Need assistance making your resolutions a reality? Contact the pros at Sheldon's Heating & Air Conditioning for HVAC services in Riverside and Inland Empire, CA.
1. Save Energy and Money
There are many ways to act conservatively and save energy. The following tips will also save you money on your energy bills:
● Turn the heat down two degrees and throw on a sweater.
● Insulate hot water pipes so your water heater has less work to do.
● Use appliances efficiently. (Fill up the dishwasher, turn off lights when you leave a room, etc.)
● Take shorter showers to save money on energy and water.
2. Change Your Filter on Time
The more efficiently your HVAC system works, the more money you can save. When you change your filter as recommended by the manufacturer, you make it easier for your system to circulate hot or cold air throughout your home. Did you know that you can also improve your indoor air quality by changing your filter frequently?
Our local technicians are familiar with all brands and models of HVAC systems installed in Riverside and the surrounding communities. We can help you determine when to change the filter and the type of filter needed for your system.
3. Schedule an HVAC Tune-up Now
Contact the pros at Sheldon's Heating & Air Conditioning to schedule an HVAC tune-up today. It’s important to have your HVAC cleaned and lubricated to keep it running efficiently. We recommend scheduling a tune up immediately after the temperatures begin to cool off or warm up. This way you can beat the rush and ensure that your system is ready to go when you need it.
4. Learn How to Clean Specialty Items
It’s easy to forget the type of pads and cleaner to get for your stainless-steel range. You might also forget how to clean those expensive drapes. However, proper cleaning can increase the useful life of expensive household items. The same holds true of your HVAC system. Talk to our certified technicians to find out how often you need to schedule an HVAC cleaning.
5. Seal Windows and Doors
You can save energy and wear and tear on your heating and cooling system when you weatherize your doors and windows. If you need tips on how to insulate the ductwork and other areas where hot or cold air can leak into or out of your home, contact our team at Sheldon’s Heating and Air Conditioning.
6. Keep a Donation Box Ready
This is a great way to do good and avoid clutter at the same time. If you keep a box of things you no longer need, you’ll have it handy when it’s time to donate or sell the items for a good cause. They’ll also be organized and ready to deliver to your favorite charitable organization.
