Winter is coming, and you know what that means: heating bills, cold nights, and endless repairs. It’s time to check your HVAC system before it becomes a costly problem.
Your heating and cooling system has the biggest impact on your energy bills. When it is efficient, you save money. If it’s not efficient, that usually means high energy bills (and wasted money). Today, the typical family spends $2,000 every year on energy bills, with half of that going toward keeping their homes cool or heated.
It’s probably time for a tune-up. It is important to remember that you need to clean your HVAC system before the heating season starts. Why? Because putting off preventative maintenance now means it will take more work later on. If you wait too long, there may be so much dirt and grime built up that it will take more time and money to get your system back into good shape. Here are some tips to help you get your system ready for winter.
Clean or Replace Your Air Filters
One of the most important things you can do to help your HVAC system run more efficiently is to keep the air filters clean. If they’re clogged, it will make it harder for your system to do its job. You should replace your air filters at least every three months. If you have pets, you may need to replace them more often.
Check the Air Vents
Another important part of your HVAC system is the air vents. Make sure they’re not blocked by furniture or other items. If they are, the system won’t be able to circulate the air properly. If you see dust, dirt, or grime built up on the vents, you should have them cleaned.
Get a Tune-up
If you haven’t had your HVAC system serviced in the past 12 months, then now is a perfect time. The HVAC service company can perform a comprehensive tune-up and look for potential problems. They will also do repairs if anything needs to be done before winter starts. If you have an older HVAC system, this will help keep it running efficiently.
HVAC services are important to keep your home comfortable during the winter. By keeping your air filters clean, checking your ducts, and getting a tune-up, you can help make sure your HVAC system is running efficiently and save money on your energy bills.
