Most people set resolutions for the new year. Some aspire to be more successful, some aim for better health, while others just want more peace of mind. Whatever you put on your New Year’s Resolution list, it’s vital to make sure you pursue your goals with vigor. It’s also a good idea to add some HVAC resolutions to the list. In this post, experienced air conditioning repair contractor Cool Zone Air Conditioning and Heating shares four suggestions.
Set Up Annual Preventive Maintenance
If you don’t have one already, set up an annual preventive maintenance plan with your HVAC company that will keep your HVAC system in good shape all year ’round. This will help prolong the life of your equipment and decrease the chances of damage occurring.
Inspect and Change Air Filters
Air filters catch small particles like dust, hair, pollen and fibers and prevent them from circulating through your HVAC system. It’s essential to inspect air filters at least once a month. Make it a point to examine the air filters in your air conditioner, furnace or heat pump monthly. You should also change the air filters based on the recommendations of your commercial air conditioning provider. This will help keep your indoor air cleaner while also maximizing the function of your HVAC equipment.
Seal Air Leaks
If there are air leaks in your home, they’re most likely wasting energy and increasing your heating or cooling costs. As one of your New Year’s resolutions, make sure to seal these leaks with caulk or other sealing materials to prevent air loss and help you save on energy costs.
Take Advantage of a Programmable Thermostat
By making use of a programmable thermostat, you’ll be reducing your energy bills because you can set your thermostat to adjust itself according to your schedule and your heating and cooling needs.
These resolutions may be simple, but they’re also an excellent way to kickstart the new year by improving the efficiency of your HVAC system and cutting energy costs.
