Crisp fall weather (and brutal Denver winters) are on the way. Is your heat pump or furnace ready? Here are three fall maintenance tasks to take care of now to improve energy efficiency.
What Should We Do in Fall to Maintain Our Denver Home’s Energy Efficiency
As a homeowner, you are responsible for your own energy consumption—and your own wallet. Here, we’ll discuss three ways you can save money on your utility bills and conserve energy from your HVAC unit this fall.
Change your air filter.
The easiest way to lower your heating bill? Change your air filters. Every three months, you should plan to replace your air filters throughout the home. If you don’t turn on your HVAC unit in the summer or you use it less frequently, you should still plan to change the filters before the start of a new season—or when you plan to turn on the heat!
Adjust your ceiling fans.
Another way to improve energy efficiency is to adjust the direction of your ceiling fans in fall. During winter, all ceiling fans should turn clockwise to disperse heat that has risen. In the summer, all ceiling fans should turn counter-clockwise. This will give your HVAC system a break and keep you more comfortable all winter long.
Schedule a tune-up.
It’s also recommended that you schedule a regular tune-up of your HVAC system—whether its a heat pump or a furnace—before you turn it on for the season. Regular maintenance will extend the life of your unit and help keep your repair costs low. Why? Because our technicians will be able to investigate and solve problems with your unit before they become major issues. (This will cost less in the long run—trust us, we’ve run the numbers!).
