How Efficient Is Your HVAC System?

In the heat of summer in Peachtree City, GA, your power bills can rise as quickly as the thermometer. It’s impossible not to wonder if your HVAC system is as efficient as it could be, or if there is anything you could be doing to save energy (and money). Here are three ways to improve the efficiency of your HVAC system.

Keep Your HVAC System Clean

Routine maintenance is key to getting the most out of your HVAC system. Dirty filters and coils can cause you system to work harder than it should, wasting energy.

While changing your HVAC system’s filter is a quick and easy task that you can take care of on your own, other routine maintenance should be left to the pros. During an annual maintenance visit, a trained technician will clean and lubricate all the vital parts of your air conditioner.

Consider a Smart Thermostat

If you are keeping your thermostat at the same temperature whether you’re home or not, you’re wasting energy. While you could just turn up the temperature every time you leave, it’s easy to forget to do this. A smart thermostat takes your memory out of the equation and keeps your house at the right temperature automatically.

Smart thermostats can be programmed to raise or lower the temperature depending on the time of day. They can be also learn your habits and change the temperature on their own. They also have Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing you to change the temperature setting from your smartphone wherever you are.

Upgrade Your System

If your system is more than 10 years old, it’s less efficient than air conditioners produced today. While an upgrade may be a large up-front expense, it can save you money every month over the life of the system.

If your system needs maintenance or it’s time to upgrade, call Trinity Air Inc. Heating & Air Conditioning. We have the systems and know-how to keep your air conditioner running as efficiently as possible all summer.
