Keep the Area Around Your HVAC System Clear
Your HVAC system needs plenty of space to breathe, so make sure you keep the area around it clear. This means clearing away any debris, leaves, or other obstructions, and making sure there’s plenty of space for air to flow in and out. If your HVAC system is located in a tight space, consider adding ventilation or a fan to help circulate air.
Install A Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat is a great way to get the most out of your HVAC system. By setting your thermostat to automatically adjust the temperature based on your schedule, you can save money on your energy bills and ensure that your HVAC system isn’t working harder than it needs to. At Martin Air, we include an Ecobee Wi-Fi smart thermostat upgrade with every new ac unit purchased and installed.
Now that we’ve covered some tips for getting the most out of your HVAC system, let’s talk about some behaviors that can shave years off of its life.
What Not To Do
Ignoring Regular Maintenance
We can’t stress enough how important regular maintenance is for your HVAC system. Skipping maintenance tasks like changing the air filter or cleaning the coils can lead to decreased efficiency, increased energy bills, and even system failure. If this seems overwhelming, leave it to the pros. At Martin Air, we’ve got all your routine maintenance needs covered!
Setting The Thermostat Too Low In The Winter Or Too High In The Summer
While it may be tempting to crank up the AC in the summer or blast the heat in the winter, setting your thermostat too low or too high can put unnecessary strain on your HVAC system. Instead, aim for a temperature that’s comfortable but not extreme.
Closing Vents Or Blocking Air Returns
Closing vents or blocking air returns may seem like a good way to save money on energy bills, but it can actually cause more harm than good. When air can’t flow freely through your HVAC system, it can lead to increased wear and tear and decreased efficiency.
Running Your HVAC System Constantly
Running your HVAC system constantly can put unnecessary strain on your system, leading to increased energy bills and decreased efficiency. Instead, consider using a programmable thermostat to adjust the temperature based on your schedule, and give your HVAC system a break when you’re not home.
