Use the tips in this guide to help get your HVAC system ready to handle the heat of the summer months and maximize its energy efficiency for you to save more on energy costs.
- Schedule your annual HVAC system tune-up
This helps prevent breakdowns and any costly repairs before they happen and will help keep the system running at maximum efficiency.
- Get a programmable thermostat installed
With the ability to program when you want the system to turn off and on, day or night, helps you manage your energy costs more easily by potentially up to 10%! It’s best to have a professional HVAC technician install your programmable thermostat.
- Don’t forget to remove any HVAC covering
It may be obvious but try to do it a few weeks before you think you might switch it on for the first time for the season to get air flowing in and around your HVAC system.
- It’s important to replace HVAC system filters
This will help you breathe cleaner, healthier at home and help the system run more effectively. If you’re comfortable doing this yourself, it’s easily done. A professional technician should also do this as part of your system’s annual tune-up.
- Clean the area around your HVAC system
By simply removing dirt, leaves, grime and debris from the exterior and around the outdoor unit, you will help it run more smoothly. Do not attempt to clean the HVAC system’s interior. That should be part of any annual system tune-up performed by a professional technician.
