It’s the new year – and that means resolutions. Most typically involve getting in better shape or saving more money. We can’t help with the scale, but we can help with the latter resolution. Your AC and heating system takes up more than half of your home’s energy bill. So check out these four tips we have to increase the efficiency and life of your heating and cooling systems.
Change your air filters regularly
Be sure that you’re changing your air filters on a regular basis to help increase the flow of air within your home and through your HVAC system. When it’s time to change your filter, make sure that you’re using high quality air filters to get the most out of it. Change your filter every month or two in the winter months and at least once a month in the summer months.
Save energy where you can
When it comes to those hot summer days, you might realize an increase in your AC usage and your energy bill. Rather than breaking the bank and pushing your AC unit to the limit, try to find ways to reduce the energy usage around your home. Here are a few things to do in your house when the summer heat is just too much:
- Close all the windows so the cool air stays inside.
- Close window curtains during the heat of the day to limit the amount of heat coming from outside.
- Turn on your ceiling fans.
Annual HVAC maintenance
Keeping up with your HVAC maintenance is important if you want it to live a full life and stay as efficient as possible. So, be sure to have your HVAC system checked and maintained annually.
