There’s a certain level of obsession that people have whenever they buy something brand new. If that brand new thing is a heating and air conditioning system, consumers often make sure they’re running it at peak energy performance.
When you have a new AC unit installed from M&M Heating & Air Conditioning Service Co. and you’re wondering how to make the best of it, here are the best tips from HVAC experts.
Leave It Alone
You’re excited about your new heating and air conditioning and you want to make sure it’s running smoothly for as long as possible. One of the most common mistakes owners make is messing around with the thermostat settings too much and too often. Making frequent adjustments causes your system to use more energy than usual, racking up your utility costs for minor changes.
Lessen Its Load
Your heating and air conditioning unit should be able to take a lot of abuse before showing signs of early wear and tear, but don’t take it as a challenge. The Department of Energy doesn’t recommend turning off your air conditioner whenever you leave the house (powering up from the “off” state uses more energy than leaving it continuously running) but do allow it to rest. You can do so by raising the temperature to a warmer level, but not too warm that it would take hours to cool down your home when you return.
Love Your System
Keeping your heating and air conditioning system clean should always be on your monthly or bi-monthly to-do list. Additionally, regular tune-ups and inspections will make sure your AC runs perfectly for longer than its lifetime.
