Considering the fact that up to half of the energy used in a home goes toward heating and cooling the interior space, it is smart to make sound decisions regarding your Columbus heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system.   Heating and cooling with an HVAC system can become a comfortable investment when it is done efficiently.  Below are some tips to make your HVAC system more efficient.

Regularly Maintain HVAC Equipment

Annual tune-ups of heating and cooling systems can easily improve HVAC system efficiency. Some of these steps include:

  • Ensure outdoor unit has proper ventilation, is free of debris or foliage growth, and is located in the shade
  • Check thermostat settings for comfort while home and to save energy while away
  • Tighten electrical connections and measure voltage and currents on motors
  • Lubricate all moving parts
  • Inspect and clean out the condensate drain on central air conditioning units
  • Check controls of the system for proper operation

Change Air Filters

Many air filters should be changed every three months, but some should be changed as often as every month.  Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation as well as simple common sense by checking the filters frequently during high-usage times and replacing as necessary.

Install a Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat can control how hot or cold a home is every hour of every day within a week. During the summer they can be set to higher settings while residents are away on vacation, and during winter they can be set to lower settings while residents are away at work or school.  This is a great way to save on energy costs throughout the year, as keeping a more consistent house temperature also helps the HVAC system to run more smoothly.

Install ENERGY STAR® Certified Equipment

When an HVAC system is more than ten years old, or if it no longer works properly it is probably time for a replacement.  Prior to replacing an entire HVAC system, it is prudent to check for air leaks in ducts, which can be a major cause for heating and cooling issues.  If it is determined that it is time for a professional to come in and install a new HVAC system, the savings in energy will be quite dramatic indeed.
