Most people don’t understand the intricacies of the HVAC system in their Stafford, Texas, home. When you know more about your HVAC system, you can help it operate more efficiently. When your HVAC system operates as efficiently as possible, you will see savings on your monthly utility bills and extend the life of your system.
It Needs Maintenance Similar to Your Car
Just like you get your tires rotated and oil changed, your HVAC system needs maintenance also. You should have your HVAC contractor come out twice per year to provide maintenance on your heater and air conditioner. These tuneups include changing the air filters, cleaning the coils, and inspecting all the parts to make sure everything is operating efficiently. These maintenance checks keep your system running efficiently and prolong the life of it as well.
Your Thermostat Can Save You Money
By programming your thermostat, you can save money on your monthly utility bills. People waste much energy on heating or cooling an empty house. Upgrade to a programmable thermostat and make sure to set it to optimize energy savings throughout the day and night. Pre-setting your thermostat prevents you from swinging the temperature dramatically, wasting additional energy. For even more savings, consider upgrading to a smart thermostat, which you can control through your phone or tablet.
Central Air Isn’t Always Your Best Option
Most people consider central air the best option for cooling their home. Heat pumps and ductless systems are actually more efficient than central air. Heat pumps transfer air instead of using electricity to cool the air. Ductless systems don’t see the loss of air that tends to leak in the ducts while it’s going into your home. If you’re considering a new system, you may want to investigate different options besides central air.
