Too many homeowners take their HVAC systems for granted, only addressing concerns when something goes wrong. That is a backward approach. It is less cost-effective and can have a big impact on things like utility costs.
Whether you are in the heat of summer or the dead of winter, a well-functioning HVAC system is essential for staying comfortable. Unfortunately, too many homeowners take their HVAC systems for granted, only addressing concerns when something goes wrong. That is a backward approach. It is less cost-effective and can have a big impact on things like utility costs. Proper HVAC maintenance can reduce energy use by 10% to 20%, regardless of the climate zone. Further, improper and poor maintenance can increase energy use by 30% to 60%.
 
This is a big deal, especially for those looking to cut energy budgets while doing their part to make their heating and cooling system go green. But if you are new to heating and cooling system maintenance, it can be tough to know exactly where to start. That’s why we’re putting together this guide on how to maintain an HVAC unit seasonally. We will cover basic HVAC service, furnace repair and A/C repair, so you can make the changes you need to and ensure a long life for your HVAC system.

Conduct Seasonal Checks

As the growing season grinds on, shrubs, trees branches, and the like can start to encroach on your central AC’s outdoor unit. That can affect the efficiency of the condenser. Clear debris from around the unit and keep vegetation at least 2 feet away. It’s also important to clean indoor grills and filters on a monthly basis.

 Turn Up the Temperature

Raising the thermostat a single degree could shave 3 to 5 percent from your cooling costs. If your home doesn’t have a programmable thermostat, consider making the upgrade. By automatically adjusting temperatures when you’re asleep or away from home, the device can pay for itself in a few short years.
