Air filter HVAC maintenance in Broad Ripple

Change Your Air Filter and Use Less Energy

Full air filters make your HVAC system run harder and expend more energy. Dirty filters mean a costlier utility bill for you. Not only will a clean filter help your HVAC system operate more efficiently, but it will also help avoid untimely breakdowns. Anyone who's had the heat go out in the middle of a freezing winter night will agree it's well worth inspecting and switching out your air filter.

You can purchase an air filter at any chain or home improvement retailer. Just make sure you get the right style, as a more spacious apartment may demand a larger air filter than a single-bedroom. You might also like to see if the maintenance staff offers their own replacements. Look at the filter each month, even if it's expected to hold up for 90 days. If you put it up to a light and are unable to see through it, that's an obvious indication you’re ready for a replacement.

Automate Those New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Were you aware that your Echo or Home smart speaker does more than only play that song you're wanting to hear? Utilizing a smart plug or smart light, you can operate lights through verbal commands or your phone app.

If you fail to turn a light off, you can do so directly from your phone instead of allowing it to burn the whole day. Or limit your power consumption even more by putting your lights on a timer to turn on and off automatically.

These high-tech and easy solutions give peace of mind in additional areas. If you're out of town on vacation or on a work trip, you can schedule your lights to activate automatically. You can give the appearance and make it look like you're home by setting the light to flip on at the same time you return home.
