Each season comes with its own home maintenance tasks, and fall is no exception. Though the Panacea, Florida, area doesn’t experience the same chill you might find in other parts of the country, the autumn months still bring a distinct set of challenges. Make sure you’re on top of these important seasonal jobs so you can stay healthy and comfortable.

Schedule a Heating Tuneup

You should schedule a maintenance visit for your furnace once a year. The best time to have your heating system tuned up is just before fall sets in. During this visit, our technicians will carefully inspect your unit, testing the burners, ignition system, and amp drive for optimum performance. During your tuneup, we also perform a gas input analysis, tighten electrical connections, lubricate moving parts, and regulate the combustion so you get the best performance possible from your unit.

Check Your Air Quality

Fall brings with it a host of irritants, from ragweed pollen to fallen leaves. To stay healthy, make sure your home’s air isn’t brimming with irritants. We offer indoor air quality testing that will clue you in to any hazards in your home. We can detect bacteria, mold, fungi, and even volatile organic compounds (VOC)s. If you do have a problem with your indoor air quality, we’ll help you choose the right products and services to get it under control.

Adjust Your Thermostat

If you have a programmable thermostat, now is the time to adjust your settings for the chilly season ahead. Turn the set points back to keep your home slightly cooler when you’re using your heating system. Keep your home especially cool while you’re away during the day and asleep at night. Switch to heavier bedding or warmer pajamas to compensate.

Proper fall maintenance will help you stay comfortable throughout the heating season. If you’re behind on your heating tuneups, give Advanced Air Care a call at 850-688-9265 to schedule a visit. We’ll make sure you’re prepared for fall.
