January 9, 2024

It may not feel like it yet, but winter is right around the corner. The days are already getting shorter, and soon you will be swapping your shorts and sandals for Christmas sweaters. You should prepare for winter weather and get your heater running before it’s too late. We have some tips on how to prepare your Bucks County HVAC system for fall and winter.

Change Your Air Filters

Changing your air filters is the quickest and easiest thing you can do. You should be changing your air filters every month already, but if you aren’t in the habit of changing them yet, you should definitely put new ones in before the winter. You want to make sure the systems are able to run properly without dust building up. While you are changing the air filters, go ahead and vacuum out the vents to get any dust and dirt out. This will help warm air from your heater to flow more freely to keep you warm in the winter.

Test Your Thermostat

Want to make sure your HVAC system in Bucks County is working before you really need it? The easiest way is just to test it. If the heat isn’t running properly or takes too long to start running, you may have a problem. It’s better to get it taken care of before the really cold weather comes.

Get Your HVAC System Fixed or Replaced

If your HVAC system started having problems last winter or if it’s really old, you should get it fixed or replaced soon. If you are worried about the cost, having a new HVAC system can greatly reduce your energy bill because it doesn’t have to work as hard as one that is broken. It’s an investment that can save you a lot on your bills in the long run, especially if we are going to have an extra cold winter.

If your Bucks County HVAC system needs some repairs or if you just need a new one, Chud Air Conditioning & Heating can help.

  • “I had a great experience with Chud. Lewis and Sebastian did a fantastic job. They were communicative and on time, explained everything that they would be doing to clean my HVAC ductwork, answered all of my questions, were honest about not being able to properly clean my dryer vent, and cleaned up after they were done. They also went above and beyond, even cleaning dust from each slat of the return vent. Highly recommend.”

  • “We rely on Chud Duct Cleaning to perform our regular duct cleaning in our home. Your service technicians Lewis and Sebastian arrived promptly, introduced themselves and got right to work. Our home has many vents behind and under furniture, which was moved and replaced as if nothing ever happened. My home was carefully prepared and respected throughout the entire process. An access panel was replaced for a more pleasant look and better access in the future. I will not hesitate to use this company for service again.”
