This fall, your biggest expenses will come from your home’s HVAC system. But there are ways to ensure your indoor air quality is good and your home stays warm and comfortable without driving up your utility bills. Just be sure to avoid the following costly mistakes:
Changing your settings daily. While it may seem to make sense to change your HVAC system’s temperature settings to accommodate even a slight temperature change, it isn’t recommended to do this every day. It’s still better to stay within a small temperature range because daily changes can put unnecessary stress on your system and make it harder to regulate the proper indoor temperature. Instead of changing the thermostat daily, put on a sweater to keep warm!
Not adjusting your vents. To ensure that your heating and air conditioning system is running efficiently, you’ll need to check to see if the air is circulating where it’s supposed to. There’s no need to keep the vents open in areas that don’t see a lot of human traffic; we suggest closing them instead so that the warm air is pushed toward other rooms that need it more. Just remember not to close too many vents, as this can be counterproductive for your HVAC system.
Not changing your air filter. The HVAC system’s air filter prevents debris and airborne particles from infiltrating your home’s indoor air. After a few months, it will become dirty and clogged and will need to be replaced. Make sure to do this before winter arrives because dirty filters are less effective and can even restrict the amount of air circulating through your home’s interior. When this occurs, your system is forced to work harder and consume more energy.
