Tips for Taking Care of Your HVAC System

This year, make a resolution to take care of your HVAC system to ensure you're getting the most from your heating and air conditioning all year long. Follow these 5 tips to enjoy better comfort throughout the year, lower your energy bills and extend the life of your HVAC system!

1. Replace Your Air Filters

The best thing you can do for your HVAC system is to regularly replace your air filters. If neglected, the filter will fill with dirt and dust, making your heater work that much harder. For optimal heating and cooling, all year set a schedule to inspect and replace your air filters every three months.

2. Get a Programmable Thermostat

When it comes to taking care of your HVAC system, a programmable thermostat is an awesome piece of technology. By picking settings several hours apart you can ensure you're getting the most from your heating or cooling without using an astronomical amount of energy. No matter how tempting it is, never crank your system all the way up when you're feeling a bit chilly or warm. This can waste energy and your home will heat up no faster than if you just adjust it a few degrees.

3. Schedule Your Annual Inspection

Scheduling a yearly inspection for your air conditioner and furnace is an important part of your HVAC care. Professional maintenance helps keep your system running perfectly. Waiting until you have a problem scheduling service can cost you much more in the long run!

4. Don't Ignore HVAC Problems

The health of your HVAC system is a bit like a human body. The more you ignore a problem, the worse it can get. When you notice disturbing noises or lousy output coming from your furnace, request service as soon as possible. Prompt service might make the difference between equipment that can be fixed and an expensive replacement.

5. Replace Outdated Equipment

No appliance is meant to last forever. If you are relying on an old, outdated unit, you’ve got plenty of reasons to consider replacing it. New equipment usually means better efficiency and greater comfort without a higher energy bill. You might have no idea what you’re missing by not investing in new equipment.
