In our blog mini-series, “Winter Energy Efficiency Tips,” the HVAC experts at Fresh Air Concepts outline several tasks the average homeowner can accomplish to better the energy efficiency of their home, thus saving them money on their monthly electricity bills. So far we have explored the Benefits of Programmable Thermostats, how to Find and Seal Air Leaks, and the importance of Attic Insulation. This week, we are going to explore the importance of Regular HVAC Maintenance.
According to Energy.gov, one of the best ways to increase the energy efficiency of your home is to properly maintain your heating system. That means Regular HVAC Maintenance, which can help extend the lifespan of your system and ensure it is running at peak efficiency.
Regular HVAC Maintenance
- Furnace Filters: Be sure to replace your furnace filter once a month or as needed.
- Schedule HVAC Maintenance: Whether your heating system is new or old, lack of proper maintenance by a licensed and qualified HVAC contractor is one of the leading causes of malfunctioning equipment and high operation costs. So what are you waiting for? Pick up the phone and schedule your HVAC inspection. It is best to do this before winter. This will help ensure you are not left in the cold. Nothing is worse than waiting for an HVAC technician to show up while you are stuck in a freezing cold home. Brrrrrrrrrr!
- HVAC Maintenance Agreement: Annual maintenance and occasional repairs are much more cost effective than high heating bills. Annual maintenance and occasional repairs are also far cheaper than replacing your entire HVAC system. This is why Fresh Air Concepts offers several maintenance plans to help extend the useful life of your system. A typical maintenance visit includes a complete systems safety and functions check; changing of air filters; the inspection, cleaning, and sanitization of the inside and outside coils; cleaning of the pumps and motors; cleaning of the condensate pans; inspection of the drain lines for restrictions, and a quick check of your refrigerant levels.
