Here are 5 Tips that will keep your systems running better for longer.


Tip #1 - Change your filters


One of the simplest yet most effective ways to maintain your HVAC system is by regularly changing your air filters. Clogged filters restrict airflow, causing your system to work harder and consume more energy. Aim to replace your filters every 1-3 months, depending on usage, to ensure optimal performance and indoor air quality.


Tip #2 - REgular maintenance


Regular maintenance is key to preventing costly repairs and extending the life of your HVAC system. Schedule annual inspections with a qualified technician to check for any issues, clean components, and perform necessary tune-ups. Investing in preventive maintenance now can save you money on repairs and energy bills in the long run.

Tip #3 - regular inspections


Your outdoor HVAC unit is exposed to the elements year-round, making it susceptible to dirt, debris, and buildup. Regularly inspect your outdoor unit and remove any obstruction such as leaves, branches, or grass clippings. Additionally, hose down the unit to remove dirt and debris, ensuring airflow and efficiency.


Tip #4 - ductwork inspections


Leaky ductwork can result in energy loss and reduced indoor comfort. Inspect your ductwork for any signs of leaks or damage, such as visible gaps or loose connections, and seal them with duct mastic or metal tape. Additionally, insulating ducts in unconditioned spaces, such as attics or crawl spaces, can further improve energy efficiency and comfort.


Tip #5 - updated technology


A programmable thermostat allows you to set customized heating and cooling schedules based on your lifestyle and preferences. By optimizing temperature settings throughout the day, you can reduce energy consumption and save money on your utility bills. Consider upgrading to a smart thermostat for added convenience and energy-saving features.
