It’s that time of year again. We are creeping out of summer and into fall, which means it’s time to go back to school! So, grab your books and supplies, and don’t forget your iWave-r! I’m just kidding. Though this nifty device could fit in your book bag, it wouldn’t serve you much good at school. I will tell you what it is suitable for and some other essential things to keep in mind for your HVAC system as we enter this upcoming season. So, without further ado, here is what Newark-Heath Heating & Cooling wants you to know.
When Do I Reset My Thermostat?
Resetting your programmable thermostat is more important than one may think, especially as colder weather approaches. Not only does this have the ability to provide better comfort for fall and winter, but it will also help better control your energy bills for the entire season! When awake and at home, target your home’s temperature at around 68 degrees. To save energy, you will want to set it to a lower temperature as you sleep and while you are away. Believe it or not, each degree makes a difference in those savings! However, never lower your thermostat below 55 degrees during the winter weather, or your pipes could freeze. And, for maximum money savings, set your thermostat at a reasonable temperature for at least 8 hours before making any adjustments while avoiding any extreme adjustments.
Why Should I Clean My Condensate Drain?
An unclean condensate drain is harmful to your health and can cause unnecessary problems for your system. Your condensate line must drain effectively to ensure steady, clean, and healthy hot air flow as the temperatures drop outdoors. Excess moisture that piggybacks on an unclean drain can be the culprit behind furnace malfunctions, breakdowns, rusting, molding, and bacteria growth. Furthermore, dirt and debris on your line can contribute to the line freezing in the winter, so preventative measures are crucial. Clean it now before it’s too late!
What Is The Significance Of Sealing Ductwork?
For your heating system to work at an optimal level, it is essential to have your ductwork evaluated by a professional. If there is a leak in your ducts, no matter how minor-appearing, it can sincerely affect the functioning of your heating system this winter. A loss of the airtight integrity of your ducts will lead to excess costs on your energy bills and can lower the air quality within your home. And here is where the iWave-r comes in handy. In its design for universal mounting, the iWave-r is typically installed inside or outside your ducts. The iWave-r is a neat piece of HVAC equipment that reduces certain bacteria and viruses, which is excellent for this time of year when germs and illnesses seem to spread like wildfire! Additionally, this device reduces odors, smoke, static electricity, and other pestering particles within the home. Along with your air quality, your duct coils will also remain cleaner.
