With the cold months coming, you will need to make a transition to increase warmth and ensure comfort in your home. Winter preparation includes cleaning chimneys, sealing windows, and clearing gutters for the sake of optimizing heat. The cold season is also the time to check your AC system in Thornton for necessary maintenance work and repairs. If you want to enjoy a warm, cozy winter season, do not wait until your heating system has issues before giving your HVAC system a thorough, professional checkup from Cozy Comfort.
Ensuring Heating Efficiency
Proper and timely maintenance is key to keeping your AC and heating in perfect working order. If not, you will experience your heating system breaking down just when you need it to work during the coldest days of winter. To keep costs down and avoid unpleasant surprises, it is better to keep up with the maintenance of your system through regular checkups than to attend to it only when something has gone wrong. Regular maintenance checkups will also help prolong the life of your heater and improve its output.
Help your heater maintain its optimal efficiency level with these steps:
Change Air Filters Regularly
Filters are crucial for airflow, efficiency, and air quality. When your filter is dirty or clogged, it makes the system work inefficiently and increases your energy costs. It also degrades indoor air quality, exacerbating asthma and allergy symptoms. Make sure you replace your filter every month. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, this can result in 5 to 15 percent energy savings.
Check Your Thermostat
A thermostat that’s not working correctly will affect your heating and air conditioning system’s efficiency. Make sure the thermostat responds appropriately when you turn it on and is set to maximize efficiency, especially during the times when your home will be unoccupied. Invest in a programmable thermostat if you don’t have one already to manipulate the heating of your home better. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, be sure and keep your thermostat set on cooler temperatures when you are leaving the home for the day.
