3 Ways To Show Your HVAC System A Little Love This Valentine’s Day
Love is in the air…conditioning this Valentine’s Day. With winter wearing on and spring approaching, spare some love for your HVAC system. After all, it keeps your home cozy and comfortable during the hottest and coldest days we see here in Indianapolis. There are three ways you can show your HVAC system a little love this month.
Change Your Filters
Indoor air free of dust, pollen, and allergens? Yes, please! If your air filter looks like a fluffy gray kitten, it may be time to replace it. Dirty air filters can obstruct the airflow in your home, causing unnecessary strain on your unit. By changing your filters regularly, you’re extending the life of your unit, and improving your indoor air quality. Not only that, but you’re also saving money on utility bills and possible costly repairs in the future.
Dirt and neglect are the leading causes of HVAC system failure. It’s recommended you change your filters every 1-3 months, especially if you have pets or a lot of activity inside your home. The good news? Air filters are relatively inexpensive – and worth it.
Invest in a Programmable Thermostat
If you’re looking for ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency and lower utility costs, consider investing in a programmable thermostat. There are many benefits to having a programmable thermostat in your home.
Not only can a programmable thermostat contribute to lower heating and cooling bills, but it also puts less strain on your HVAC system. The automated and advanced features on a programmable thermostat allow you to change the temperature when out of the house, or even automatically turn it off completely when it’s not in use. You can extend the life of your HVAC system by programming it carefully and decreasing the amount of time it needlessly runs. A small investment in a programmable thermostat has big long-term rewards.
Schedule a Preventative Maintenance
There are many reasons why it’s important to maintain your heating and cooling equipment. Much like you wouldn’t drive your car 10,000 miles without changing the oil, the same logic holds true for maintaining your HVAC system. In fact, most manufacturer’s recommend a maintenance at least once a year. One sure way you can show your unit some love this Valentine’s Day is by scheduling a maintenance.
The Benefits of An Annual Maintenance:
- Saves you money on utility bills and future repairs
- Improves your air quality
- Extends the life of your unit
- Improves your comfort and safety
- Keeps your unit running smoothly and efficiently
