Change Your Filter
Your HVAC unit works incredibly hard during the winter and summer months. With all that hard work, your systems air filter will most likely be clogged or dirty due to all the dust and particulate matter it collects from your home.
Most HVAC systems require that you change your air filter once per month, though some high-quality filters can last a few months longer. A clogged or dirty filter affects the air you breathe, as well as the performance and longevity of your heating and cooling equipment. In most cases, your heating and cooling systems share the same air filter (you may have one or more filters in your home), so it’s important to make your filter replacements in both hot and cold seasons.
Scheduling Consistent Maintenance Services
By having annual maintenance services completed on your HVAC system, you will ensure the best performance from your equipment, and save money on your utility costs in the long run. Most local heating professionals will provide you with a clear understanding of your heating and cooling system’s condition, whether any immediate or preventative repairs should be done, and if your filter is clogged. By having these routine maintenance checks completed, you won’t have to worry about why your house is too cold or overheated while saving money.
Home Energy Audits
Piggybacking off of consistent maintenance services, having a home energy audit done is also beneficial towards maximizing heating efficiency. A home energy audit allows you to learn how you’re using your energy, determine where it’s being wasted, and will help prioritize your efficiency upgrades. Once you figure out where your energy and heat is being used, Green Apple heating professionals can help review your HVAC system and suggest improvements on how to efficiently get the most out of your system.
Sealing Your Home
Sealing your home can be incredibly beneficial when it comes to maximizing your heating efficiency. The point of sealing your home is to prevent the warm air in your home from escaping, meaning that if you have specific areas in your home where air leaks, you run the risk of losing all the moisture in your home while the cold, dry air enters your home. After you or a Green Apple heating professional perform a home energy audit to find out where the leaks are, you can then take the necessary steps towards sealing your home.
