We’ve worked our way through the holidays and now we’ve arrived in the New Year. We just passed that time of year where we were in the midst of a holiday bustle—we know that the last few weeks probably ran you ragged. You were running around finding gifts, attending virtual parties, and trying to make sure that everything was ready to celebrate. In the midst of all that, you likely didn’t have a moment to consider your HVAC system. However, now you are noticing that something seems off. Or rather, you’ve noticed things are more expensive than they should be.
Think about how many times you’ve used your heater just in this past month. We’d guess that you’re using your heater close to every single day. That’s why you need to care of your HVAC system. We’re the right HVAC contractor in Indian Harbour Beach, FL for you.
What You Can Do
Here are a few simple things you can do to help your home’s HVAC efficiency:
Turn Your Thermostat Down
The best thing that you can do for your home comfort this winter is to actually turn your thermostat down. We know that this might seem counter-intuitive at first. All you want to do is turn your heater up as high as possible when you’re cold. We understand that this might be your first instinct, but this winter, we don’t want it to be your final action.
Try turning your thermostat down about three to five degrees this winter. You’ll notice that you’re still going to get your desired warmth, but that your heating bills will be a lot lower. This is a great way to cut down on your expenses without sacrificing your comfort.
Change Your Filter
Make sure that you’re changing your system’s filter once a season!
This is one of the simplest things a homeowner can do to improve their home health throughout the winter season. All you need to do is acquire a new filter that’s right for your heater and then head over to your unit to swap out the old one for the new. A new filter makes it easier for your heater to do its job which will reduce its energy use.
Upgrade When You Can
If you notice that you have parts of your heater that are completely outdated, then it’s time for you to schedule an appointment with our team members. Something as simple as updating your digital thermostat to a smart or Wi-Fi unit will help you get better quality heating this winter.
Call for Repairs When You Need Them
You know when you’ve had a problem that requires a little more than maintenance. This is when you need to call us for repair work. We know that it’s easy to shy away from this if you’ve had trouble with repairs in the past. We want to make it easy for you though. We’re here to repair your heater promptly and for an affordable price too.
