The HVAC system is responsible for a significant portion of the annual energy use and cost. When it comes to the HVAC system use, people believe you either have to sacrifice cost, or comfort. Applying a few steps to your routine can help you not have to make a sacrifice, allowing you to be comfortable all year long without it is costing an arm and a leg. Below are a few efficiency tips we at Hal Mechanical would like to share.
Cleaning or Changing HVAC Filters
To increase a more efficient output from your HVAC system, having clean HVAC filters manages the efficiency of the airflow. Especially during climatic extremes, the filters have a tendency to get clogged up, making them necessary to clean or replace every four weeks or so. Filters, by design, are meant to be user-friendly. Whether you have a disposable filter or a re-useable filter, they are easy to repair or clean. HVAC maintenance guide can be checked for instructions if you need assistance.
Air Vent & Register Cleaning
Obstructions should be cleaned from the registers and vents to ensure clean air and ideal airflow. Though you need to be cautious as to avoid damaging electrical connectors, vents are manufactured for simple removal in order to clean sufficiently. Additionally, if your HVAC system features air ducts and they haven’t been cleaned in less than 5 years, ensure you have a professional cleaning to boost the airflow and indoor air quality.
Energy Efficient Fenestration
Windows, entry doors and skylights and other opening featured in your home’s exterior walls are fenestrations. Heat is allowed to pass through by conduction as traditional fenestrations are made with single-pane glass. More output is required from your HVAC system to compensate due to the heat loss during cold days and heat gain during hot days. To help improve your HVAC system’s performance and efficiency, select energy-efficient fenestrations, particularly those that feature double or triple pane glass and insulated frames to replace the conventional applications.
Schedule Routine Professional HVAC Inspections
Make sure to include routine professional maintenance and inspections services from a licensed provider. Leaks, damage and energy consumption problems, alongside other minor issues can be easily discovered and repaired before they escalate and become an unnecessarily high energy consumption and costly repairs.
