1. Regular System Checks:

First things first, consistent checks of your heating system can prevent big problems. A routine scan every few months can identify small issues before they escalate. Change your filters quarterly or as recommended by your system’s manufacturer to keep your unit running smoothly.

2. Protect Your Outdoor Units

Outdoor units are prone to damage from the elements and debris, reducing their efficiency. Use protective covers and periodically clean the area around outdoor units to ensure they work optimally.

3. Unblock Your Vents

You might be surprised how often air vents get blocked by furniture, curtains or rugs. A simple tip is to ensure your vents are unobstructed for even air circulation. Unblock all vents and grills around the house for a consistent, efficient heating system.

4. Thermostat Management

A programmable thermostat can save a significant amount of energy by adjusting the temperature based on when you’re home or away. During winter, keep your thermostat at the lowest comfortable setting, and in summer, set it as high as comfortably possible.

5. Professional Tune-Ups

Despite your DIY efforts, it’s essential to consider professional HVAC tune-ups. An expert can spot system weaknesses that could, if neglected, reduce the lifespan of your HVAC. Airways Mechanical offers exceptional HVAC services that resolve any issues your system might be facing.

Knowing how to maintain your HVAC system is a beneficial skill for any homeowner. With these tips, you can extend your HVAC’s lifespan, save costs, and keep your home comfortable. Remember, when DIY efforts are not enough, or if you’re uncomfortable performing a certain task, seek professional help.
