STAYING COOL

  • Keep air supply outlets and return inlets clear of obstructions.
  • Clear leaves, brush, and dirt as they accumulation on the outside unit.
  • Change the air filter once a month especially during the operating season.
  • Invest in a digital thermostat to program temperatures for your system to follow throughout the day.
  • Make sure the cooled air coming from your air conditioning vents is not obstructed by furniture or draperies.
  • Avoid generating excess heat inside your home. Cook outdoors when possible, turn off lights when not in use and remember computers and other home office equipment also generate heat, turn them off as well when not in use.
  • Use bath and kitchen fans sparsely, they remove cool air from your home in large volumes.
  • Close curtains during the day to avoid excess heat from the sunlight.


STAYING WARM

  • Keep area around furnace clean and unobstructed.
  • Make sure all windows and doors are closed tightly.
  • Close the fireplace damper when not in use.
  • Eliminate drafts by using window stripping and caulking around windows and doors.
  • Open curtains during the day to allow natural heat from the sun to warm your home. Close them at night to insulate against the cold.
  • Be sure to have proper insulation, especially in an older home.
  • Turn down the thermostat at night and add an extra blanket to your bedding.

"Tune up" your heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system with an annual maintenance contract. Even a new ENERGY STAR qualified HVAC system, like a new car, will decline in performance without regular maintenance. A contract automatically ensures that your HVAC contractor will provide "pre-season" tune ups before each cooling and heating season. You save energy and money, and your system may last years longer with a minimal investment in a yearly maintenance plan.


If your cooling or heating system is over 10 years old, you might be surprised to find out just how much more efficient the new systems are. With energy savings of up to 60%, the investment can be financially worthwhile. In fact, the savings will usually pay back the cost several times over the life of the equipment.
