In an ideal world, you’d have plenty of time to stay on top of your HVAC system filter replacement schedule. Of courses, things are rarely that easy, we find many of our customers can’t remember the last time they replaced their air filter. Well, let this be your reminder! It’s easy to do, and can have a drastic effect on the air quality in your home as well as the stress your HVAC system endures this fall and winter.
There’s a lot of ways to make your HVAC system more efficient that don’t involve the system at all. Here are some time-tested tips:
- Make sure all the vents and registers are open throughout your house.
- Learn how to correctly program your thermostat. This will also help you sleep better!
- Check for drafty windows and doors. Either get them insulated, or call in pros to install energy-efficient.
- Use the sun! Open the curtains on windows that get a lot of sun during the day, and be sure to close them back up at night.
All of these will ease the burden on your HVAC system, which drastically decreases the risk of issues. On top of that, you’ll save quite a bit of money on your utilities!
