- Have your HVAC system serviced seasonally: Primarily Fall and Spring.
- Make sure you have a clean filter monthly and change it when it's dirty. Always have several on hand but DO NOT store combustible material in your furnace closet.
- Consider a digital set back programmable thermostat. You can save energy by programming the temperature set point where the system doesn't run so much while your away.
