Regardless of the time of year, your thermostat is something that you’re always in tune with so that you can maintain the comfort of your home. With that being said, changing your thermostat too often and too drastically can leave your HVAC system working overtime and increase the amount that you’re paying the utility company.
If this winter has had your bills at an all-time high, you’re going to want to check out today’s blog post! The team at Queen City Heating & Cooling — your Top Rated Local® HVAC Company — is going to go over a few tips to help you save some money throughout the year. When you’re in need of a high-quality HVAC company that you can trust in Springfield, look no further than Queen City Heating & Cooling. For now, let’s cover a few of those money-saving tips!
Set Your Thermostat
One of the first things that you can do to save money and energy this year is to set your thermostat. Having a thermostat set at a temperature that you’re most often comfortable at ensures your HVAC unit isn’t always working to heat or cool the home. We always recommend setting your thermostat to 65 degrees at the lowest during the winter and 60 in the summer. This, of course, will vary depending on what temperature you’re most comfortable at.
Replace Your Air Filter
Your HVAC system not only provides you with cool and warm air, but it also enhances the quality of air that is being pushed throughout the house. When the filter in your system is old or completely full of dust and debris, your HVAC system has to work extra to push that air through the vents. The only way that you can keep this from happening is by replacing your air filters regularly. Doing this every six months (more if you live on a dirt road or have pets in the house) can not only reduce the amount of work your system does, but it can enhance the quality of air within your home.
An HVAC system can’t work efficiently if it has repairs that need to be made or is outdated. In order to ensure your HVAC system is up and working as it should be, you absolutely want to make sure that you have a professional come out and perform routine maintenance on your HVAC system. By having a professional stop by and check on your system, you can catch problems early on, avoid expensive repairs and replacements, and maintain system efficiency through and through!
