Maintaining Your HVAC System

Minnesotans are no strangers to the brutally bitter cold temperatures in the autumn and winter. Even when the temperatures are mild, it’s essential to have a properly functioning HVAC system year-round. While routine maintenance is crucial, there are easy steps you can take to properly maintain your system.

Regularly inspecting and cleaning your HVAC system will keep it working efficiently. Talk to your HVAC specialist about how often you should change out your furnace and air filters.

Stay vigilant and clean your vents, filters, air exchangers, and fireplace at the first sign of dust accumulation. You should also do this for any air exchangers and commercial refrigeration you use in your commercial property. This will maintain your business’s or home’s air quality, maximize airflow, and prevent your system from overworking. Keep the area surrounding your outdoor unit and make-up air system free of debris.

It’s essential to schedule HVAC maintenance before winter and summer arrive. Having a specialist inspect your entire system can reduce the chances of an emergency, as well as the need for subsequent repairs. An HVAC specialist can also make recommendations on the best products for your home or commercial property.

Finance & Home Comfort Tips

How do you stay comfortable in your home or business year-round without increasing your energy bills? By taking a couple of extra steps, you can stay cool or warm without paying sky-high bills or worrying about your system breaking down.

Maintaining a properly sealed home will prevent air from leaking into and out of your home. The more air that escapes or enters your property, the harder your HVAC system has to work to produce the desired effects. If you constantly need to adjust your thermostat because you don’t feel warm or cool enough, there’s a good chance that there’s an air leak somewhere. Calking your windows and weatherstripping your doors are quick fixes to air leaks. You can also weatherstrip the bottom of your walk-in freezer or commercial refrigerator.

Keep your interior doors open to improve airflow. Try covering your windows with blinds and weather curtains to contain more air inside. Area rugs can also reduce the need to turn up the thermostat. Consider turning back your thermostat when you’re not at home or in the middle of the night. Systems that run around-the-clock rack up higher energy bills.
