Your heating and air conditioning system is essential part to your safe and comfortable home, but are you getting the best HVAC performance you can? We’ve got three HVAC unit tips to help you keep yours at its most efficient and effective.
Tip #1: Don’t Skip Maintenance
You wouldn’t skip regular service on your car, would you? Keeping your HVAC unit tuned up is as important, if not more important, than keeping your car running right. Not only will regular service ensure it’s operating at its most energy efficient, but it will also reduce the chance of breakdowns and cut down on the cost of repairs.
Tip #2: Change the Air Filters
Air filters serve two valuable functions – they help keep the air in your home cleaner, and they help protect your heating and cooling equipment from damage caused by dust, dirt, and debris. Changing the filters every 30-90 days can help your system perform at its best.
Tip #3: Ensure Proper Airflow
Some people think closing vents can help focus air in certain areas of your home, however, it’s better for your HVAC system if all vents remain at least partially open and unobstructed. This will ensure proper airflow and balance between the system, the air intake, and the outflow vents.
For your heating and air conditioning to take care of you, you need to take care of it. Keeping your system running at optimal performance will ensure your home stays comfortable consistently and year-round. Contact the pros at H.H.
