Heating and cooling your Pasco, Hernando, Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties Florida home can cost a fortune if your HVAC system isn’t properly maintained. There are many things you can do to improve efficiency, saving you a substantial amount of money each month on energy bills. At Cool Quest Heating & Air Conditioning, we specialize in maintenance, repair and installation of HVAC systems in the Pasco, Hernando, Hillsborough and Pinellas Florida area. With more than 20 years of experience under our belt, we want to share our knowledge with you on how to save money and improve efficiency – here are a few tips.
Change filters. While this is something almost every homeowner knows to do, it’s a task that often gets put off – and then forgotten. Dust build up not only makes your HVAC system work harder, it can lead to problems or even failure. Check your filters every month, and replace them when needed, at least every 2 months.
Have your system “tuned up.” HVAC systems in your Pasco, Hernando, Hillsborough and Pinellas Florida homes need a tune up, just as your car does on occasion to keep running smoothly. At least once per year, have Cool Quest HVAC contractors inspect your system to ensure that everything is in working order. It’s a good idea to have maintenance performed prior to the peak cooling and heating seasons.
Ensure that ducts are properly sealed. Out of sight, out of mind – that’s what often happens with duct work. Since you don’t often see it, your duct work may have cracks, holes or loose connections. Make sure all seams and connections are tightly sealed using the proper tape or sealant from Cool Quest technicians, avoid duct tape! Don’t let your money blow away!
Consider a programmable thermostat. Designed so that you can set your thermostat to a certain temperature at specific times of the day or night even if you are away, a programmable thermostat can reduce your energy costs significantly.
Proper insulation, caulking around windows and doors, and closing off the vents in rooms that are not frequently used can also help you save on energy costs.
