Your HVAC system is the back-bone of comfort in your home. Without it, your family will be freezing out in the cold winters and burning up in the hot summers. It is therefore paramount that you keep it operating effectively and efficiently from season to season. How do you that successfully?
Here are steps to help you out:
- Inspect and replace your filters regularly
- Use a programmable thermostat
- Schedule professional maintenance at least once yearly
- Clean your air return vents
Dirty filters decrease air flow and cause your system to work harder than necessary in order to achieve the desired results. Inspect your filters once a month, especially during winter or summer when the HVAC system is mostly in use, and replace them if they appear dirty.
You do not need to keep an eye on your home temperatures all the time. A smart or programmable thermostat can do most of the work for you. It will help the HVAC to adjust itself and cool the air to the right temperature and at the right times of the day.
Your HVAC is a big investment. To receive optimal service as well as prolong its service life, you need to have a professional contractor check it out at least once a year. An expert will lubricate the system, identify any looping problems and make adjustments to improve the efficiency of the system.
Air return vents often build up with dirt, dust and other forms of debris. Clean these vents periodically to prevent this dirt build up from bogging down your system and lowering its efficiency.
