- Have your Air Conditioning system tuned-up once in the spring and in the fall. This will keep your HVAC system running at peak efficiency. You want your system operating at peak efficiency because the system doesn’t have to work as hard. Allow it to do its job while saving you money.
- Replace your furnace or air handler filters on a regular basis. Lack of regular filter changes and maintenance can cause your system to breakdown which means unwanted repair bills. There is no simpler way to maintain your system and your local home goods store should have them in stock. Just be sure to write down the size located on the old filter and mark a reminder on your calendar as a reminder.
- Keep the thermostat constant. We know it is tempting when you are hot to bump the thermostat down but this can be very inefficient. You can, however, raise the thermostat 2-3 degrees during the day while you’re away to save money. Just keep in mind, every degree you raise the setting, you can expect to cut energy consumption by up to 3-5% which can really add up during peak season.
- Consider use of a programmable thermostat. By installing a programmable thermostat you are able to automatically increase or decrease temperatures during day and night to suit your family’s lifestyle and reduce energy costs. We are even offering a $50 coupon on our website until mid-April so now is a great time to upgrade.
- Clear or cut back shrubs and bushes from the outdoor unit. The sides of your HVAC unit require at least 12-18 inches of clearance for proper performance so make sure this space is properly maintained.
