It’s August, which means your HVAC system has been working hard in the Denver heat to keep your house cool. It’s almost time for the kids to go back to school and for temperatures to start dropping as fall approaches. This is the perfect time to do some HVAC maintenance to keep your system operating at peak performance.

The following maintenance tips will give your system a boost and prep it for the changing temperatures.


Air filters should be changed once a month during the hot summer and cold winter. During the rest of the year, they should be replaced once every three months. Whether or not you remembered to do this throughout the summer, now is the perfect time to change your air filters.

Check your outdoor unit for any weeds or debris clogging it. Having these around your unit also attracts pests that can get into your system and cause trouble.

Lingering Heat

August is still a hot month, so keep up your energy conservation strategies. Use ceiling and box fans to reduce the need for the air conditioner. Close your blinds during the day to keep out excess heat. If no one is home during the day, set the thermostat a couple of degrees higher. This will result in lower utility bills and also save wear and tear on your system.
