In order to get the most out of your investment, there are little things you can do to keep your system running strong for many years. Continue reading below where we will outline some of the simple do’s and don’ts when it comes to your HVAC system.

Do

  • Schedule regular maintenance every six months: Your HVAC system sees a lot of wear and tear as the seasons change. It’s important to have your system checked by a professional every six months to ensure that it is in working order and doesn’t need any repairs.
  • Change your air filters: As air flows through the air filters, they remove dust, allergens, and other debris to give you the best quality of air. Because the filters are exposed to dirt and debris, they tend to get dirty pretty quickly. It’s always a good idea to change your filters every few months, as dirty filters will result in your HVAC working harder than it should.
  • Place your thermostat in a central location: In order to get an accurate reading of the temperature in your home, you need to place your thermostat in a central location. You want your thermostat as close to the center of the home as possible, otherwise you may experience some rooms that are either colder or warmer than others.
  • Use a programmable thermostat: A programmable thermostat is a great way to control the temperature of your home. If you want your HVAC system to be as efficient as possible, it’s a good idea to lower the temperature at night or when there is nobody home. A programmable thermostat can be set so that it will automatically adjust the temperature a few degrees without you having to adjust it.

Don’t

  • Turn the heat off during the winter: If you’re going on vacation, your first thought might be to turn the heat off because nobody will be home. While this may seem like a great way to save energy, in reality, turning the heat off runs the risk of your pipes freezing. Even though you won’t be home, there are still certain parts of your house that will need the heat.
  • Wait until it’s too cold to turn your furnace on: As the colder months approach, it’s a good idea to test your furnace to make sure it is in working order. The last thing you want is to wait until the last minute to turn on the heat, only to find out that your furnace needs repairs.
  • Ignore strange noises or smells: Strange noises or smells could be an indicator that your HVAC system has a problem. Don’t assume that the noise or smell is nothing and that it will go away on its own. Investigate the problem and call a professional right away.
  • Service your system on your own: If you’re trying to save yourself a couple bucks, servicing your HVAC system on your own is not the way to do it. Servicing your HVAC by yourself could result in more problems or repairs than if you had just called a professional.
