Your home’s furnace, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) system works hard to keep your house at the correct temperature year-round. Therefore, furnace and cooling bills can be high. Check out these three ways to keep your HVAC running smoothly and reduce costs:
Plan Regular Maintenance
Get your HVAC system repaired and cleaned at least twice a year. Schedule repairs in the fall for the furnace section and in the spring for the cooling one. Regular cleaning and repair will help remove debris build-up in addition to fixing any problems that may become worse if left unchecked. Ensure that you hire a professional to perform the repairs to avoid damaging your system even further.
Filters clean the air that enters and circulates within your HVAC system. Filters help keep out debris in the form of dust, insects, pollen, and other atmospheric pollutants. Depending on your home situation, you will need to change the filters anywhere between 20 days and 12 months. Homes with pets and children will need more frequent changes due to the amount of fur and dirt they carry around.
Upgrade Your Thermostat
As your HVAC ages, your thermostat is among the components that will be most affected. A faulty or broken thermostat cannot correctly turn your system on and off. You will no longer be able to regulate the temperatures in your home, which means that it may become too hot or too cold. Replace or upgrade your thermostat as soon as you start seeing signs of disrepair.
Even well-maintained furnace and cooling systems demand attention now and then. Whether you are dealing with a furnace that’s not operating on its normal cycles or an air conditioner, furnace, split system, or furnace pump that just stopped working, our trained technicians will thoroughly assess the problem and do everything possible to restore your comfort.
