MAINTAINING YOUR BRYANT® SYSTEM
Your Bryant® heating and cooling system is an investment in your family’s comfort. With the proper care and maintenance, it will deliver reliable performance and comfort year after year. To make sure your Bryant system is always performing at its best, we recommend the following maintenance tips. Some, you can do yourself. Others, it’s best to ask your friendly and knowledgeable Bryant HVAC Contractor to perform for you. Your Bryant dealer is always happy to do Whatever It Takes® to help you maintain your system and maximize comfort.
Replace or Clean Your Air Filter Regularly
A dirty air filter can make your system run harder, increasing your heating and cooling costs and reducing the life of the blower motor, coils and other parts. Circulating dirty air can also aggravate allergies and those with sensitive immune systems. It’s best to inspect your air filter regularly and replace it every three months. If you have pets, you may need to replace your air filter more frequently.
Add a Smart Thermostat
Ask your Bryant dealer to install a smart thermostat. An ecobee smart thermostat can help you save up to 23% on your annual heating and cooling energy costs.*View Smart Thermostats keyboard_arrow_right
Have Your System Inspected & Cleaned Twice a Year
Contact your local Bryant dealer to schedule a clean and check. Do it once in the fall for your furnace and once in the spring for your air conditioner or heat pump . This can identify minor issues before they turn into big problems and will ensure your system stays in great running order.
Set Ceiling Fans to Spin in the Right Direction
Ceiling fans can help your system with air distribution. During the summer, set fans to turn counterclockwise, creating a downdraft that makes you feel cooler. During the winter, set fans to turn clockwise, creating an updraft which forces down warm air near the ceiling.
Keep 80% of Your Home’s Vents Open
To run properly, your HVAC system needs a good supply of air circulation. If you close off more than 20 percent of your home’s registers, it can put too much strain on the system. If you feel the air flow in your home isn’t right, talk with your Bryant dealer for additional comfort solutions.
