If you've been wanting to save money on your energy costs, it's much simpler than you might think. When the heating or air conditioning system has to work harder to blow the air throughout your home, it's taking up much more electricity than necessary. Also, rooms that aren't receiving as much airflow will not receive the benefit of the filtration that your HVAC system provides.
Keeping your home at the right temperature year-round provides health benefits to everyone and especially to those with breathing troubles and allergies. Gunther's is happy to provide you with simple DIY remedies to help improve the airflow in your home.
Minor Adjustments for Maximum Benefits
The first thing you'll want to check is your air filters. If you haven't replaced them within the last few months, doing so will help the air to flow smoothly and without the HVAC system needing to work overtime to compensate for a dirty or clogged filter. Also, ensure that nothing is blocking your system indoors or outdoors.
While it may seem more attractive to enclose your HVAC equipment, it can interfere with the efficiency of your system. Opening closed off vents also improves the airflow. Using the fan on your system when necessary will help to save your system energy and could even extend its lifespan. While closing off vents to rooms that aren't often used may seem like the best remedy, the HVAC system works harder to push the air beyond the closed vents. These simple tips alone can improve the airflow, reduce your bills, and extend the life of your HVAC system.
