Winter Tips for Heating and AC Maintenance To keep your Heating Costs Down

Unbeknownst to some, winter in Southwest Florida can get a bit nippy.

so you might find yourself snuggling up to your heating system more often. But all that warmth doesn't come cheap - your electricity bills can skyrocket if you're using your heater nonstop. Fear not, dear reader, because we have some tricks up our sleeves to help your heating unit run smoothly and efficiently all winter long.

Tips to Keep your Heating costs down

Schedule a professional tune-up

With Priority Air Conditioning, you don't need to worry, we won't tune your heater until it's singing "Let it Snow" at the top of its lungs (although that would be pretty cool). During a tune-up, one of our expert technicians will give your heating appliance a thorough cleaning, make adjustments to improve its performance, and inspect its parts for any issues. This will not only benefit your appliance and household, but it could also save you some dough on energy costs.

Replace the air filter in your system.

Imagine your air filter as a bouncer at a trendy club - it keeps unwanted particles out. But if the filter becomes clogged with contaminant particles, it's like having a bouncer who's had one too many drinks. The airflow gets restricted, and your heating unit has to work extra hard to do its job. Avoid this situation by replacing the filter at the start of winter and every other month throughout the season.

Schedule a duct cleaning.

Over time, your air ducts can accumulate contaminants like dust, dirt, mold, pollen, and random debris (we're looking at you, sock under the couch). The dirtier the ducts become, the harder your heating system has to work to push air through during the winter. By having your air ducts cleaned every two or three years, you'll give your heating unit clear pathways to circulate air and ensure it's running at peak efficiency.

At Priority Air conditioning, we're a dependable part of the Cape Coral and surrounding communities. In addition to heating services, we also offer cooling, insulation, indoor air quality, and ductwork services for residential and commercial clients.
