Your HVAC system creates comfort in your home – it keeps you cool during the hot, humid summer and warm when the temperature turns bitter cold in the winter. But if your HVAC system is not working optimally you could be paying more than you need to in utility bills while your comfort level suffers. Here are some inexpensive ways to improve your HVAC system and enhance its performance.
Install a Smart Thermostat
A smart thermostat will learn your schedule and adjust the temperature levels of your home to provide optimal comfort, while also saving on utility bills. No more extra energy spent heating an empty house or coming home to a freezing cold place.
Purchase an Air Purifier
Air purifiers go above and beyond your regular HVAC filter to capture allergens and airborne particles. There are a variety of inexpensive air cleaners you can purchase to remove impurities and filter pollutants in your home. Those prone to allergies will be able to breathe easier.
Get a Dehumidifier and Humidifier
Using a dehumidifier can help to improve the moisture level of your home during the hotter summer months and remove moisture that leads to mold and mildew. On the other hand, during wintertime, a humidifier is very necessary for adding more moisture back into the air to minimize discomfort from that excessively dry air.
By installing bathroom and kitchen fans, you can help exhaust contaminants and heat from your home. Also, having proper functioning roof vents that circulate air is a must.
Get Your Furnace Maintained
An HVAC technician can optimize the efficiency and performance of your furnace. Getting a yearly inspection can help identify if your system is running at its peak efficiency or if the equipment is working harder than it needs to. They can also give your machine a full cleaning to ensure you get the most bang for your buck.
Regular Duct Cleaning
Duct cleaning can improve your HVAC’s performance and also reduce any health problems. Excess dust, mold, and pet dander can build up in your vents, preventing proper air flow. Also, these items can constantly be released into your home, impacting the health of you and your family. Having your ducts checked regularly can eliminate any particulates and improve the air quality in your home.
