5 Ways to Help Improve HVAC Efficiency

Improving your HVAC efficiency could make a big difference in your energy bill and have a positive impact on you and your home. Royal Heating & Air is the best heating and cooling company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we have a lot of experience in HVAC operations. We have some great tips for you today on how to improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. Read on to learn more!

1) Regular Maintenance

Your HVAC system works hard year-round. Make sure everything is still in good condition by scheduling regular maintenance checks with your local HVAC company. It's a good idea to have maintenance performed on your units every spring and every fall before the major turn in temperature. Another indication that it is time for a professional HVAC technician to pay you a visit is if the unit is making a strange sound or giving off a bad odor.

2) Keep Clean

Air conditioning units and furnaces can collect dust, dirt, and debris over their lifetime. It's important to make sure they are regularly cleaned so they can operate as efficiently as possible. It's also possible for coils to accumulate rust and other harmful materials if not regularly cleaned and maintained.

Keeping your home as clean as possible is also helpful to the efficiency of your HVAC system. Be sure to regularly dust, vacuum, and clean out vents to ensure there are no blockages inhibiting airflow and making the system work harder.

3) Change Filters

Filters have a very limited lifespan. Some last six months while others last for only one. Make sure you know how often your filter should be changed, and have backups ready to replace when necessary. If a filter gets overloaded with dust, pet hair, and other debris, it cannot filter air efficiently and will put a strain on your HVAC system.

4) Energy Efficient Windows

It's no secret that windows can let out a lot of heat or cool air, depending on the season. Thinking about sitting next to a window in the winter makes us feel chilly enough to want a cozy blanket and hot cocoa. Installing energy-efficient, double-paned windows can help solve this issue. These windows help reduce the amount of hot/cool air that can escape through the windowpane, allowing your HVAC system to take a break more often during the day.

5) Custom Ductwork

If you are remodeling or building a new home, now is the perfect time to help promote efficient airflow through the HVAC system by hiring a professional HVAC company to install custom ductwork. Custom sheet metal fabrication can ensure your ductwork works with the flow of your home rather than against it. It can also limit leaks and inefficient spots that can often happen with standard air ducts. Call Royal Heating & Air to get a quote and add us to your team!
