Preparing Your HVAC for the Summer

Spring is the perfect time to get your air conditioner ready for the summer. Spring maintenance will improve your home’s air quality by addressing dust buildup and clogged air filter. Prioritizing your HVAC during spring cleaning will also allow you to have a more cost-efficient system, which will help you minimize energy costs.

Clean your vents
Even if everything is working properly with your HVAC, you may still experience reduced airflow if your vents aren’t clean.

Test the unit and if you have an issue, reach out for a routine HVAC maintenance appointment.
Preventive care will help diagnose problems and issues in your HVAC system before they get worse.

As a reminder: Supplying and changing heating and air conditioning filters as needed is the resident’s responsibility, if your unit is equipped with a furnace and central air.

5 Easy Ways to Save on Your A/C Bill

Everyone looks forward to the warm weather that the summer season brings, until it turns their house into a sauna. Running your AC all summer puts a strain on your cooling system and your bank account. Here are five tips on how you can still keep cool, extend your HVAC’s life, and lower your bills!

Cover your windows. During the warmest part of the day, close your blinds to keep out the sun. It can also help insulate your windows, which stops the cold air from escaping.

Use fans. Most ceiling fans have a small switch on the base that allows you to change the blade’s rotation. During summertime, you should have your fans turning counterclockwise to push the air down and properly circulate the room.

Clean or replace your A/C filter. Air filters keep your AC system running smoothly because they stop dust from blocking your air vents. If your HVAC filter is filled with dirt and debris, air can’t circulate as easily. Air filters need replacing every six months or so.

Keep windows and doors closed. Check for gaps, cracks, and any openings. Have them sealed or cover over them.

Ask your utility company about discounts, budget billing, and other options that could help you reduce your A/C costs. You can save 10 percent a year on your air conditioning bills by setting your thermostat just 10 to 15 degrees higher for eight hours each day, according to the Energy Office. The US Department of Energy recommends aiming for an indoor temperature of 78 degrees F when you’re not at home.
