Summer is here, and the more the temperature rises, the more you want to be sure your HVAC system will meet your cooling needs. Proper usage and scheduled maintenance will reduce the chances of an HVAC malfunction. Here are a few tips for using your HVAC system efficiently this summer in Weaverville, NC.
Install a Smart Thermostat
Upgrade to a smart thermostat if you intend to save money and make your HVAC system more efficient. A smart thermostat certified by Energy Star can save you about 8% on heating and cooling costs.
Clean Air Vents and Change Filters
Your home’s overall indoor air quality has a significant impact on your HVAC system’s cleanliness. To ensure optimum HVAC functionality, you need to achieve superior indoor air quality.
First, you should clean your air vents. Air vents can develop blockages from dust and debris that spike your energy bills. Moreover, if you have spores and mildew in your ducts, you’ll be exposing yourself to health risks.
You also need to replace your air filters at least every few months. Fortunately, air filters are relatively cheap and easy to install.
Call a Professional for Repairs, Service and Maintenance
A professional can do so much more for your system than you can. An HVAC system often has complicated parts that require expert assessment and diagnosis. Consider signing up for a seasonal maintenance plan.
An HVAC expert can identify issues that could potentially lead to permanent damage.
