Have you noticed that your heater isn’t as effective as it should be? Do your monthly heating bills seem too high? If you answered yes to one or both of these questions, there’s a good chance you could be taking better care of your heating system. When your heater is maintained properly and put in the right situation to succeed, the benefits it can provide to your comfort and finances will be unmistakable.
Keep It Maintained
One of the biggest favors you can do your heating system is staying consistent with annual maintenance. The technician handling the maintenance will determine any improvements they can make to the system’s operation. The main goals will be to give you more consistent control of your climate and help you save money on your monthly energy bills. A heater that receives these tune-ups regularly will also have a longer, healthier lifespan while needing far fewer repairs.
Replace Your HVAC Filter
Before your air gets warmed up and circulated through the house, your heater has to pull it through its air filter. The air filter traps all of the pollutants and irritants so they don’t clog up your furnace and contaminate the air you breathe. For everything to keep working smoothly, the air filter needs to be changed out regularly and replaced with a new one.
Minimize Escaped Heat
If your home is allowing a lot of warm air to escape, your heater has to work harder to compensate for it. This is detrimental to its health as well as your monthly bills. One good method of conserving heat is to locate the air leaks in your home and seal them up with caulking. Another good option is to have high-quality insulation installed in your attic to prevent heat from escaping through the roof.
