Change Furnace Filters Regularly

A furnace filter is designed to trap contaminants in your air, such as dust, debris, and animal dander. When a filter becomes too dirty, it can make your furnace work harder, limit airflow, increase your energy bills, and even cause your system to breakdown. We recommend replacing your furnace filters at least four times a year.

You may want to consider installing a high-efficiency, allergy-friendly filter, which will last longer and provide improved filtration. Our HVAC technicians are available to advise you on the best filter for your furnace. Call us today to schedule your seasonal maintenance visit.

Be Intentional About Your Thermostat Setting

Most people are unaware of how much they can save by simply adjusting their thermostat to a few degrees higher or lower. Lowering the thermostat by one degree when using the furnace, or raising it by one degree when using the air conditioner, can save up to three percent on your utility bills. Ceiling fans are a great way to make your home feel warmer or cooler so that you can bear to set your thermostat higher or lower. In the summer, the fan will work to help circulate the cool air throughout the room. Conversely, in the winter, the fan operates in reverse to push the warm air back down. It’s also helpful in the wintertime to wear layers.

Make sure to manage your temperature setting preferences with a programmable thermostat. If you are not yet experiencing the benefits of a programable thermostat and would like one installed, call us today! We can also walk you through how to get the most out of your thermostat if you’re not really sure how it works.

Replace Aging or Damaged Windows

Installing new windows might be a costly investment initially, but they will save your money in the long run – as much as 15% on your energy bills every year. If your budget doesn't allow for replacing all of your windows, begin replacing them one at a time. Larger windows should be your top concern. You can also check to make sure that your windows and doors are properly sealed and caulked. If not, you can easily replace the seals and re-caulk them to prevent your conditioned air from escaping your home.

Ensure Your Attic Is Adequately Insulated

Did you know that more than 40 percent of your conditioned air may be escaping through your ceilings? When an attic is improperly insulated, the warm or cool air can rise through the ceiling and exit through your roof.

There are several negative effects of inadequate attic insulation, including:

  • Higher energy bills
  • Reduced comfort
  • Increased wear and tear on HVAC system

To keep your home comfortable and your wallet fuller, Strive Heating & Cooling LLC has partnered with Owens Corning – the industry leader in insulation. Our certified technicians can use specialized equipment to add up to 18 inches of blown-in insulation to your attic. The process takes less than two hours. If you think your attic may be improperly insulated, call us today to schedule a free, no-obligation attic insulation consultation. We can also inspect your attic ventilation system to ensure the added insulation does not cause moisture accumulation in your attic.
