Top 4 Ways To Love Your HVAC Unit On Valentine’s Day
Your HVAC unit is truly the heart of your home. But without a little TLC every now and then, it could prove to be more of a heartache for you and your family. Here are the top 4 ways to love your heating and cooling unit on Valentine’s Day.
1. Seal Your Windows
Are you trying to enjoy a relaxing, cozy evening but get interrupted by cold drafts? Did you think you were opening the mail to find a love letter, but instead found your high energy bill? Both cold drafts and high energy bills could be a result of air leaks. Make sure your windows are sealed properly during the winter. Caulking and weather-stripping are two ways you can seal any air leaks that are around your windows. Otherwise, you’re letting out all that warm air and your HVAC unit will have to work harder to maintain comfortable temperatures.
2. Use A Smart Thermostat
We know you want the mood to be just right this Valentine’s Day. This starts with making sure the indoor temperature is as comfortable as possible. By using a smart thermostat, you have more flexibility and control over your comfort. When you leave your home, you can change the temperature right from an app on your phone to save on energy. You can also set it to automatically change to a more comfortable temperature right before you arrive back at home so you are never walking into a cold home in the winter – or an unbearably hot one in the summer.
3. Change Your Air Filter
Love is in the air… and that’s the only thing that should be! Before you plan for a romantic evening at home, consider changing your air filter. Your filter should be changed every 1-3 months. When it gets clogged with air pollutants, your HVAC unit has to work harder to try pushing air through. Not only does it cause a strain on your system, but it can also contribute to poor indoor air quality. If the air can’t circulate as well, pollutants can settle in areas around your home when usually your HVAC system would filter them out. And let’s face it – there’s nothing romantic about breathing in dust and mold.
4. Schedule Maintenance
One of the best things you can do for your HVAC unit is to pamper it. Maintenance for your HVAC unit is like a spa day for us – and who doesn’t like the gift of self-care? Take care of your HVAC unit by scheduling maintenance bi-annually (once for your AC unit and once for your furnace). Regular maintenance helps ensure your system is working efficiently and safely, while also prolonging its life and saving you money on energy bills.
