As the seasons change, ensuring your home is ready for the temperatures ahead is essential. Whether preparing for the sweltering heat of summer or the frigid cold of winter, heating and cooling systems in good working order can save on energy bills and keep you comfortable year-round.
Get Summer Ready with Efficient Air Conditioning
As the temperature rises during summer, many people look for ways to stay cool and comfortable indoors. An efficient air conditioning system is one of the most effective ways to beat the heat.
It lets you focus on enjoying the season rather than feeling hot and sticky. But is your cooling system ready for those hot summer days? Here are some tips for getting summer ready:
Tip 1: Replace or clean filters
Filters can become clogged with dust, dirt, and other pollutants, which can reduce the airflow and cause the unit to work harder than it needs to. It’s necessary to clean or replace your air conditioner filters regularly to avoid any such issues.
Tip 2: Check for leaks or obstructions
Leaks can cause the refrigerant to escape, reducing the system’s cooling capacity and increasing energy consumption. Obstructions can impede air flow and reduce the unit’s cooling performance. Check that no air is escaping and nothing restricts its performance before summer arrives.
Tip 3: Remove Dust from the Coils & Condenser
Dust accumulation on the coils and condenser of your air conditioning unit can significantly reduce its efficiency and performance. The coils and condenser are responsible for removing heat from the air and releasing it outside. They cannot do their job correctly when covered with dust and debris.
Get Ready for Winter with Well Maintained Heating
Winter can be challenging, and you must prepare to stay warm and comfortable throughout the colder months, especially when living in Melbourne. One of the most important preparations for winter is ensuring your heating system is well-maintained and in good working condition. Here are some tips to get ready for winter with well-maintained heating:
Tip 1: Change air filters
Our heating system’s air filters are essential for keeping your indoor air clean and your system functioning correctly. Dirty filters can cause your system to work harder, increasing energy costs, poor indoor air quality, and even system failure. Change them regularly for efficiency.
Tip 2: Clean ducts and vents
Over time, dust, dirt, and other debris can accumulate in your heating system’s ducts and vents, reducing airflow and efficiency. Have your ducts and vents cleaned by a professional technician to ensure they are free of debris and functioning correctly.
Tip 3: Upgrade to a programmable thermostat
A programmable thermostat can help you save energy and money by automatically adjusting your heating system’s temperature when you’re away or asleep. Consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat if you don’t already have one.
