When you own your home, you should want to make sure your cooling and heating system is in the best condition all year round. By reducing the wear and tear on your HVAC system and minimizing breakdowns through the seasons, you’ll keep your system running as efficiently as possible.
-Check your filter
I can’t say this enough, change your air filter. A clogged, restricted filter causes unnecessary strain on your HVAC system. Air cannot flow through your system with ease when there is excess debris on your filter.
-Keep up with repairs
When you have an HVAC technician at your residence and they recommend additional services, you should take heed and approve of the added services. An honest heating and cooling technician will explain why the services are needed and take care of it for you to increase the efficiency and lifespan of your system.
-Install a smart thermostat
Installing a new thermostat to control your HVAC system will optimize its performance. When you’re not home all day or away for the weekend, there’s really no need to keep your home cooled or heated as much as when you’re there. This will not only cause your heating and cooling system to work more than it needs to, it but will also add to your energy bills unnecessarily.
-Improve your insulation
When your home is drafty, you’re losing the heating and cooling that your system is supplying. A well-insulated home will help maintain the desired comfort you are trying to reach in your home without your HVAC system having to work overtime, especially during extreme high and low temperatures.
Keeping the wear and tear on your heating and cooling system to a minimum will keep it running as efficiently as possible, increase its lifespan, keep your energy costs low, and maintain comfort in your home year-round.
