Nights and mornings are still chilly in the Valley of the Sun. When your HVAC system isn’t operating as well as it should be, you may be dealing with ever higher utility bills. You’ll want to follow these tips while the winter chill is still here to make certain your heating system is working as efficiently as it should be.


Often overlooked, blocked or excessively dirty HVAC vents can block warm air from freely flowing inside your home. Clean vents mean your HVAC system doesn’t have to run as long to circulate air, saving you money on monthly energy bills.


You’ll want to make certain your attic isn’t hindering your HVAC system from operating at peak operating condition. By insulating the attic properly, you’ll be able to keep warm air from escaping outside. A home inspection by an experienced contractor will allow you to know how much heat your attic is currently losing outdoors. A well-insulated attic will save you money on energy costs winter, spring, and all summer long.

Schedule Maintenance

Your HVAC system requires routine maintenance to operate at peak performance. You can easily set up a schedule based on advice from the expert technicians at Bruce’s Air Conditioning & Heating. Twice yearly maintenance is recommended to identify potential issues and repair any malfunctioning components. Bruce’s can keep you up to date on any system upgrades available for your HVAC’s age and condition.


One of the best ways to guarantee that your HVAC system operates at maximum efficiency is to use a programmable thermostat. By installing a programmable thermostat, you’ll be able to adjust the heating and cooling of your home at different times of the day. By doing this small step, you can decrease your monthly energy bills up to 20 percent.

Outside Units

You’ll want to do a visual inspection around your outdoor HVAC equipment to make sure there isn’t dirt, debris, or gravel blocking it. Clear out any leaves or branches from the outside unit. Dust and debris buildup on the condenser unit or compressor may lead to decreased efficiency and damage. Other foreign objects can damage coolant lines and coil fins. You’ll want to trim weeds and grass to help promote good airflow and reduce system wear and tear. If anything gets lodged in the outside unit, contact your local HVAC company to remove the object safely.
