The winter months are upon us and for many of us those months can be pretty brutal. Routine maintenance and preventive action can help the longevity of your a/c unit during the winter months.

Before the cold winters brace hits, test your furnace.  Ideally you would like to choose a day where you can open all windows and doors.  After a furnace sits for a while, once turned back on it can release a certain odor.  Most furnaces come with a warranty.  You want to make sure during the warranty you are having your furnace checked.

Make sure your thermostat is working properly.  If you have a programmed thermostat in your home be sure to check all settings.

Most people ask about covering your outside unit. You do not have to cover your outside unit.  A/C units are built to with stand harsh weather.  Majority times, the cover creates a home for critters that can cause harm to the a/c unit wires if chewed.

Always replace any old filters.  Be sure to inspect the area in which the filter is placed.  Notify a technician if you see any mold or detached wires.
