  1. Subjecting your thermostat to heat– this can happen if your thermostat is in the path of direct sunlight or it’s surrounded by heat-producing electronics. Things like televisions, stereo systems or larger appliances like the refrigerator, stove or oven call all contribute to inaccurate temperature readings.
  2. Choosing the wrong filter– this goes for both super-efficient models as well as the cheapest option on the shelf, neither choice is a good one. Cheap, flimsy air filters can lead to poor indoor air quality while a very efficient model could produce too much drag for your system. For best performance, it’s vital to match the filter to the type and size of the system you have.
  3. Forgoing regular maintenance– you wouldn’t go years without getting the oil changed in your car, right? Well, the same theory goes for your hvac system. Regular maintenance is imperative if you want to keep your system running at peak performance and avoid costly repairs.
