During the harsh winter months, your heating system works hard to keep you warm and comfortable. However, if you want to experience the best comfort this season, you may want to consider going the extra mile and showing some TLC to your HVAC system for better performance. This will not only ensure comfortable interiors in your home, but also improve efficiency, increase lifespan, and reduce utility bills. In this article, we will share with you some tips and ideas that will help keep your HVAC system in the GTA or Durham home working efficiently, ensuring you enjoy a wonderful holiday season.

Adjust Your Temperature Setting

During the winter season, make sure to adjust the thermostat setting to an optimum level. Remember, turning the thermostat up too high will not make your home warmer any faster, rather it will cost you more and put extra strain on your heating system. 

HVAC system design is based on maintaining a temperature of 72°F, however many people find it comfortable maintaining their home between 68°F  and 72°F.

If you haven’t yet, get a smart thermostat to make it convenient for you to adjust the temperature settings and provide greater efficiency.

Change The Filters

Make sure to change the air filter of your HVAC system regularly. The filter is an important component of your system that captures and removes debris in the air, and prevents it from entering your HVAC system. A dirty air filter will reduce the airflow and minimize the efficiency of the system. 

Ideally, you should replace your filter every one to three months to avoid build-up of dust and grime and to keep your system working efficiently. Changing the air filter also improves the air quality of your home, and keeps you and your family healthy throughout the season.

Check The Vents

You also need to inspect your vents and make sure they are open, clean, and unclogged. Additionally, ensure that the vents are not obstructed by any decoration or furniture, which can reduce the warm air that enters your house and make your system work extra hard during winter.

Clear The Surrounding Space

Make sure that the space around your HVAC system is unobstructed. The area surrounding your heating system needs to be kept clutter-free and clean, as it can be a fire hazard otherwise. Make sure, there are no boxes or stuff that can easily melt or catch fire in case they are too close to the system.
