    September 23rd is the first day of fall...well, not exactly.


    You'll be hearing everywhere that Monday, September 23rd is the first day of fall. While that's the day decided upon because of the Fall equinox...our area's first day of fall, technically, won't arrive until Friday, September 27th.

    How can that be?

    The definition of the word equinox is 'when day and night are of equal length'. Those times can vary greatly depending on where you're located on the globe. In West Tennessee (and most of the middle swath of America, East to West), we'll have 12 hours & 9 minutes between sunrise & sunset on Monday, September 23rd. Friday, September 27th is when it's exactly 12 hours. To get an idea of how it differs nationwide: Seattle, Washington's will technically be Thursday, and Key West, Florida's will be Saturday. You can check sunrise/sunset timetables here: Sunrise/Sunsets.

    Regardless, fall is arriving and it's time for your fall HVAC inspection! Call AIR MD, your HVAC professionals, to have a maintenance inspection performed on your system. This can help prevent emergency situations, detect any problems before they develop into costly breakdowns, and be sure your HVAC system is working efficiently and optimally all fall and winter.

    It’s a good idea to have this inspection performed seasonally, but it should definitely be scheduled every six months at a minimum. AIR MD, your HVAC professionals will check the following to prepare for fall:

    • Air duct inspection (cleaning is available)

    • Check for leaks within ducts and seal them as necessary (prevent hot air from escaping from your duct work)

    • Measure airflow of the HVAC unit.

    • Ensure the electric control sequence is correct

    • Check electric terminals and make sure all connections are clean, tight, and functioning properly

    • Check belts for wear, alignment, and proper tension.

    • Verify your system thermostat's accuracy

    Call us at AIRMD today for schedule your fall maintenance check. Don't wait....much colder weather will be here before you know it, and you'd rather check it now, than deal with a broken down unit later. Call us at (731) 784-7106.
