The new year is a chance to improve your home, and you can start with your HVAC system. By setting achievable goals for your home’s HVAC system, you’ll not only feel more comfortable indoors, but you’ll also save more money throughout the year! If you’re not sure where to start, here’s what our AC maintenance team at Cool Zone Air Conditioning & Heating suggests you do first:
Change your air filter more often. Your filter helps remove particulates such as hair, dust, pollen, and fibers from the air moving through your HVAC system. It should be checked regularly (at least once a month), and maybe even more often if your indoor air tends to have larger amounts of pollutants. Be sure to check the air filter in your HVAC system every month to ensure cleaner indoor air and more efficient operation.
Improve your indoor air quality. You might not be aware of it, but the air you breathe indoors can contain the same smog and pollution found outside. This is particularly true in urban areas. This is because the air we’re constantly breathing moves through the HVAC system up to several times a day, and if there are particulates trapped in your ducts or dirt and debris in your home, you may end up experiencing allergic symptoms such as congestion, sore throats, headaches, and eye irritation. All these symptoms are signs that you need to improve your home’s indoor air quality.
While you may have already changed your air filter, improving your indoor air quality doesn’t stop there. Consider hiring an AC repair technician to install an air purifier that removes contaminants so that you’ll have cleaner, healthier air for you and your family to breathe.
Commit to a regular maintenance schedule. To ensure that your HVAC system stays in top condition throughout the year, make sure to schedule annual tune-ups. We recommend scheduling both a spring and a fall tune-up to increase the efficiency of your HVAC system and help prevent performance problems and breakdowns when you least expect them.
