Energy Tip: HVAC Tune-up

HVAC_maintenance_603x150

Strange as it seems, summer is almost here. It’s time to schedule your annual air conditioner service now.

Whether you have an old, inefficient system that you haven’t yet been able to replace or a new, efficient, ENERGY STAR® rated HVAC system, performing regular maintenance is vital to extending the life of your system and keeping it running as efficiently as possible.

By making sure your HVAC is in peak performance, you will save money over the course of the summer. In addition to your pre-season tune-up, make sure you regularly change (or clean, if they are reusable) your HVAC’s air filter. This means monthly replacement during peak usage months, depending on your system.

Dirty filters cost more to use, overwork your system, and compromise your indoor air quality. So, after you’ve scheduled your tune-up this week, invest in a few spare filters to be prepared for the summer, set some reminders on your calendar to replace the old filters, and stay cool this summer.
