Bipolar Winter Weather Got You Down? Here’s How to Beat It.
Georgia weather is a rollercoaster that can throw you for a loop. One week, subfreezing temperatures greet you every morning, and the next week, flowers start peeking out of the ground to see if spring has arrived. Fluctuating temperatures outside may have you flipping between your AC and heat indoors. If you’re worried about how the hot and cold spikes could be affecting your energy bill, use these tips from a Marietta HVAC company to keep the inside of your home comfortable year-round, no matter what the weather brings.
Don’t Skip on Maintenance
Your HVAC system is not harmed by switching between cooling and heating, so if you have to run the AC when hotter-than-normal winter temperatures hit, it’s fine. What does compromise your HVAC system is lack of maintenance, which puts unnecessary strain on the unit. With the right maintenance and temperature setting, it will be ready for anything Marietta weather throws its way.
You can help your furnace and air conditioner last longer by replacing the filter yourself. When your HVAC specialist comes to give your system a tune up, they will be glad to show you where it is and how to do it, since it needs to be replaced more frequently than when annual maintenance is performed.
Set the Right Temperature
The weather report is your friend. By paying attention to the coming fluctuations in weather, you can set the thermostat to appropriately heat or cool. There’s nothing more uncomfortable than waking up to a really cold house when the heat is off. On the flipside, forgetting to set the thermostat to cool on a warm day can be unpleasant also.
Remembering to set the right temperature and turning on the heat is especially important when outside temperatures get well below freezing. If you go on vacation and forget to set the heat to turn on when the indoor temperature falls below 55, freezing temperatures can cause pipes to burst. The resulting water damage can be costly.
Make Life Easy with a Smart Thermostat
A smart thermostat can be the perfect fix for temperature fluctuations that Marietta deals with during fall, winter, and spring. It allows you to preset temperature parameters for your AC and heat, and will switch on or off automatically in response to outdoor temperature changes.
Have you ever left for work when it was one temperature outside, only to return hours later to an uncomfortable indoor temperature? With a smart thermostat, you don’t have to worry about unexpected temperature changes affecting your home when you’re away for the day or an extended period of time, because it automatically adjusts within its preset parameters. If you’re away for an extended period of time, you can set it to reduce heating and cooling usage to not waste energy costs.
