All of us are looking for ways to spend less each month so that we can pay bills, save money, and have some left over to do the things we enjoy.  In Carolina Beach, NC and the greater Wilmington, NC area, that usually means spending time at the beach, on boats, on surfboards, fishing, surfing, and relaxing.  So, the last place you want to invest money unnecessarily is on an HVAC system that is running inefficiently and consuming more energy than it needs to be.  This extra unnecessary expense can be easily avoided. 

Things you can do at home to keep your equipment running smoothly and efficiently:

  • Check filters and be sure they are clean and/or replaced.
  • Keep barriers like rugs, furniture, and drapes away from supply and return vents.
  • Keep outdoor equipment clear of all debris and accumulated dirt that could affect airflow.

Though there are many things you can do at home to be sure of proper airflow, resulting in better functionality and more efficiently running machines, one of the best ways to save money on your HVAC system is to keep it professionally maintained.  With proper maintenance, the parts and components of your heating and cooling systems will be cleaned and checked for any possible failures.  Filters and coils will be cleared of dirt, dust, debris, and mold, and as a result, they will run much more efficiently.  A maintained HVAC system will not have to work as hard to keep your home or business cool in the hotter months and warm in the cooler months.  Efficiently running systems consume less fuel and energy which means less damage to the environment and to your pocketbook.  When your HVAC system is running smoothly and efficiently, the savings on energy consumption come right back to you because you are spending less on every billing cycle.  A well maintained system not only lowers your monthly bill but it will cost you less money in the long run.  Maintenance keeps your unit from wearing down and, as a result, you have to replace it less often.  This results in a lower cost to you because it takes less energy to keep things running and all of your parts and components will last a long time.  Lower costs to you and to the environment.  Win win.
