Maintenance Tips for Winter
How is your HVAC system doing? Winter is coming so make sure to have your system serviced to ensure it works smoothly all season.
Keep your family warm through the North Dakota winter with these tips:
Keep It Clean Your HVAC system relies on a filter to work properly; check this filter monthly and replace it regularly during winter months. Dust and debris on the filter make the system work harder to do its job- costing you more in energy costs. Plus, the wear and tear can shorten the life of your HVAC system. Keep it clean.
Be Prepared Take the time to prepare your home for the winter ahead. Fill in gaps or cracks around doors and windows, which helps the system do its job more efficiently. Consider caulking and weather stripping to further conserve energy that could be escaping the home
Invest in a Programmable Thermostat Keep costs down by setting a programmable thermostat for your HVAC system. This prevents the constant fluctuation and fidgeting with the temperature that could be costing your money, month after month. A programmable thermostat gives you the option of finding the perfect temperature for your personal preferences, setting it, and forgetting about it! Furthermore, it costs less money in utility costs than when you are constantly adjusting the thermostat.
Consider Buying New Is your system older than ten years? It might be time to consider investing in a new system. Talk to a reliable HVAC professional to determine which is the best route for you- as well as to review costs of replacing your current system.
Maintain Your System The best way to avoid problems in winter is to maintain your HVAC system, year-round. Keep it clean, inspected, and serviced by one of our certified technicians. Schedule a general visit every spring and fall, ideally.
Use these tips to maintain your HVAC system, and keep your loved ones warm this winter.
