5 top tips to protect your HVAC system through winter

Like it or not, winter really isn’t that far off, and if you haven’t yet thought about protecting your HVAC systems through the cold months then now’s the time to start. What better way to get things moving than reading these five handy tips?

5. Change your air filters

Get into the habit of changing your air filters when required by monitoring pressure drop across the filter bank. This will keep your HVAC system as energy efficient as possible.

4. Check your air handling units (AHUs) are adequately protected from the cold weather 

Use additives to prevent coils freezing and bursting or install frost coils to protect filters.

3. Consider using auto-control signals 

This allows you to programme preset temperatures and pressures for different times of the day so that your HVAC system works more efficiently when you're away.

2. Keep all vents and grills clear 

Be certain your air circulates properly by ensuring nothing is blocking your vents and grills. Any obstructions, particularly leaves, make HVAC systems work much harder than they need to.
