Earth Day: Ways to Help the Planet and Your Home
Earth Day is a time to show our support for initiatives aimed to keep our planet healthy and safe. There are many ways you can make changes around your home that will increase your home comfort and help the planet in the process.
Heating or cooling your home while no one is there creates a financial burden for homeowners and can put a strain on the planet. By installing a smart thermostat, you can program your HVAC system to turn on and off at predetermined times. This will ensure that your house will be comfortable for your arrival home without unnecessarily running the HVAC system all day.
Change Your Air Filter
A dirty or clogged filter restricts airflow in your HVAC system, making it work harder and increase its energy consumption. Ensuring your filter is clean will improve your unit’s efficiency, thus helping the planet and your wallet. Make sure you check your filter monthly and replace as needed according to your unit’s manufacturer specifications.
Schedule Annual HVAC Maintenance
Use Earth Day as a reminder to schedule your annual air conditioning maintenance. Furnaces and air conditioners use a lot of energy to operate and require proper care to keep them energy efficient. Professional heating and air conditioning maintenance will help your unit run at peak efficiency and prevent it from using more energy than required to run.
