HVAC System Got You Down? Here’s How to Keep It Up and Running.

With colder months fast approaching, you might be eyeballing your thermostat as your home becomes a little chilly. Unfortunately, if you don’t keep up with regular HVAC maintenance, it’s likely that those few degrees you’re inching up to keep warm will cause your energy bill to spike. In fact, heating and cooling accounts for as much as 50% of your energy use. And if you’ve got an inefficient system calling all the shots, then you could be looking at an expensive winter.

Keep Your System Clean

Regularly changing or cleaning your furnace filter is critical to maintaining your home’s air quality and improving the efficiency of your HVAC system. It can even extend the life of your equipment.

Filter replacement also saves you money. A clogged filter can cause your system to work a lot harder to heat your space, leading to bigger bills each month. Plus, by replacing the filter and keeping up with proper maintenance, you’ll increase the life of your system, saving you money in the long run. If you haven’t done so already, inspect your existing filter for signs of wear. If it looks dirty, you might be overdue for a replacement.

Lucky for you, changing a furnace filter is a simple job that anyone can do — once you find the right filter for your system.
