How HVAC Maintenance Decreases Energy Usage
If you’re like most homeowners in Kinston, North Carolina, your energy consumption increases as summertime temperatures rise. Rather than letting your utility bills spiral out of control, take control over your energy consumption with a smart approach to air conditioner use. Discover how scheduling regular HVAC maintenance can decrease your energy usage during the summer and all year long.
Basic Maintenance Increases Efficiency
Most HVAC systems last for at least ten years, but they’ll drive up your energy consumption over the course of their lifespan if you don’t have them serviced regularly. At J & J Mechanical, our HVAC technicians are well-versed in checking refrigerant levels, cleaning evaporator and condenser coils, and inspecting blower parts. When all of your HVAC system’s components operate at peak performance, you can easily keep energy usage down.
Fresh Air Filters Help With Airflow
One of the easiest ways to lower energy consumption is to change the HVAC system’s air filter once a month. Since air filters can trap a significant amount of dirt and dust over the course of a month, a fresh filter ensures unobstructed airflow and improves HVAC efficiency. Our technicians can show you how to keep up the routine throughout the year.
Smart Thermostat Settings Save Energy
If you’ve invested in a programmable or smart thermostat, you have the potential to take your energy savings to the next level. If you don’t set the thermostat correctly, however, you might never achieve the energy savings you want. During a preventive maintenance session, our technicians can recommend the ideal thermostat settings for your home to keep you cool and comfortable without wasting energy.
Early Detection Prevents Major Energy Loss
Over time, minor HVAC issues can lead to substantial energy loss. With a regular maintenance plan in place, our technicians can detect small problems early before they cause major spikes in energy consumption.
