1. Turn Down Your UnitContrary to popular belief, turning your unit off completely when you leave for extended periods of time usually isn’t a good idea. HVAC units are designed for continuous usage and parts can deteriorate if unused for longer periods of time. Turn your unit down, not off.
2. A Clean Home Makes for a Clean UnitBefore leaving for an extended trip, be sure to give your house a thorough cleaning. Dust and other contaminants can negatively affect your unit, so giving your house a good cleaning before you leave can alleviate these issues.
3. Open Your Vents
HVAC units are designed to operate with maximum airflow. Before you leave for vacation, make sure your vents are opened. Your unit will thank you!
