Helpful Tips

With some fine tuning, you can turn any HVAC unit into an energy-efficient home comfort system. Here are few simple tips for proper home maintenance.

HVAC air filter

  • In the winter, set your thermostat as low as is comfortable (as high as is comfortable in summer).
  • Clean or replace filters on furnaces once a month or as needed.
  • Clean warm air registers, baseboard heaters and radiators as needed; make sure they’re not blocked.
  • Make sure areas with windows and doors are completely sealed at all times.
  • Caulk windows to seal air in preventing heat loss and resulting in huge money savings.
  • Bleed trapped air from hot water radiators once or twice a season.
  • Kitchen, bath and other ventilating fans can pull out a houseful of warmed or cooled air. Turn fans off as soon as you are finished.
  • Draperies and shades should be kept open during the heating season to allow sunlight to enter your home and closed during the summer to keep cool.
  • Close any unoccupied rooms, close the register and turn down the thermostat for that room or zone.
  • Select energy-efficient heating and air conditioning equipment. We are able to provide you energy fact sheets for different types, models and designs to help you compare energy usage.
