No matter the season, maintaining a comfortable and energy-efficient home is an absolute priority. Here at All Climate Heating & Air Conditioning, quality reflects our dedication to keeping your home comfortable and efficient all year round. With these expert DIY tips, we’re putting the power of comfort and trust in your hands.
1. Regular Maintenance: Keeping your heating and air conditioning units in tip-top shape hinges on regular check-ups. Dirt accumulates in the filters over time, lessening efficiency and escalating costs. To avoid this, change disposable filters once a month during peak seasons and clean washable ones frequently to ensure optimum function.
2. Sealing Leaks: Inspect your home for leaks, primarily in attics, basements, and around windows. Any gaps or cracks can lead to substantial loss of heated or cooled air, meaning your units work harder to compensate, and energy bills increase. Fill in smaller gaps with caulk, and for larger ones, look at using expandable spray foam.
3. Proper Insulation: Check insulation levels, especially in attics. Heat rises, and inadequate roof insulation could result in a loss of up to 25% of your home’s heat during winter, making your furnace work harder and increasing costs. Similarly, proper insulation can keep your home cooler in the summer.
4. Smart Thermostat: Switching to a smart thermostat offers greater control over your home’s temperature. This device learns your habits and adjusts accordingly, providing energy-efficient heating and cooling that optimizes comfort.
5. Upgrade to Energy-Efficient Equipment: If your unit is more than 15 years old, consider investing in an energy-efficient model. Not only will this reduce your carbon footprint, but it will also lower energy bills in the long run.
6. Professional HVAC Services: DIY tips and tricks are a great starting point. However, relying on trusted, professional HVAC service ensures that your units receive the most comprehensive care, increasing their longevity and overall efficiency.
