If you own a home or are renting a home, apartment, or condo, your HVAC system may be costing you more money than it should. Older homes and rental properties typically have old and inefficient HVAC systems that require large amounts of energy to deliver an underwhelming amount of warm or cold air. Scheduling an HVAC maintenance appointment can often help your system to become more efficient, but if your HVAC system is more than 10 years old, it’s probably time for a replacement.
While the most prominent benefit of installing a new HVAC system is that your energy bill will be greatly reduced, you’ll also find that installing a new HVAC system provides you with more comfort and flexibility than your old system. The HVAC systems on today’s market are quieter, produce superior air flows, have longer lifespans, increase the value of your property, and minimize your impact on the environment. If you’re thinking about upgrading your HVAC system, our certified HVAC contractors would be more than happy to help you choose, install, and maintain a system that’s perfect for your home or rental property.
If you’ve recently installed a new HVAC system or if you can’t remember the last time that your HVAC system was serviced, it’s probably time to schedule a routine checkup and maintenance appointment. HVAC maintenance appoints are just like routine checkups with your doctor in that they can bring your attention to problems that need to be addressed immediately, and they can also prevent future problems from occurring. There’s nothing worse than losing your air conditioning in the summer and having to make costly, unexpected repairs in order to stay comfortable in your own home. Preventative maintenance is the best way to protect your comfort throughout the year.
You’ll also find that scheduling regular HVAC maintenance will bring down your monthly energy bill. Heating and cooling systems can become less and less efficient as they age, and regular HVAC maintenance will keep your system running at peak efficiency.
Changing the air filter in your home’s HVAC system is one of the easiest ways to make sure that your system is running efficiently. HVAC systems are used heavily throughout the year in Colorado, and your air filter should be changed at least once every three months. If you regularly heat and cool your home, it may be a good idea to change your air filters every 90 days. As your HVAC system works to heat or cool your home, the filter collects dust and debris. Preventing dirty air from filling your home is a huge benefit of modern HVAC systems, but a dirty filter can make your HVAC system work much harder than it needs to in order to heat and cool your home. Moreover, your HVAC system could be damaged if the air filter is left unchanged for long periods of time. If you’re not sure how to change your air filter, no problem! Our HVAC contractors are happy to help you maintain your system, no matter what season it is.
Do you feel a draft? Homes and properties of all kinds can develop leaks over time, and these leaks can allow your conditioned and heated air to escape throughout the day. As the air leaves your home, your HVAC system will have to work much harder to maintain the temperature in your home, which significantly raises your energy bill. Check the areas around your chimney or fireplace, closets, as well as the areas around your windows for noticeable air temperature differences. This is particularly good advice if your property is more than 30 years old, but newer homes can have weak spots that need to be sealed as well.
