As HVAC technicians in Burlington, NC know, January is when air systems really heat up. It’s when we get the most snow in NC and historically have the worst ice storms. That means you need to be paying attention to your HVAC system, emphasis on the ‘H’. Here are 3 tips to help you with your furnace.

* Keep Your HVAC Clean

Ensure your HVAC runs smoothly at all times by having it cleaned by professionals at least once a year. While you can probably change your air filter, a technician can actually inspect the entire system for any problems. This also helps you system run more efficiently, which leads to lower utility bills. This keeps more money in your pocket year-round.

* Keep Objects Out

Another good habit is to make sure no objects or obstructions are in your ducts. Blocking a vent with furniture puts a lot of strain on your system and could cause energy bills to go up. Make sure to keep your furniture off those vents to allow the system to run more efficiently.

* Replace Outdated Equipment

If your current system isn’t working as well as it used to, it might be time to replace it with a more energy efficient model. Instead of spending more money for an inefficient machine every month, make that investment for a new installation. It will save you money in the long run.
