Make sure your air filter remains clean! A dirty filter will decrease your air conditioning unit's efficiency,
causing it to use more energy. Avoid this problem by checking your air
filter every month, and changing it approximately every three months.
Use a programmable thermostat! Increase the temperature when the house is empty. When you are home, set
the temperature at 78 degrees for a balance of comfort, energy, and cost savings.
Replace the furnace air filter! Because furnace air filters trap a significant amount of dust, lint, and
debris, they can cause malfunction. By replacing the filter twice a year,
you can ensure the heating system continues to function properly.
Get your heater inspected annually! To ensure your heater runs as efficiently as possible and that you avoid
facing expensive repairs, getting your heating system inspected by a professional.
