With the new year, we get the chance to enjoy a clean start and improve many aspects of our lives, including the way we use our Air Conditioning systems. Here are four things you can do to keep your AC running smoothly all year long.
Change Your Filters Regularly
Make a commitment to change the filters of your AC system at least every three months, or as indicated in your owner’s manual. This is a simple operation that heads off many potential problems and helps prevent small inconveniences from becoming big (and costly) headaches.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat adjusts the temperature of your home automatically according to a pre-set schedule that you can specify with great precision. You can even create a specific set of instructions for every day of the week. This way you set your temperature only once and then forget about it, keeping your home comfortable and saving on your energy bills.
Install Energy-Efficient Windows
Energy-efficient windows are the ideal complement for your air conditioning because they are designed to prevent heated or cooled air from escaping your home. If you consider that heat gain and heat loss through windows account for 25% to 30% of residential cooling and heating energy use, it’s easy to see how this can be a gamechanger for you and your home.
This 2021, don’t forget to service your HVAC unit at least once a year (during spring) or ideally twice a year (spring and fall). Regular maintenance ensures that your system runs without a hitch, even during the most demanding seasons of the year. Additionally, it also helps you save on energy bills and repairs since your unit will be less likely to break down.
