How do you get the most out of your HVAC this summer? Here’s what you need to know to keep your HVAC costs down while also keeping your home the optimal temperature:
- Change Your Filter
If it seems like your HVAC unit isn’t running as well as it used to, go ahead and change the filter. Most filters should be changed every 90 days and going longer between replacements can cause issues with your HVAC system working effectively.
- Turn Up the Temp When You’re Not Home
When you aren’t home, turn up the temp! This doesn’t just save you money on electricity bills, it also lengthens the life of your HVAC system. If you have trouble remembering to turn your HVAC up before you leave, Gilman Cooling and Heating can help you to install a programmable thermostat or even a thermostat that you can control via bluetooth from your phone while you are out and about!
- Give Your HVAC Unit Some Extra Assistance
Your HVAC unit is likely putting in a lot of hours of hard work in these hot summer months! Help your HVAC system out with ceiling fans and blinds. Keeping the blinds down will help keep cool air in and hot air out. Additionally, ceiling fans can prevent hot air from rising and kicking on your HVAC system prematurely.
- Schedule A Maintenance Check
If you haven’t had your yearly HVAC maintenance check from Gilman Cooling and Heating, it’s not too late to schedule an appointment! Our trusted technicians can identify any issues that may be causing your HVAC unit to slow down or not work as effectively. Additionally, you can ask the technician for more HVAC tips while they are over! They’ll likely have some specific tips for your individual situation and home.
- Replace Old HVAC Systems
It’s not worth suffering through the summer heat with no AC or a faulty HVAC system. If your system is getting old or you’ve spent years replacing parts for inconsistent results, it’s likely time to buy a new HVAC system. Gilman Cooling and Heating can help you to choose the best HVAC system for your home size and needs and seamlessly install your system in no time.
