Regular HVAC Maintenance

Make sure you check your HVAC filter regularly. During heavy summer use, the filter will likely need to be washed or replaced about once a month. While you’re at it, dust the grates as well. Clean the evaporator coils annually, straightening any bent ones.

Save Electricity and Money

Use your HVAC system’s programmable thermostat to schedule operation for times when you are at your Wildwood home. Efficient use of this handy device can save you close to $200 per year on your utility bills. When your family’s schedule changes, reassess your needs and adjust the programmable thermostat if appropriate.

Keep Cool Air In, Hot Air Out

Prevent leakage of precious cool air by sealing around your home HVAC unit and your ducts’ seams and connections. If the ducts pass through an attic space, consider insulating that too. Sealing and insulation require a certain amount of effort but will be well worthwhile in energy efficiency both summer and winter. It’s recommended to seal around windows, doors and baseboards also or even to replace windows if necessary.

Indoor Air Quality

An HVAC system is worthless if it isn’t filtering out harmful contaminants that can be floating around your home. Your HVAC filter needs to be changed regularly to avoid allergens, dust, dirt, and anything else that may be lurking in your home’s air. Most duct systems in older homes are obsolete, and it’s crucial to find an HVAC expert that can identify antiquated ducts and provide you with the air quality you deserve to live a healthy life.
