Since we live in Florida, there is not an extreme change in weather when it comes to winter time, but summertime is the killer. During summer you do not want to deal with problems concerning a malfunctioning HVAC unit. The same thing is true for the wintertime.
To guarantee you are ready all year round and comfy should these difficult times arise, these top tips will increase your comfort heating and cooling.
Basic Heating and Cooling Comfort Tips For Your Home
Routine Maintenance. It’s better to be proactive when it comes to taking care of your heating and cooling unit. Routine maintenance will keep you ahead of any problems that may cause a breakdown with your system. It will also save you money.
Filter Maintenance. Dirty filters can block the cool or warm air that ensures the level of comfort inside your home. Filters help ensure good air quality and unit efficiency. Changing your filter once a month or according to your manufacturer’s recommendations is a must.
Regular filter maintenance will help lower your heating and cooling costs, make the system work efficiently and guarantee your comfort.
Seal Ducts. To keep your level of comfort in your home, you should also make sure the ducts are sealed that move air for your heat pump, air conditioner, and furnace. If not sealed or improperly sealed, you will lose more heat and air throughout your house.
Yearly Tune Up. To keep your heating and cooling system running properly be sure to schedule a yearly tune up. Professionals will have a checklist of things to look over to ensure you are in good shape for the upcoming seasonal weather.
Programmable Thermostat. Install a programmable thermostat. Energy efficiency should be at the forefront when using your heating and cooling units during peak times of the year. Being able to control your home’s temperature whether you are home or away can save you money.
Research has shown that using a programmable thermostat can save you about $180 every year in heat and air energy costs. That sounds like a good enough reason to install a programmable thermostat to me!
To keep your heating and cooling system running efficiently all year long, use these basic maintenance steps. They are simple, reliable and routine tips that will lower your energy costs and increase the life of your HVAC unit.
