HVAC systems can get clogged up as they age, resulting in poor performance and more expensive repairs. Here are three great ways to keep your system running smoothly.
Invest in Energy Efficiency
Fenestrations are openings installed on your home’s exterior walls, including windows, entry doors and skylights. Traditional fenestrations are made with single-pane glass and therefore allow heat to pass through by conduction. This leads to heat loss during cold days and heat gain during hot days, requiring more output from your HVAC system to compensate. Choosing energy-efficient fenestrations, particularly those that feature double- or triple-pane glass and insulated frames, can help improve your HVAC system’s performance and efficiency.
Clean the Vents
The vents should likewise be clear of any kind obstructions. Most vent designs are created to be easily removed for cleaning but be careful when doing so to avoid damaging electrical connectors. If you have a duct system and haven’t had your ducts cleaned for a while, we recommend having them professionally cleaned.
Clean or Replace Your Filter
Clean HVAC filters facilitate faster airflow, allowing a more efficient output from your HVAC system. Filters tend to get clogged up especially during climatic extremes, requiring cleaning or replacing it as often as once a month. The good news is that filters are designed to be user-removable or replaceable. Check your HVAC maintenance guide for instructions. We are here to help.
