Getting your home ready for fall can lower your utility bills and help the environment by reducing pollution from fossil fuels. You can also keep your family more comfortable and prevent inconvenient breakdowns and costly repairs. Save energy by adding a humidifier, using a programmable thermostat, and maintaining your HVAC system.
Add a Humidifier
A humidifier can keep dry fall air from irritating your sinuses, causing sore throats, or making allergy or asthma symptoms worse. It can also make your home feel warmer in cold weather and let you save energy by using your heating system less. Preventing dry air can stop cracks from forming in wood floors and furniture as well. Adding a whole-home humidifier to your ductwork can even increase the value of your house and prevent wear on your HVAC system.
Use a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat can turn down your HVAC system automatically when you usually leave for work or go to sleep. It can also return your house to a more comfortable temperature before you return or wake up. You can lower your fall utility bills while keeping yourself and your family members warm. With many programmable thermostats, you can make changes and get convenient updates through your computer or smartphone.
Maintain Your HVAC System
Before you start using your heater in the fall, you should get it checked by an expert. That way, you can avoid costly, uncomfortable problems, conserve energy, and repair any issues before they become more severe. Change your HVAC system’s air filter at least every few months to keep your indoor air quality high and increase airflow. You should also keep leaves away from your system’s outdoor unit.
