When the weather is cool during the winter months, your heating system is a necessity. No one wants to worry about their heating system not operating to its full potential or needing heating system repairs. To help you improve the efficiency of your heating system we at Air Supply Air Conditioning & Heating would like to share some recommendations.
Clean or Replace Home Air Filter
The HVAC system needs to the air filters, in order to keep the dust, dirt, and debris from out of the system and your home. Filters become clogged quickly as they capture these offending particles with every air cycle. Depending on the type of filter, every 1 to 3 months, the air filters need to be replaced or cleaned, depending on the type of filter. The unit is forced to work harder to warm your home should the filters are over encumbered. In addition to accelerating the wear and tear your heating system consume more energy than necessary it leads to reduced efficiency and even more repairs when this becomes the case.
Being one of the primary components of the HVAC system in general, the ductwork delivers the heated air from your heating appliance and distributes it throughout your home. Especially if the home feels comfy and warm, you probably give little though to the ductwork. Holes, cracks, as well as bad seals, the ductwork can become afflicted with damage. You may need metal tape or mastic sealant to seal the leaky ducts since homes can lose 20% to 30% of the energy generated by the HVAC system due to leaky ducts.
Thermostat Settings in Winter
For heating efficiency in most homes, the thermostat is the key. You can save 10% on your utility bill when you turn the thermostat back about 7-10 degrees at night during the time you sleep and while you are away from more than 2 hours. To significantly improve the heating system efficiency, by upgrading the thermostat, though manual thermostats can be challenging to monitor the thermostat.
