely on your AC that much, and this is when you can make sure you’re in the clear for the next few months. Read on to learn how to assess your facility’s HVAC unit for potential upgrades!

Is Your HVAC Unit Ready to Be Replaced?

The big question for you to ask at the end of each summer, so you will be ready to have a new HVAC unit put in when it is convenient. If your current unit is less than ten years old, it probably is not ready for a replacement unless it’s encountered some severe repair issues or already broken. The ten or more year range is when to start giving some more serious thought for a replacement if the system shows signs that it can no longer keep up with any comfort demands or is too expensive to run.

Are There Any Rooms in Your Houses That Can’t Get Enough Cold Air?

If you have always had issues with individual rooms or areas in your house when it comes to cooling, you’ve got a few different options, and you don’t have to have a new HVAC unit installed to solve them. One alternative is to have a ductless mini-split installed to deal with the trouble spots. A ductless HVAC unit can provide powerful cooling without messing with the rest of your unit, an effortless modular update!

Is Your HVAC Unit Properly Protected?

Since your HVAC unit is located outdoors, it might be taking a beating from the weather and any other outside elements. If you are worried about rainstorms, snowstorms, or sleet damaging the exterior and even your unit’s interior, you need to protect it. One way to guard your HVAC unit is by installing louvers. Louvers, whether they’re industrial or custom-made, can shield your louvers in all directions from potential weather damage, as well as from outside thieves or threats. Aluminum louvers especially are weather resistant and last a very long time.
