Are you ready to make 2019 a year to remember? We’re here to help by giving you some HVAC resolutions that you can make that are not only easy to accomplish but will also enable you to save energy and money all year round.
Schedule a Check-up of Your HVAC System
An annual check-up of your HVAC system by a licensed technician will keep it running smoothly. It will also help prolong its operational lifespan, which means you won’t have to spend the big bucks for a replacement unit sooner than necessary.
Clean or Replace Your Air Filter Every 1-3 Months
When your air filter gets dirty, your heating and cooling systems are forced to work harder to condition your air properly. These filters should be checked every 1-3 months and either changed or replaced as needed, depending on the type of filter the system uses.
Invest in an Upgraded Thermostat
If your home still has a manual thermostat or even a more recent model hasn’t been switched out in the past several years, then it might be time to trade it in. Upgrading to a programmable or smart thermostat is a great way to start the year off right.
Schedule Regular Cleanings of Your Home
If you want to improve the quality of your indoor air, then you’re definitely going to have to perform regular cleanings around the house. When you vacuum, be sure to use a vacuum cleaner equipped with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter. For dusting, a microfiber cloth is best.
Install a Zoning System
A traditional heating and cooling setup isn’t exactly the most efficient way to condition your household. The installation of a zoning system will allow you to split your home into sections and concentrate your heating or cooling efforts only in the are that need it, which saves energy and money.
