Energy Saving HVAC Tips For Earth Day

Updated August 2023

During the hottest and coldest months of the year, your HVAC system could be using up quite a bit of energy. Luckily, there are some simple steps that you can take to improve the efficiency of your HVAC system and potentially reduce your energy bills by a significant amount. There’s no better occasion to reduce your carbon footprint than for Earth Day on April 22.

Clean and Service the System

One of the best things that you can do for your HVAC system is to have it regularly cleaned and serviced by a technician. Even though most modern HVAC systems are designed to be as efficient as possible, small issues can pop up over the years. Your HVAC tech will be able to take care of those small issues before they become major problems. They can carry out tasks such as cleaning the coils, testing the accuracy of the thermostat, and inspecting the ducts for any signs of damage. At Murphy Company Heating & Cooling, we also offer affordable duct cleaning services that will improve the efficiency of the system and your home’s air quality.

Regularly Replace the Filters

If you want your HVAC system to work at maximum efficiency, then you need to regularly replace the filters. A high-quality filter should last for at least a few months, but you might need to change them more often if you live in an area with quite a bit of dust or pollen. Those who have one or more pets will probably need to change the filters more often as well. You should also make sure that your house is properly sealed so that you don’t let in extra contaminants and allergens.
