HVAC Resolutions to Make for the New Year

2020 is just around the corner, and while you may already have your New Year’s resolutions ready, it’s good to make room for more that will benefit your HVAC unit. With the help of a reliable cooling and heating company, you can improve efficiency and stop wasting energy on heating and cooling your home for the entirety of next year.

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Keeping up with your HVAC unit’s maintenance should be one of your priorities for 2020. Heating and cooling systems must undergo maintenance twice a year, once in the spring and again in the fall to prepare for summer and winter. By scheduling your service appointments, you’ll be able to minimize major issues that can shorten the unit’s life span and cost you a lot in additional repairs.

Change HVAC Air Filters

A dirty HVAC filter causes your heating and cooling equipment to work harder to move heated and cooled air, resulting in wasted energy and higher utility bills. It also lowers the quality of your home’s indoor air, which can make you and your family members sick. So, make sure to inspect your air filters every month, cleaning or replacing them as recommended by the heater and air conditioner repair pros.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

The quality of the air you breathe indoors tends to be significantly worse than that of the outdoors. Changing your HVAC filters might be a good start, but there are other things you can do as well to improve indoor air quality. Having the inside of your ducts cleaned will remove any trapped particles, such as dust and dirt. Investing in an air purifier can help remove airborne contaminants, resulting in clean, healthy air for you to breathe.

Program Your Thermostat

Ensure your home’s thermostat is programmed the right way. Modern HVAC systems come with programmable thermostats that allow you to set temperatures based on the times you’re generally at home at home and away. In doing this, you keep your indoors comfortable while minimizing instances of HVAC unit short cycling.
