Preparing your HVAC System for Winter

hvac repair in greensboro ncFall may be in the air, but it is never too early to begin preparing for winter. As the air drops outside and the temperatures increase inside, there are many ways to ensure your HVAC system is working efficiently while heating your home.  Don’t let your HVAC unit fall short this winter. Instead, check out our helpful tips below to help you prepare your HVAC system for the colder months.

One of the easiest ways to help lower your utility bill is to change your air filter on a monthly basis. From dust to allergens, many things clog your air filter, causing your HVAC to work harder to heat your home.

On one of the cooler mornings in the early winter months, turn on your heat to see if your system properly heats your home in a timely manner. If your heater stops working or it takes too long to heat, you may need to have an HVAC repair in Greensboro, NC before winter is in full effect.

Another way to ensure your HVAC system doesn’t overwork itself is to not have furniture or other items block your vents and fresh air supply. It is also essential to clean your vents for proper air circulation.

Tips to Saving Money on Heating Costs This Winter

hvac repair in greensboro ncWhen it comes to staying warm this holiday season, there are many ways to achieve warmth without using your heater. We have previously mentioned many ideas to keeping warm without using your furnace but there are many more ways that you can try that will save you money on your heating costs this season. Below we list additional tips that will keep you and your wallet warm and cozy.

  • To state the obvious for keeping warm, we suggest investing in warm and comfortable winter clothes to relax in while you are home. Dressing in layers and wearing slippers is a great and affordable way to stay warm inside.
  • While cooking this winter, utilize the heat that is given off from the stove and oven. Homeowners should refrain from using the kitchen fans because they diminish the hot air that was created from baking.
  • Since hot air rises, reversing your ceiling fans will help bring that warm air down for you and your family to enjoy.
  • For homeowners who want to utilize their furnace and heater, we recommend frequently changing your dirty and clogged filters to allow your system to not overwork. When your HVAC system is overworked it can make your electric bill increase tremendously.
