Compared to the rest of the United States, the winter season in the Southeast can be relatively short. However, it’s still important to properly care for your system so you can save money and ensure it runs efficiently during the colder months. Following the simple steps below can help you lower your costs.
Service your system
Servicing your system can be a quick and painless way to make sure that your system is not only up-to-date, but everything is working correctly. The more efficient your system, the more money you will save.
Change your filters
There are many things that can get stuck in filters, so you have to remember to change them often. If your filters are dirty or filled with pet hair and dust, your system will work less efficiently. If you have pets, you might have to change your filters as often as once a month.
Install a smart thermostat
With a smart thermostat, you can put your system on a set schedule so that when you are out of your house, the system can lower the temperature. Lowering the temperature when you aren’t home will save you money on your energy bill.
Add insulation to your exterior walls and attic
Adding insulation to your home will reduce heating costs by cutting down on the amount of heat lost through the walls and ceilings.
Replace your HVAC system
The older your HVAC system is, the less efficient it is going to be. While replacing your HVAC system may be costly, you will be saving significant money on gas and energy in the long run.
