As homeowners across the country are abundantly aware, the heat of summer brings higher cooling costs. However, much of the energy consumed for cooling your home actually ends up going to waste due to inefficiency and poor maintenance. Maintaining your HVAC can help you cool your home more efficiently and save money. Here are some tips for maintaining your HVAC:
Replace Your Filter
While most HVAC maintenance jobs require the help of a professional technician, replacing your air conditioner’s filter is an easy job that you can do on your own. A clean filter can make a huge difference when it comes to efficiency. When you fail to replace your filter regularly, it can become clogged with particulate matter like dust, pollen, and mold. As a result, your HVAC system’s airflow becomes compromised, leading to decreased efficiency.
Hire a Professional
The best thing you can do for your HVAC system, regardless of the season, is to hire a professional HVAC technician to inspect and repair your unit. A professional HVAC technician has the training and expertise necessary to spot potential issues and make the necessary repairs before they become too serious. With regular professional maintenance, you can ensure that your HVAC system is operating as efficiently as possible. You can also prolong the life of your HVAC system, which means you won’t have to prematurely spend thousands of dollars on a new unit. If your system is more than 10 years old, however, you should consider replacing it with a newer, Energy Star-rated model.
Don’t let high cooling costs ruin your summer. By changing your filter regularly and having a professional HVAC technician inspect your unit, you can help improve your air conditioner’s efficiency and prolong its life.
