Dirty Air Filters Damage Systems
A dirty air filter can substantially increase the cost of running your heater and A/C. When was the last time you changed yours? Check your air filter every month, especially during heavy use periods like winter and summer. If the filter looks dirty after a month, change it. At a minimum, change the air filter every three months to keep dust and dirt from building up in the system, which could lead to expensive repairs or even early system failure. Contact the Westinghouse HVAC experts for even more tips on saving energy while optimizing home comfort.
Alarming Facts About Air Filters
Here’s an alarming statistic from Westinghouse: 50% of homes with central heating and A/C systems don’t get a regular filter change. In fact, 10% have never had a filter replacement. For optimum air quality, you should check your air filter every month, and replace it when it looks dirty or after three months—whichever comes first. For extra protection, install a HEPA grade furnace filter that will remove more particles overall, and also catch the tiniest ones that pass right through regular filters. As Westinghouse HVAC experts, we can recommend products and practices to improve the air quality of your home. Call us for a consultation today.
How to Save Energy by Using Your Thermostat
"How well are you using your programmable thermostat? Think about when your family wakes up, leaves the house and goes to bed. Then, set your thermostat to change temperature at these times. Realize winter savings by programming your thermostat to drop by eight degrees when you’re away and when you’re sleeping. In the summer, increase the temperature by seven degrees when you’re away and by four degrees when you’re sleeping. And never override your thermostat or place it on hold. Turning the temperature way up or down won’t make your system heat or cool faster, but it will make it work overtime and wreak havoc on your energy bills. Ask us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, how to optimize your settings during your next pre-season checkup. It could save you as much as $180 a year. "
