Many have heard the term, "Winterization" but don’t truly understand what it means. Winterization is process of protecting your HVAC unit for when the warm summer air fades and introduces the new cool winter air. There a few factors that go into properly Winterizing a HVAC Unit and they hold long term value for your wallet. The first and most important thing to take into consideration is thinking ahead of time and taking these preventative measures before the cold hits.
One of the first steps is checking your HVAC’s air conditioning vents. You’ll want to make sure each of these vents is shut and sealed for winter. This will eliminate drafts throughout the house and improve your homes heating efficiency, saving you money on utilities. This will also improve the longevity of your HVAC equipment, even though these units are durable, there are many small components that make them up and you’ll want to do everything you can to keep all parts working efficiently to avoid costly repairs.
When you go to shut your air conditioning vents, check for leaves and other debris that you can clean off these units. This not only improves the look of the HVAC unit aesthetically, but it can prevent clogs, rust and other damage that can shorten the life span of your HVAC unit. You can save more money on your utility bill by cutting the power supply to it. Assuming you’re in for a cold winter, why not go ahead and cut the air conditioning off to save your family some money through the holidays?
These are just a few simple steps anyone can take to save some money and it can go a long way.
