Energy Bills and Weather

Having endured months of harsh winter weather, you may be looking forward to the arrival of warmer spring temperatures.

Your HVAC system might not be ready to go from heating to cooling yet. Your HVAC system needs some end-of-winter maintenance before it can switch gears. You should replace your air filter at the start of a new season. Your HVAC system’s performance can be negatively affected by a dirty air filter, which leads to higher energy consumption and higher electricity bills. You’ll improve the air quality in your home by replacing your HVAC filter. It’s a good idea to change your thermostat’s batteries just in case they’ve gotten weaker. Poor indoor comfort can be caused by a weak battery. Make sure your programmable thermostat is set for summertime temperatures as warm weather approaches. For efficient airflow, you need clean air ducts. Check your ductwork for any signs of damage or disrepair as part of your winter maintenance. Have the ducts cleaned if they’re clogged with dust and debris. A visit from your HVAC technician can accomplish those end of winter maintenance tasks you might not be able to do on your own. For example, only a highly trained professional can check your HVAC system’s refrigerant charge as well as track down and repair leaks.
