Winter officially arrived on December 21 in the Valley of the Sun! Overnight low temperatures often dip well below 50 degrees during this season. This means you’ll want to ensure your heating system is working optimally. Take a look at the following five HVAC tips for this holiday season to help you stay comfortably warm.
It’s not uncommon, even in newer homes, for homeowners to experience small sized cracks in doors, windows, and other openings. When heat escapes outdoors, your heating unit has to work overtime to maintain a warm environment indoors. Bruce’s technicians can perform an energy audit to spot areas where heat is escaping and up to $150 of an energy audit is tax deductible.
Check Fire and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Fire and carbon monoxide detectors are designed to detect and alert you to the presence of smoke, fire, or dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in your home. They’re your first line of defense against potential disasters. It’s important to test these devices monthly and replace batteries yearly.
Replace Your Air Filters
When air filters are filled with dirt, dust, and other contaminants, it’s difficult to maintain indoor air quality. Clogged, dirty air filters not only hinder the function of your HVAC system, but they also reduce the quality of your indoor air and increase your monthly energy bill. By changing out filters once a month, you’ll get cleaner air circulating throughout your home.
Get a Heating Tune Up
Perhaps the single most important thing you can do to keep your HVAC system running smoothly is to get a tune up. HVAC systems require regular maintenance to keep them running properly and reduce the chances of components breaking down. You may want to consider purchasing a maintenance plan for even greater peace of mind to help you stay on track with your maintenance and to save on any repairs you may need down the road.
