28 Aug Home Heating Efficiency Tips
It’s time to schedule your HVAC tune-up! Routine checkups are essential to keeping your energy bill affordable and your heating system long lasting.
HVAC Maintenance Tips:
- Change Your Air Filter – One of the easiest ways to keep your system running smoothly is by changing your air filter every month. When your air filter gets dirty, your system works harder. Changing your air filter is a great way to reduce your energy bill, lengthen the lifespan of your unit, and keep dust and pollen particles out of your home.
- Calibrate Your Thermostat – Your thermostat should get a routine tune-up. If your thermostat isn’t calibrated properly, your system won’t be running as efficiently and you could be spending more than you should on your energy bill.
- Check for Carbon Monoxide – Part of your seasonal tune-up should include checking your system for any signs of carbon monoxide. This dangerous and odorless gas is often not detected until it’s too late. Routine check-ups can help keep you and your family safe.
- Seal Your Home – Cold air can creep inside windows and doors that aren’t properly sealed. Check the base and edges of any doors and windows of your home for drafts.
