As winter approaches in Perth, ensuring your home remains warm and comfortable is crucial. At Everest HVAC & R, we specialise in providing top tier heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) services to keep your home at the perfect temperature during the colder months. Preparing your air conditioning unit for winter is essential for efficient heating. Here are practical steps to ensure your air conditioning unit heats your home efficiently throughout the winter.

1. Professional HVAC Inspection & Maintenance

The first step in preparing your air conditioning unit for winter is to schedule a professional HVAC inspection. Our team of certified technicians at Everest HVAC & R will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your system to ensure it’s in optimal condition. This includes checking for any issues that could hinder performance, such as refrigerant leaks, faulty wiring, or worn-out components.

2. Filter Replacement & Cleaning

A clean filter is essential for maintaining air quality and ensuring your HVAC system runs efficiently. We recommend replacing or cleaning the air filters every 30 to 90 days, depending on usage and type. A clogged filter can restrict airflow, forcing your system to work harder and use more energy to heat your home.

3. Ductwork Inspection & Sealing

Leaky ducts can significantly reduce your heating system’s efficiency by allowing warm air to escape before reaching its intended destination. Our team will inspect your ductwork for any leaks or damage and provide professional sealing services. This process ensures that heat is distributed evenly and efficiently throughout your home.

4. Thermostat Calibration & Upgrade

A properly calibrated thermostat ensures that your HVAC system heats your home to your desired temperature without unnecessary energy use. If your thermostat is outdated, consider upgrading to a programmable model. Programmable thermostats allow you to set your heating preferences for different times of the day, ensuring comfort while optimising energy use.

5. System Upgrades & Replacement

For homes with older HVAC systems, upgrading to a newer, more energy-efficient model can provide significant improvements in comfort and cost savings. Our experts at Everest HVAC & R can assess your current system and recommend options that will best meet your heating needs while maximising energy efficiency.
