Especially in and around Palm Desert, California, keeping your home cool is an essential part of summertime fun. Finding ways to keep your air conditioning system running smoothly can help you maintain the most comfortable indoor temperatures for yourself and your family. Here are three key strategies for reducing wear and tear on your HVAC system this year.
Upgrade Your Thermostat
If you are still adjusting your thermostat manually every time you want to cool or heat your home, investing in a modern programmable or smart thermostat can save you time and reduce stress on your heating and cooling system. ENERGY STAR recommends smart thermostats as a way to reduce your monthly and annual utility bills while keeping things as comfortable as possible for you and your family.
Replace Your HVAC Filter
Dirty air filters can put added strain on your cooling system by limiting airflow. Over time, these filters may even break down to release debris and particulate materials into your HVAC system. Working with a company that provides air conditioning services will typically provide you with the information you need to choose the right air filters and replace them on a schedule that is right for you.
Schedule Routine Maintenance
The U.S. Department of Energy recommends scheduling regular maintenance for your HVAC system both in the spring and fall. Investing in a maintenance plan from your local HVAC services company will typically allow you to enjoy trouble-free performance and plenty of warning when problems do arise in the future.
