You can finally drive with the windows down, go outdoors without sweating buckets, and get relief from aggravating allergy symptoms thanks to the more favorable autumn weather. But just because cooler weather is approaching for Sarasota, Florida, residents doesn’t mean that you need to stop paying attention to your HVAC system. By properly caring for your HVAC system and making smart choices, you’ll enjoy energy and HVAC efficiency throughout the cooler seasons.

Seasonal Maintenance

If you haven’t yet made a habit of seasonal HVAC maintenance, there is no better time to get started than right now. At the end of a hot and humid summer, your HVAC system needs a checkup to make sure that it’s prepared to take on the cooler temperatures. After you’ve scheduled seasonal maintenance, a certified HVAC technician will come to your home, clean your system, search for any potential issues, and make necessary repairs. Preventive maintenance keeps your system in top working order, which helps you to eliminate energy waste and wear and tear on your system.

Temperature Adjustment

Once it gets cold, we understand the temptation to blast that heater and get your home all nice and toasty. However, that may not be the best course of action if you want to maintain high energy efficiency. Try to keep your thermostat programming as close to the outdoor temperature as possible. The closer the indoor temperature is to the temperature outside, the more efficiently the HVAC system will perform, and the more money you’ll save. Don’t sacrifice comfort, just make wise choices. Throw on some warm clothes, use a blanket, and take advantage of the natural sunlight, for example, for inexpensive ways to add warmth to your home.

The key to a relaxing fall and winter is an efficient HVAC system. With it comes to comfort in your home and peace of mind in knowing that while you’re staying warm, you’re also saving money.
