If your HVAC system isn’t running smoothly you’ll end up spending a lot more money than you have to for these bills. You probably already know that the most pricey part of your utilities at home is your heating and cooling system. Here in Central Florida, you can make sure that your HVAC system is efficient as possible and meanwhile save money.
Clean Out Your Ducts. Dust and dirt particles move through your HVAC system many times throughout the day, and filters can only do so much to help clean it. Over time, dust builds up in the air ducts and makes it harder for air to move more freely which then leads to inefficiency. Having your air ducts cleaned regularly by a professional technician is a cost-effective and easy way to improve efficiency.
Avoid Blocking Vents. Indoor vents allow air to move through your HVAC system and many home owners without realizing it put furniture, blinds, children’s toys or any other household items in front of them. This common mistake can result in increased cooling and heating bills and in turn create inefficient air flow.
Check the Outside AC Unit. It can be difficult to keep leaves, branches or any other natural outside debris away from the unit, but you can take some basic steps to clean it up. Use a vacuum to remove any smaller bits of the debris around it while sweeping regularly to keep the leaves from burying inside of it.
Keep Curtains and Blinds Closed. Keeping your curtains and blinds closed during the hottest part of the afternoon can drastically decrease the cost of cooling your home and also improve your HVAC efficiency. The sun’s warm rays tend to increase the temperature inside, but keeping the windows covered decreased the amount of time your AC unit will have to run.
