Simple habits to help your heating and air conditioning unit maintain a consistent temperature.
Keep March’s ever-changing temperatures outside with habits that’ll have your heating and air conditioning unit maintaining a consistent temperature. Replacing filters, checking your vents, and scheduling annual maintenance are three easy ways to help your HVAC work better. Not only will it ensure you avoid unwelcome cold mornings, but your wallet will also thank you.
Let’s take a closer look at these three healthy HVAC habits:
Swap out your old filters monthly during the heating season. Measure your air filter, and grab the correct size ranging anywhere from 12 x 12 inches to 30 x 30. If you prefer a washable filter, they cost around $20 and can last up to five years, as long as you wash them regularly. Jot down the date on the filter frame when replacing it or set a reminder on your smartphone.
Scan your house to see if anything is blocking your vents. Furniture, plants, or toys may be sitting in front or on top of vents, blocking the flow of heat into a room. Avoid closing vents and registers because it can disrupt the system’s cooling process. This can result in damaged parts and a shorter lifespan. Vacuuming out accumulated debris will enable the vents to work evenly. If a surface cleaning isn’t doing the trick, have a professional inspect for blockages and other potential problems.
The heating and cooling experts advise homeowners to schedule a professional HVAC system inspection and cleaning twice a year.
