If you live in Wellington, Florida, your AC system is probably one of the most used systems in your home. There are several easy things you can do to make your HVAC system’s job a little easier as it cools down your home. The following tips will help you improve HVAC efficiency and save you money on your next utility bill.
Use Ceiling Fans
While your central air conditioning brings cool air into each room of your house, it could use some help circulating the air to achieve the desired temperature for each room. Using a ceiling fan will move around the hot air that rises, helping your HVAC system quickly replace the hot with the cold. Something as easy as using a fan will keep your HVAC system from overtaxing itself as it tries to cool your home.
Reduce Heat Exposure
While you may be aware of keeping out the sun’s heat from your home, also be conscious of when you use heat sources in your home. Avoid running the dryer or using the oven during the hottest part of the day. This practice will keep your HVAC system from working harder than usual and increase its overall efficiency.
Change Air Filters
As your air filters get full, your HVAC system has to work a little harder to push the air through your home. Change out your air filters each month or as recommended for your HVAC system. This small task will not only keep your HVAC system running smoothly, but also improve your indoor air quality.
Get an HVAC Checkup
If your HVAC system works hard to keep your home cool nearly all year, then it could use a checkup. Consider scheduling the checkup before the hottest part of the year to make sure your system is working efficiently before it has to work its hardest. The cost of regular maintenance is well worth the energy savings.
Keep your HVAC system running efficiently year-round to reduce energy consumption and utility costs. Call Stephen K Denny, Inc. today at (561) 250-7415 to schedule an HVAC checkup.
