Is Your Home Ready for Fall?

Stephen Jabro

How to Prepare Your Home for Winter

As the fun and sunshine of summer draws to a close, you may be thinking of how best to prepare your home for the chilled autumn weather. At Jon Wayne Heating & Air, we understand you want to protect your house from the elements, and heat your rooms effectively. To that end, we’ve got two ways you can best have your home ready for fall.

Clean Air Ducts

Clean Your Air Ducts to get your home ready for fall

Clean air ducts are important to your home’s air quality and your climate control equipment’s efficiency. Clean air ducts can also be a factor in your health. Left unchecked, pollen and other irritants can get into the air ducts and cycle through your house. If you have seasonal allergies or asthma, this can negatively affect your well-being.

Air Quality – When is it time to clean your air ducts quiz

Cleaning your ducts can save you a lot of trouble, especially if you anticipate a high pollen count this fall. Jon Wayne Heating & Air provides professional duct cleaning service to homes and businesses. Is it time for your home to get its air ducts cleaned? Take our Duct Cleaning AC Duct Cleaning Quiz to determine when is the right time for your system.


Also note that accumulated moisture in your ventilation system can result in mold. If your area experiences a wet autumn, duct cleaning can be particularly important.

To really make sure your home is ready for fall, yearly inspections are crucial when it comes to furnace maintenance. After an extended period of disuse, your climate control equipment can develop problems that aren’t immediately apparent. You don’t want to wait until you’re in the middle of a freeze for your heating to suddenly go out. To prevent performance issues, you should have your furnace checked for:

  • Obstructions in the condensate drain
  • Carbon monoxide leaks
  • Moving parts that need lubrication
  • Any problems with the system related to startup, shutdown or thermostats

The filter should also be changed regularly. Clean filters increase your system’s efficiency, which can mean lower energy costs. When you get your furnace checked early, you can resolve any problems before the cold season, saving you on cost and comfort.
