Routine maintenance of your heating system will not only minimize your energy bills, but will ensure that your system is working properly day in and day out. Performing specific maintenance tasks in the fall will help to ensure that your HVAC system operates effectively and efficiently throughout the cold winter months. Here are a few important tips for proper maintenance of your HVAC system.
- Clean all vents and change your air filters – Changing your system air filters each month is by far one of the most important tasks you can perform to support the proper functioning of your HVAC system. Not only is it the most important task, but indeed it is the easiest task as well. Your air filters should be changed at minimum every three months, but in the winter, we recommend changing them every month. On the day you elect to change your filters make it a point to vacuum the air vents as well. This will keep them clean and allow proper flow of warm air and provide temperature regulation in your living space.
- Perform an HVAC inspection as part of your routine HVAC maintenance – It is important to perform annual routine maintenance to your HVAC system to ensure that it is running properly which includes a system inspection in the fall. This will help to prepare your heating system for the hefty demands that are put on it during the winter months. This is where our qualified technicians come in.
- Be sure that your home’s attic is properly insulated – The best way to help lighten the load put on your heating system is to ensure that your attic is properly insulated. Insulating your attic will keep the warm air in your living space and prevent it from making its way outdoors. This will enable your HVAC system to do a bit less work while maintaining proper, consistent temperatures in your home.
- Invest in a programmable thermostat – The appropriate temperature inside of your home is dependent upon who is at home or when no one is at home maintaining a suitable temperature until such time you return home later in the day. Many homeowners forget to adjust their thermostats before they head out in the morning hours or perhaps intentionally do not adjust them because they prefer to return home to a warm and comfortable home. Investing in a programmable smart thermostat can definitely have an impact on your energy usage during the cold winter weather. You can remotely set and manage your heating temperatures and customize your schedules as well. When you are able to adjust the temperature in your living space with your programmable thermostat you are sure to return home to a warm and comfortable environment each time, every time.
