It’s fall, which means it’s time to switch your heating and air conditioning system over. What can you do to prep for the cooler weather? Check out these three HVAC tips you’ll be thankful for this season.
Tip #1: Change Your Air Filter
If you haven’t done so already, now’s the time to change your air filter. Dirt, dust, debris, dog hair, dander, and other pollutants can clog your filter and make it less effective. Changing out the filter every 30-90 days can make your heating system run better and keep your indoor air cleaner.
Tip #2: Have Your HVAC Serviced
Twice-yearly maintenance can keep your system running better year-round. In the fall, it’s critical to have your heating equipment serviced to prep for winter. Cleaning, inspecting, calibrating, lubricating, and adjusting all of the components can help reduce the potential for breakdowns and make your heating system run more efficiently.
Tip #3: Upgrade Your Thermostat
Give yourself an early holiday gift by upgrading your thermostat. A smart thermostat can help you use less energy and keep your house more consistently comfortable. With easy programming capabilities and remote access, you can set it to adjust the temperature for when you’re away or when you’re home. Keeping your home cooler when you’re not there can save you significantly on your monthly energy bills. A smart thermostat lets you program it to fit your lifestyle and the comfort preferences of you and your family.
