What Leap Day 2016 Means for Your Heater


It’s Time for Leap Year Again

In 2016, the presence of an “extra” Leap Day during the month of February means that your household heating system will likely generate slightly higher bills than it did this month last year. If you do use your furnace at this time of year, you’ll appreciate the warmth it provides during periods when outdoor temperatures fall.

Leap Years usually occur regularly, at four year intervals that coincide with the U.S. national presidential election campaigns, the Olympics and the Paralympics.

Optimum Efficiency for your Heater & AC

Did you know that you’ll keep your household utility bills to a minimum during February, even during a Leap Year, when you obtain regular HVAC maintenance and cleaning? People sometimes don’t realize that heating and cooling systems function more efficiently when technicians routinely clean certain mechanical components.

For example, during the course of a typical year in Pinellas County, Fla., air conditioning usually obtains heavy use. As a cooling system operates, tiny particles of dust from the air begin to cycle through parts of the unit. Over the course of time, this material creates dirt in the system’s evaporator coils. The debris accumulates gradually and degrades the operation of the machinery. By asking One Hour Air Largo’s service technicians to regularly inspect and clean your HVAC system, you’ll enjoy better HVAC energy efficiency.
