Schedule HVAC System Maintenance
Before chilly autumn days and nights arrive, schedule HVAC system maintenance. Our trained HVAC technicians will inspect your furnace or heat pump to ensure the unit is operating correctly. In addition, we’ll also inform you of any essential repairs that need to be made so that you can avoid an unexpected system breakdown in the future. With regular HVAC system maintenance, you’ll benefit from energy savings this fall.
Replace the Air Filter
When a new season arrives, it’s time to change your HVAC system’s air filter, especially if you can’t recall the last time that you replaced it. With a new, clean air filter in place, your HVAC system will operate more efficiently and improve your home’s indoor air quality. As a result, your home will have cleaner air and you’ll benefit from improved HVAC system efficiency.
Consider a Programmable Thermostat
With summer heat waves behind us in North Carolina, fall is the ideal time to turn your attention to your home’s thermostat. For maximum energy efficiency, consider investing in a programmable thermostat. This device enables you to establish temperature settings based on your family’s schedule. For example, when your family members are at work and school, you can program the thermostat to lower the temperature setting inside your home. By using a programmable thermostat, you’ll be able to help your HVAC system operate more efficiently. In addition, you can save about 10 percent each year on your utility bills.
