Care For Your Equipment
Did you know that as much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling? That's why it's imperative to take care of your equipment and ensure that it is running at its maximum efficiency. Here are some easy things that you can do to help your equipment help you!
1. Receive Regular Maintenance
Just like how a tune-up for your car can improve your gas mileage, yearly maintenance on your HVAC equipment can improve the efficiency and your comfort.
2. Change Your Air Filter
A dirty air filter will slow down air flow and make the system work harder and thus less efficient.
3. Program Your Thermostat
So many of us have smart thermostats but don't actually program them! According to Energy Star a programmable thermostat can save you over $180 every year in energy costs. If you don't have one, give us a call.
If your heating system is 15 - 20 years old and if your AC is 10 - 15 years old, it's time to have one of our Comfort Specialist's do an analysis of your system. It could be doing more harm than good from an efficiency standpoint.
