We’re rounding out winter, so we know that everyone is either talking about ending the heating season strong or preparing for spring. While these topics are both relevant, we want to talk about something that’s timeless: HVAC tips!
There are certain truths that exist in heating and cooling no matter what time of year it is. We’ve realized that not all homeowners are privy to this. We want to change that today—starting with you! Read through our blog today and take these tips with you. They’ll help you stay comfortable, save money, and help your HVAC system in Hobe Sound, FL last longer.
Tips You Need to Know
Here are a few tips that will change the game for your heating and cooling service:
1. Always Call for Maintenance
Maintenance is a service that can dramatically change how your heater runs. You need to make sure that you’re investing in this annually. If you have a heater and an air conditioner, we suggest you invest in this service two times a year—once to prepare your heater for winter and another time to prepare your AC for summer. It will help you avoid repairs and save you money too.
2. Change Your Filter
It’s important to change the HVAC filter in your air conditioner or heater. You should swap out this filter once a season. It’s the best way to ensure that you’re getting clean, efficienct heating and cooling.
3. Get a Great Thermostat
If you don’t have a smart or Wi-Fi thermostat in your home, then you’re not getting the best heating and cooling. Don’t keep scraping by with your old digital thermostat. A new model can take you to new heights, and the best installation for a new model comes from a professional.
4. Invest in IAQ
Your indoor air quality and your home’s temperature control go hand-in-hand. You’re not going to get one without the other. Make sure you have an appropriate indoor air quality system in your home to really get the best from your space.
5. Use Your Ceiling Fan
You can use your ceiling fan all year. You can use it to circulate air and cool your body in summer, and you can reverse the flow to bring warm air down from the ceiling to the living space in winter.
6. Ask for (Professional) Help
Make sure you call for repair work when you need it. If you notice a problem budding in your home, don’t wait until late in the season to address it. This is how you’re going to stumble into bigger repairs and even breakdown issues.
7. Choose Wisely
We’re talking about thermostat temperature here. It’s easy to get carried away when the temperatures in your home feel extreme. But you need to choose wisely. We always suggest you choose a mild temperature. You’re not really going to be comfy at home once your thermostat reaches a temperature like 80°F. Choose something more like 72°F and wait for your home to warm up.
