We all know that Fall Season is a Busy Season in The DMV.
As summer ends and kids head back to school, schedules get filled with practice and activities, the roads seem to be filled with more traffic and, of course, the weather is getting colder.
With so much going on it can be easy to forget about the important things you have to do to prepare your home for the oncoming cold weather.
The good news, is that Vito Services has been preparing homes in Rockville MD for Fall Season for almost 90 years. So, when your Fall Schedule gets busy, don’t worry, Leave it to Vito for all your Fall Maintenance planning!
Getting your home’s heating system ready for Fall Season is extremely important in order to prevent potential issues as the weather gets colder. The last thing anyone wants is NO HEAT in the middle of the winter!
Vito Services HVAC Service Manager Nolan Smith, with over 30 years experience in the HVAC Industry, including the past 4 years as HVAC Service Manager at Vito Services, shares his Top-5 HEATING Tips to Prepare for Fall.
While we can’t predict the future, we all know that IF there was a problem with our heating system, we’d rather find out about it now than, say on a cold winter night, right? Having your HVAC (which stands for Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning) heating system checked in the fall can potentially save you from major issues once the cold season starts.
Nolan’s HVAC Maintenance Tips:
Dirty or clogged air filters can restrict airflow, reducing the efficiency of even the highest SER-Rated heating systems. Dirty filters also accumulate dust and dirt that gets circulated throughout your home.
Nolan’s HVAC Air Filter Tips:
As the weather gets cooler, it’s important to adjust your thermostat accordingly. Ideally, for best energy efficiency, lower your thermostat a few degrees during the day when you’re not at home or at night when you’re sleeping.
A Smart Thermostat (i.e., Programmable Thermostat) can help you automate temperature changes throughout the day during the fall season, which will save you energy and money on heating costs.

One good thing about cold weather is it’s not hard to find, especially if you have drafts around openings in your home.
As your family moves indoors during the cold months and the gas appliances get used more and more, it’s extremely important to make sure you have a working and operable Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detector.
