As an eco-conscious homeowner, you’re constantly looking for ways to save energy in your Kilgore, Texas, home. If you haven’t scheduled HVAC maintenance recently, however, you could be overlooking an important way to cut household energy consumption. From improving airflow to changing air filters, find out how HVAC maintenance increases energy efficiency.

Replace Air Filters

When you schedule a preventive maintenance appointment with JD’s A/C, one of the first things our technicians do is change your HVAC system’s air filter. This task may seem simple, but replacing a clogged filter can cut your cooling system’s energy consumption by up to 15 percent.

When your air conditioner is running at full speed during the summer months, this can mean big savings. To keep saving money on your energy bill year round, replace the air filter every one to three months.

Improve Airflow

Poor airflow and inconsistent indoor temperatures are clear signs that your cooling system isn’t running as efficiently as it should. While an air filter change can help boost airflow, you need professional maintenance to tackle internal issues.

When you call our team for maintenance, we remove buildup and obstructions from your HVAC system. We also clean and comb the air conditioner’s evaporator and condenser coils to reduce blockages and improve efficiency.

Adjust the Thermostat

You can change your thermostat settings any time you like, but sometimes it takes a professional to zero in on the most efficient settings for your HVAC system. This is especially true if you have a smart thermostat or a Wi-Fi-enabled model.

During a standard preventive maintenance appointment, our knowledgeable technicians assess your thermostat settings and make recommendations to improve efficiency. From dialing back the temperature while the family is out of the house or asleep to using vacation mode options, our team helps you realize your thermostat’s energy efficiency potential.

If you haven’t scheduled preventive maintenance for your cooling system this season, there’s still time. Call JD’s A/C today at (903) 759-7483.
