Having the furnace and HVAC system will prolong the life of the system, save energy and decrease health risks.
Not maintaining your furnace, whether it is gas or electric, can cause it to run less efficiently, making it work even harder, therefore increasing your monthly energy bills.
Checking the thermostat settings to make sure the system is properly running is also important. Inspecting electrical connections and testing voltage on the system components to prevent any component failure in the future should be done as well. We can also check the system start-up and shutdown controls for proper operations, as well as changing the filter.
After an HVAC service, there are a few steps you can take to keep it running smoothly. Most importantly, is changing the air filter regularly. A clogged air filter will restrict air flow, which can also negatively affect your health through exposure to environmental contaminates.
Another energy savings tip, is using a programmable thermostat. This can save you up to 10 percent on energy bills, if you dial it down seven or eight degrees from the normal temperature setting. There have been a lot of studies that have proven having it serviced and maintained can save up to 30 percent on your energy bills as well.
