Has your home been feeling stuffy recently? Or maybe your HVAC system isn’t quite cooling off your space like it used to. Here are three steps you can take to increase the airflow in your Greenville, SC home almost immediately.
Change Your Air Filter
Although you may aim to change your air filter regularly, the months can sometimes get ahead of us. Before long, your air filter is long overdue for a change. Although it may seem like a simple task, it is an especially important one.
A dirty, clogged air filter can make your system work far harder than it needs to, decreasing the overall life of your system. Additionally, a dirty filter can make a system run inefficiently, causing your monthly energy bill to skyrocket.
Turn On Your Fan
Turning on the ceiling fans in your home help air circulate within your home, allowing you to feel cooler as the air passes over your skin. Moreover, fans can help you save money by not having to run your HVAC system quite so much.
The cooling effect from fans, mean you can boost your thermostat by up to four degrees while maintaining the same overall comfort level in the home. As a result, this means a cooler family in the summer without having high energy bills to show for it.
Schedule HVAC Maintenance
Last but certainly not least, if you haven’t had your HVAC system tuned up this season, it is time to do so. An annual tune-up can get your system back to operating as efficiently as possible. When your system isn’t running properly, you’re going to quickly notice a difference in the way it cools or warms your home, and avoiding the problem will only lead to further issues down the line.
