Heating and Air Conditioning:

 

Believe it or not, you don’t have to spend hundreds to keep the systems in your home efficient and functional. Completing a few tasks yourself can save you money on professional maintenance, and potentially on a repair or replacement due to wear-and-tear in the future.

According to the One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® experts, homeowners can ensure their HVAC systems operate at peak performance with these tips.

1. Replace your air filters.
A clogged or dirty filter can make your system work harder, which consumes more energy. This can also lead to damage of the system.

2. Don’t block air vents.
Make sure air vents and registers are not blocked by rugs or furniture. You want to make sure air can move freely around the room.

3. Replace batteries in your thermostat.
Replace the batteries in your programmable thermostat, and consider upgrading to a Wi-Fi enabled thermostat, putting control at your fingertips on your smart phone.
