A main source of concern for many people regarding utility bills is their HVAC systems and the costs associated with running them. First of all, it’s important that you always make sure your system is in top working order – once each year, you need to make an appointment to have EC&S perform a routine check-up and perform some preventive maintenance on your furnace and air conditioner. One of our certified technicians will also be able to check filters and your ventilation ducts for leaks or other issues. If your system is more than 10 years old, you may want to consider a replacement with a state of the art, energy-efficient system. By replacing inefficient, outdated systems with new ones can save you hundreds of dollars each year.
When you are running maintenance checks on your filters and your system, be sure that you mark on your calendar reminders to change that filter; during seasons of heavy use, you should normally switch the dirty filter in your system for a clean one about once per month. During seasons of lighter use, normally a change every other month is sufficient. Make sure the areas around your outdoor AC unit and your furnace are clear and free of debris, dust and dirt for maximum air flow as well.
When it comes to saving money on your energy bills, especially on your HVAC costs, remember the most important things you can do is have an expert in Lancaster, PA heating and cooling from EC&S come out once per year for an inspection and to replace your outdated, inefficient furnace and air conditioner with an energy-efficient, new one if warranted.
