The kids are back in school and Fall is just around the corner. Before we know it the sweltering days of summer will be gone. Before temperatures start to drop, make sure to look at these tips to get your HVAC unit running at peak performance. 1. Check Windows and Doors Windows and doors that are leaking allow cold air into the home forcing you to use your HVAC system more to achieve your personal comfortable temperature. Check the caulking and weather stripping for all doors and windows and replace as needed. 2. Thermostats Many homeowners pre-program their thermostats and never think about them again. As temperatures begin to cool, reprogram your thermostats to reflect the cooling temperatures. Setting the thermostat higher while you are away during the day and at night while you sleep will save you big when your bill arrives. 3. Replace filters It sounds easy. A clean filter is vital for efficient airflow. If the filter is dirty, the air is slower and more energy is required resulting in higher costs. 4. Clean the Vents Make sure there are no obstructions in front of vents such as furniture. Confirming that all vents are blowing and reaching the targeted areas is a great way to save money. 5.
