That means right now is a great time to get your commercial, business, or industrial heating system near St Louis City ready for the change in temperatures. Now that may sound silly because this is the time of the year that most people begin to think about their cooling system, but we need to remember that preparing your heating unit now will save you from trouble next fall! Let’s address this topic with three simple steps.
- First, take a look at your outdoor heat pump unit. This doesn’t apply to all units, but if your do rely on a heat pump, you will need to get it ready for cooling. Consulting a professional about the proper adjusting of the reverse valve will be needed and is always recommended. You should also take a look at your outdoor compressor/condenser at this time. Make sure to clear any debris build-up to allow the unit to properly function.
- Next, consider replacing your air filter. This is a must for those who utilize a forced air distribution system because the air filter is what keeps pollutants and other contaminants out of your ductwork. Many skip this step because they already regularly change their filter, but it’s a good idea to double check in preparation for next season.
