HVAC Maintenance Tips To Heat Up Your Valentine’s Day

Love your HVAC unit this Valentine’s Day, because let’s face it – nothing warms your heart quite like a furnace. Here are 5 HVAC maintenance tips to follow.

1. Seal Your Windows [WITH A KISS]

Okay, not really. But there’s nothing like cold drafts and high energy bills to ruin the mood on Valentine’s Day, am I right? If you feel cool drafts inside, be sure there aren’t any gaps around your windows. If there are, make sure to seal air leaks around your windows with caulk or weather stripping. 

2. Commit To Energy Savings

Don’t be afraid of commitment when it comes to your HVAC unit. As things heat up this Valentine’s Day, consider turning the heat down a notch. Not only can this give your HVAC unit a much needed and well-deserved break, but it can also help you save on energy costs. Plus, it’s the perfect opportunity to curl up under the blankets or in front of the fireplace with that special someone.

3. Make Sure Love Is The Only Thing In The Air

Love should be the only thing in the air this Valentine’s Day. That being said, make sure you dust around your home, such as around your vents and registers. When dust and dirt accumulate around your vents, it can greatly reduce airflow, which can also reduce the efficiency of your HVAC unit and increase your energy usage. Not only should you be cleaning around your vents and registers, but you should also be vacuuming your carpets regularly. All of these things can help improve your indoor air quality.

4. Check Out Your Air Filters

Check out the air filters on that furnace! Are they dirty or clogged? If so, it may be time to change them. In fact, you should make sure you’re changing your air filter every 1-3 months. When your air filter gets clogged up with dust, dirt and other particles, it makes it hard for your furnace to push warm air through. This not only can put a strain on your unit, but it can also lead to reduced airflow and higher energy bills.

5. make a reservation for a furnace inspection

Plan ahead and make a reservation – for dinner AND for your furnace inspection this Valentine’s Day. You should plan to have your furnace inspected by a professional at least once a year. This will help ensure everything is running smoothly and safely, and that you will stay comfortable all winter long.
