Clean Your AC Filters
This simple thing can have a big impact on your HVAC condition and quality. Over time debris and dust build-up blocking off proper airflow causing the system to work a lot harder to do what it needs to. This means higher bills for you and more stress. During the summer months, your air conditioner can be in high use, causing the build-up to happen much faster than other times of the year. Depending on your HVAC system you might want to change the filter monthly, we would personally recommend that you check it at most every 60 days to make sure everything is working in top condition.
Leaky Ducts Can Be an Issue Too
Any compromises to your air ducts such as cracks or leaks can build up your expenses and issues too. If the seal is broken in any way then that means you’re not getting 100% of your promised conditioned air and just 75% or less. With leaky ducts it’s best to contact a professional to fix the issue, with how much we depend on air conditioning during summer its best to make sure everything is working in top shape without any doubt.
Make Sure to Check the Condition Outside as Well, Don’t Forget About Your Condenser Unit!
Just like your filters inside as time passes the condenser unit can have its own build-up, but this time its likely plant growth, debris, or even trash. Spring can bring in new plants and weeds growing in the way and blocking off its air intake, reducing performance overall. Before checking on it its best to turn off the HVAC system and then go outside and inspect.
Make sure there is nothing in the way like plant growth, trash, or other things around the outdoor condenser unit. It needs proper airflow to work in its best condition, we would recommend leaving a clearing around it about 3 feet for efficiency and safety. This will significantly hake your system more effective and cheaper as well.
Lastly Some Thermostat Tips!
If you have an old thermostat you can significantly reduce your HVAC costs by upgrading to a newer one, a programmable thermostat lets you comfortably set the temperature any time and anywhere. You can set it up to automatically change throughout the day like for instance when you want to save a bit when you are away at work during the day.
Even setting it to be a few degrees higher when you are away can help reduce your summer AC costs. Many now can also be controlled by your smartphone making changing the thermostat one of the easiest things on this list.
