Look, we get it. Things are still pretty steamy out there during the days. The last thing on your mind at noon right now is your heating system. What about at night, though? Or in the early morning. When the sun is down, we’re sure that you’ve noticed things are cooling down out there. And that means it is really only a matter of time—a short amount of time, at that—before you start running your heating system once more.
When that time comes, are you sure that your heater will step up to the plate and knock it out of the part? Are you worried that it might strike out when it comes to energy efficiency? Just because we don’t use our heaters to the same extent that they do in, say, Vermont or Minnesota, is no reason to settle for subpar heating efficiency. When it comes to heater efficiency, you can take control by following the advice of our HVAC professionals in St. Charles, MO.
Replace Your Outdated Thermostat
Too many homeowners are content to regulate temperatures in their homes with outdated technology. You don’t need to be a tech enthusiast to start using a better thermostat to boost efficiency in your home, though. If you’re using a very basic manual thermostat, simply upgrading to a programmable model is going to make some progress toward more efficient heating.
If you really want to take your thermostat to the next level, get in touch with our team to see if your HVAC system is compatible with modern smart thermostat technology. With remote system access, energy efficiency reports, learning capabilities, and more, a smart thermostat can be your gateway to huge heating (and cooling) savings.
Change Your Air Filter
If you’re not changing the standard air filter in your HVAC system as needed, you are doing yourself a major disservice. This is one of, if not the, simplest and most affordable ways in which you can boost overall energy efficiency when heating and cooling your home.
It’s a pretty simple concept to understand. The dirtier the air filter in your forced air heating system, the harder that system is going to have to work to push heated air throughout your home. By keeping a fresh filter in your HVAC system, you are actually going to be able to live more comfortably while saving energy and money in the process. That’s a pretty good deal if you ask us.
Schedule Routine Maintenance
There is no getting around this one. If you are serious about getting the most efficient performance possible out of your HVAC system, then routine maintenance is an absolute must. There is simply no better way to ensure that the system is functioning at peak performance levels.
With routine maintenance, you set your system up for success so that it not only works efficiently, but also as reliably as possible. Contact a member of our team today to discuss the finer points of our maintenance program.
