He has tips and tricks on how to properly maintain your systems, proper HVAC pricing, and even easy installation hacks.

There are many problems with older thermostats.

One common issue is accuracy.

For example, let's say you set the temperature to 70, it may not shut off until 68.

This means it will stay on longer which will cost you more money.

In another video, he suggested upgrading to the Eccobee, one with wifi connectivity.

Once connected, it will learn which temperature you like and then watch the weather forecast and be able to get your house to the temperature you prefer using off peak hours.

2. A new filter 

A good filter can save you money long term and help with the overall life of the unit.

When deciding which filter is best for your home consider these two things: how much air can get through the filter and how much dirt the filter can catch.

He said in a separate video that most filters on the market don’t catch that many particles found in the air.

“Most basic fiberglass filters that people have in their house only catch about 20% or less than 20% of the stuff that goes through it,” the expert said.

Additionally, he mentioned that the higher the MERV rating, the more particles it catches and restrictive it will be.

A Minimum Efficiency Reporting Values (MERV) report a filter's ability to capture larger particles.

He suggested a one-inch filter with extended pleating.

These are designed to provide great air flow but also catch all of the unwanted particles.

The one he showed on the video is a MERV 10.

3. Maintaining your system

Doing your own HVAC maintenance can save you money on service costs, early replacements on your system, and many headaches.

The first thing you can do is check your drains.

In his last video, he said that unclogging a drain is an easy way to save money as you won’t need to pay someone to come out and fix something you may be able to do yourself.

Here are a few ways to unclog a drain:

  • Pour vinegar or bleach down the drain to clear out any algae
  • Shop vac anything unwanted

The last few preemptive measures are to check your filters to make sure they are clean and working properly and to make sure your unit is sealed so no air is leaking out.

Cristiano Ronaldo ‘offered to Inter AND AC Milan’ but wantaway Man Utd star snubbed in fresh transfer blow

CRISTIANO RONALDO was reportedly offered to both Inter Milan and AC Milan.

But both clubs are said to have snubbed the chance to sign the wantaway Manchester United star in a fresh blow.

Ronaldo, 37, continues to be linked with a transfer away from Old Trafford this summer.

He sat down for showdown talks with new boss Erik ten Hag and agent Jorge Mendes when he returned to Carrington last month.

Ronaldo wants to play Champions League football and compete for the top honours in the game - something not currently on offer with the shambles at United.

According to reporter Tancredi Palmeri, the forward's name was put to the two San Siro clubs.

However, he adds neither side were willing to explore the possibility of landing the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Inter boast Romelu Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez and Edin Dzeko as strikers while Serie A champs AC have Ante Rebic, Olivier Giroud, Divock Origi and, when he returns from surgery, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Moves to Chelsea, Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich, Sporting Lisbon and Corinthians have all been reported but not come to fruition for Ronaldo this summer.

And so after being brought back in to start in the humiliation at Brentford on Saturday - with less than three weeks of the window remaining - it looks like he may be staying put after all.

The Portugal captain was visibly furious with goalkeeper David de Gea after his pair of calamitous howlers to gift Brentford an early 2-0 lead.

And his mood was no better come full-time as he stormed down the tunnel, ignoring the away fans and Ten Hag.

The manager this week claimed Ronaldo has not actually told the club he wants to quit - but the hammering in West London will not have helped the situation at all.
