We are living in the second millennium and technology today has made our lives much easier than the lives of those that have passed before us. So many facilities are just at one click and one-touch and the automatic lifestyle is taking the lead. But it needs to be understood that no matter how automatic the technology and devices become, the influence of human involvement will always be there and it is the use and control of technology by the man himself that will make the difference. Let's take the example of the home comfort heating and cooling appliances. Almost every home in Canada has some kind of HVAC appliance and there are many homes where the systems in use are of advanced level, however, the truth is; only a handful of homeowners are actually making the right and efficient use of the efficient appliances. As a result, a majority is facing the consequences in the form of high energy bills, frequent repairs and sudden unhappy accidents. So you see how human influence matters? We shall discuss today the ways by which you can make the most of your HVAC system. We shall tell you how to increase your home's HVAC efficiency in just 5 simple steps.

Step# 1 Replacing/Cleaning Filters and its influence

So here's something that doesn't take place with an ''auto'' button. Despite having the Smartest Thermostat and the smartest appliances, you will have to do this by yourself. And mind you, Filter cleaning/replacing may seem ordinary, it can put your entire system at risk. Studies say that 9/10 HVAC system failures are caused by dust and debris. Your filter is meant to trap the dust and debris but once its power diminishes by getting dirty itself, you are supposed to give it a power pack by cleaning/replacing. Ever noticed how your system suddenly becomes more efficient and the indoor air more soothing after replacing filters? That's the power of filter cleaning.

Step# 2 Seals are a serious to-do

Homeowners think that small leaks, holes etc won't make much difference and, therefore, leave them as they are. In actual, the smaller the leak, the greater the air leak would be as the air will exit with higher velocity from there (that's what science tells us). So what happens as a result is that we keep wondering why the Furnace/Air Conditioner isn't working as efficiently as it was working the last year. Sealing leaks & holes is a serious to do. Take into account the doors and windows where there are possibilities of air leaks or where there are visible air leaks and seal them right away. You'll notice the difference in your system's efficiency soon after that.

Step# 3 Don't postpone repairs!

Here's what 7/10 homeowners do; they postpone repairs as long as their system is running by hook or by crook. Apparently, this appears to be a money saving practice, in actuality, it is a money wasting practice. When repairs are not taken seriously, not only the system ceases to operate with optimal efficiency, it also aggravates the situation even more that then leads to further damages to other parts of the system. So, First thing first. Call a pro!

Step# 4 Become smart - Install smart appliances 

There is no denying the fact that smart appliances are a wonderful way to increase efficiency and decrease energy bills. So if you can afford or can manage to make savings for purchasing smart appliances or at least a Smart Thermostat, it would be an investment worth making and worth returning in terms of ROI.

Step# 5 Revive your belief in professionalism

Professionals are professionals and no matter how efficient you are in HVAC service on your own, a professional's work will always speak for itself. So revive your belief in professionalism and call a professional for the annual checkup of your HVAC system. This will ensure the following things for sure;

- Any serious repair needs would be diagnosed in time

- With a detailed check-up, the system will revive its efficiency and will work will optimal performance

- The lifetime of the system will increase

- An increased efficiency will decrease the energy bills

You see, there are simple steps that can help you improve the HVAC efficiency of your system but did you observe what has actually been said above? That your contribution matters no matter how efficient the system is. Become concerned about your system from today.
