Let’s look at some tips to make your heating and cooling system run efficiently.
Some homeowners in the Southwest have gone green to save money. But there are various ways of running heating and cooling systems efficiently. Take note of these useful cooling and heating tips and you could see savings on your annual utility bills.
Change the Air Filters in the HVAC System Regularly
Homeowners should check the air filters every 30 – 60 days. If the filter is dirty or dusty it should be changed immediately. The filter may need to be changed frequently during summer and winter and less often during spring and fall. A dirty HVAC filter will obstruct the airflow and make the system work harder. Dirty or dusty air filters do not make efficient heating and cooling systems.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
Install a thermostat that can be programmed and you will be able to heat and cool your home as and when needed. Programmable thermostats help to reduce energy consumption and lower your utility bills. Programmable thermostats are particularly useful for homeowners who are out at work all day.
Inspect the Home Ductwork
An air leak in the home ductwork can cause the freshly conditioned air to be lost. A heating and cooling system with an air leak will be forced to work harder to compensate. Seal leaks and tears and replace older ductwork.
Ask a Professional to Service your HVAC Unit Annually
A well-maintained HVAC system makes an efficient heating and cooling system. Call a professional to inspect your system. This means that minor repairs can be carried out immediately. A well-tuned system works well and this means that your home will be heated and cooled efficiently.
