Purchasing a new heating and cooling system is a big investment for home owners. Knowing how to get the best results from your new HVAC system can keep it running efficiently and effectively for many years to come. It is very important to have a trusted HVAC professional advise you when purchasing a new heating or cooling system. They can ensure you have a proper sized system which is important for both energy use and comfort. They can also make sure the equipment is installed in the most advantageous part of your home.
Regular service of your system will boost efficiency and decrease the number of repairs. This step is essential to saving money. It is important to note that your system won’t last as long without regular maintenance.
Every system is different, so be sure to ask your technician how often your filter needs to be swapped out. Changing filters in your heating system is important for furnace longevity and clean indoor air quality.
Make sure vents are not blocked by furniture or other debris. We also recommend cleaning ducts regularly with your vacuum hose and maintaining them with a professional cleaning service as needed.
You will want to determine the ideal temperature for your home during the day and the evening. We recommend using either a programmable thermostat or a smart thermostat. Both of these options will ease the system gradually from one temperature to the next. Using a programmable or smart thermostat improves your furnace efficiency.
If leaves or snow are building up on or around the unit, it most likely will not work correctly. Poor landscaping can also lead to faster erosion of the condensing unit.
Closing your curtains and windows at night helps prevent heat from escaping. Sealing leaks, windows and doors also help to keep the warm air in and the cold air out. Utilizing ceiling fans is an easy but effective way to help your furnace run efficiently
