A Few Tips to Keep Your Furnace & A/C Running Efficiently

By Dave Trosdahl on September 8th, 2007

With winter quickly approaching, here are a few tips to help you keep your heating and cooling system running at its most efficient level:

  • Keep your thermostat at a constant temperature, even when no one is home.
  • Change the pleated filters inside your furnace every month or as required.
  • If you have an electronic filter, keep it clean. When dirty, it can create ozone and irritate allergies.
  • Check the outside condensing system regularly for any grass clippings or leaves stuck to the coil.
  • Have the system serviced every spring & fall by a reputable HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) service company.

Following these simple steps should help keep your home more comfortable and your utility bills lower.

By asking enough questions and really studying, it is true that nearly anyone can accomplish anything. This is true in the workplace and it is true at home. Often times though, upon completing the task the do-it-yourself-er (or the spouse or co-worker) will say something like; “We should have just hired someone to do it.”

In The HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) world this is especially true. A do-it-yourself (DIY) approach is seldom worth the hassle of learning what installers study for 2 years in college and most importantly gain in the workplace.

In his article “Air Conditioning and Heat Installation Best Left to Experts” , Rolan Jefferson writes; “While just about anyone can fasten parts into place, not only is the efficiency in jeopardy, a faulty air conditioning and heating installation can also put the people in danger.”
