Embrace the spirit of affection this February by showering your HVAC system with the care it deserves. Take advantage of this opportune moment to ensure that your heating and cooling system is not only thriving but also operating efficiently, sparing you from unnecessary expenses. Here are some thoughtful ways to show your love for your HVAC system this month.
Replace Air Filters
Kickstart the month with a simple air filter change. Boost efficiency and system longevity by replacing the filter every 1-3 months, depending on the type of filter. A clean filter prevents strain and can help reduce energy consumption. Clean filters ensure proper airflow, reducing the workload on your HVAC system.
Keep Thermostat Settings Reasonable
Make sure to keep temperature settings on your thermostat reasonable. Adjusting the thermostat constantly or setting the temperature too high causes your HVAC system to work harder, putting extra strain on it. Give your HVAC system some love by programming the temperature lower at night and while you’re away from home.
Upgrade Your Thermostat
Another way to spread the love this month is to consider upgrading to a programmable or smart thermostat. Not only will your HVAC system thank you, but you’ll reap the benefits of a more comfortable and energy-efficient home. These devices do a lot more than just temperature control. They enhance efficiency, promoting the effective operation and longevity of your HVAC equipment.
Check the Outdoor Unit
Don’t forget about the exterior unit of your HVAC system if you have one. It needs some love too. Debris like ice and snow can get stuck in and around it, hindering airflow and potentially causing damage. Every so often, take a minute to inspect the unit and remove any accumulated ice or snow and help your HVAC system work better.
Learn About Your System
One of the best ways you can better take care of your HVAC system is by learning more about it. Get to know how it operates, its main components, and the small maintenance tasks you can do to keep it working optimally. This will help you recognize potential issues and protect the investment that is your heating and cooling system.
Finally, make sure you always schedule annual maintenance at a minimum. We also recommend seasonal tune-ups to ensure your system is primed and ready for the next season. It’ll help your unit live a full, healthy life and it’ll keep more money in your pocket.
