Some thermostats are battery-powered, so replace the batteries at least once a year. Failed batteries can cause your furnace to get stuck on and continuously run.
If you allow the house to stay cooler in the winter and warmer in the summer, the system will run less frequently! It will use less power and last longer.
Keeping the area around your indoor HVAC unit clear improves air quality and safety. The more stuff you have sitting around, the more surface area there is to collect dust that will eventually make its way into the vent system.
If you notice a spike or a gradual increase in energy consumption when usage is unchanged, it could be a sign of dirty filters, duct leaks, low refrigerant, failing parts or other issues could be the cause.
