Making sure that your HVAC system is as efficient as possible is one of the best ways to keep your Rio Rico, Arizona, home cool and comfortable. Fortunately, there are several easy ways you can boost your HVAC system’s efficiency with minimal cost and effort.
Change Your HVAC Filter
One of the easiest ways to improve your HVAC system’s efficiency is to change out your air filter regularly. When your air filter is clogged, it restricts airflow and puts more strain on your system. By installing a new air filter, you’ll be promoting airflow and enabling your system to function at its optimal capacity.
Clean Your Air Vents
Most people don’t give the air vents in their home a second thought, but they can actually be one of the biggest culprits when it comes to reduced HVAC efficiency. When your air vents are blocked, your system must work considerably harder, just like with a clogged air filter. If your HVAC system is working harder than it should, your home will be less comfortable and your energy bills will be a lot higher.
To boost HVAC performance, walk around your home and clean dirt and debris from your air vents. You may also want to move any furniture that could be covering your vents. Having your ductwork professionally cleaned is also a good idea, as dirty air vents often mean that a large amount of dust and dirt has accumulated in your ductwork.
Schedule a Tune-Up
Calling an HVAC professional for an inspection and tune-up is another way to increase efficiency. During an inspection, your technician will examine every inch of your system and will find any issues that may be interfering with its performance. Your technician will give you recommendations for repairs and may even offer to replace certain parts so your system will work the way it should.
