Spring has just begun, which means the temperature outside will increase. Getting into the spring mood by gardening and setting up your patio is just a couple of things you should have on your list. As temperatures rise, you want to ensure your HVAC system is working at its highest efficiency. Also, it is essential to keep your thermostat in mind as you adjust to the warmer weather. To guarantee your HVAC system is up-to-date and your thermostat is set correctly, review the following tips:
Adjust your thermostat:
According to the Department of Energy, it highly recommended having your temperature set on or around 78°F during warmer seasons in the Chicagoland area. This will not only keep your house at a comfortable temperature, but it will also save you money. Changing the temperature settings on your thermostat frequently will raise your utility bills drastically.
Replace furnace filter:
Like you should do every month, replace your furnace filter to prevent issues occurring during spring. Putting in a new filter will give your equipment a fresh start for the season, allowing it to work at maximum capacity.
Schedule a maintenance check:
It is the perfect time to have an HVAC technician, like our team at Leith Heating & Cooling HVAC, to come out and ensure your system is working properly. The technician will be able to do any cleaning needed and address minor issues and correct them to prevent further problems.
