Your energy bill is influenced by the weather

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

It is possible that your HVAC system is not yet capable of handling the transition from heating to cooling.

You will need to perform end-of-winter maintenance on your HVAC system before it can switch gears. A new season is a perfect time to replace your air filter. A dirty air filter can negatively affect your HVAC system’s performance, resulting in higher energy consumption and an increasing your electric bill. Replacing your HVAC filter not only helps your unit perform better, but it will also improve your home’s indoor air quality. As a precaution, you should change your thermostat’s batteries just in case they gotten weaker over the previous year. In the event of a weak battery, your thermostat will not operate properly, resulting in poor indoor comfort. Be sure that your programmable thermostat is properly set for summertime temperatures as the warm weather approaches. Efficient airflow depends on clean air ducts. Check the ductwork carefully for signs of damage and disrepair as part of your winter maintenance. If your ducts are clogged with dust and debris, you should have them cleaned as soon as possible. You may not be able to perform those end of winter maintenance tasks on your own without the assistance of your HVAC technician. For example, only a highly trained professional can check your HVAC system’s refrigerant charge as well as track down and repair leaks.
