How to Save Money on Heating and Air Conditioning

Most people don’t think about getting maintenance on their heating and air conditioning system until it’s too late and a serious problem has occurred. At that point, you’re most likely going to be stuck with a costly repair, not to mention an uncomfortable home. Not only can routine maintenance save you money by avoiding repairs, but it can also reduce your energy costs. Here are a few problems that you might already be having with your furnace or air conditioner:

Dirty Air Filters

The filters in your HVAC unit, which are designed to filter unwanted dust and debris out of your home air supply, are liable to get clogged. It’s recommended that they be replaced at least every three months. A dirty air filter will restrict the air-flow from your system, forcing it to work harder and consume more energy. With a little regular maintenance, your air will be cleaner and your wallet will be heavier.

Worn Parts

As with any complex machinery, your heating and cooling system is only as good as the sum of its parts. Over time, some parts decrease in quality faster than others. While it might seem like your AC and heater are functioning normally, aging parts may be causing an increase in your energy costs. Having your unit inspected can ensure that any worn parts are replaced before they cause a breakdown or reduced efficiency.

Duct Insulation

An inspection of your HVAC system can determine if your air ducts are properly insulated. Without effective insulation, air will leak and become improperly distributed--costing you extra money. Additionally, dirty air ducts can harbor bacteria and dirt which can then be transferred into your air supply, contributing to a number of problematic health conditions.
For the most affordable solution, you’ll want to purchase a service plan from a qualified HVAC repair company. This will provide you with discounted routine maintenance on your entire HVAC system all year round, so you can have peace of mind knowing that your equipment is functioning at its optimal capacity.
