5 New Year’s Resolutions for Your HVAC System

A new year means a new you, and it all starts with your New Year’s resolutions. If you feel like you’ve tried every one in the book, we’ll give you one that you probably haven’t thought of: live more comfortably. This means making the effort to take care of, and become more educated about your HVAC system. If you’re ready to take the leap into saving money and living more comfortably, add these 5 New Year’s resolutions for your HVAC system to your list!

1. Become More Knowledgeable About Your HVAC System

The first step to living more comfortably is to learn more about your HVAC system. Learning more about your system will help you prevent problems, increase efficiency, and prolong system life. Before you go diving into books and long articles, check out our blog! We share two blog posts every month to help educate you on different topics regarding your HVAC system. Make it a resolution to sign up for our newsletter where you’ll receive one email a month with helpful tips and tricks for learning more about your comfort system.

2. Sign Up for Preventative Maintenance

When you have preventative maintenance regularly performed on your heating system, you’re guaranteeing your home’s comfort. Preventative maintenance stops the need for costly emergency repairs and increases the efficiency of your system. When you become a member of our maintenance program, you can be sure your system will run smoothly throughout the new year, and for years to come. During your check-up, our technicians complete a full system inspection, checking for proper voltage/ amps, pressures, and start-ups, as well as cleaning system components and replacing worn-out parts. You’ll save money in the long run while being more comfortable.

3. Invest In A Programmable Thermostat

Our world has become so increasingly technological, we can’t imagine how we could possibly need anything more. However, if you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you don’t have to imagine, because this is something you do need! With a programmable thermostat, you can save money and live more comfortably by scheduling your home’s comfort levels to match your lifestyle. For the best tips on programming your thermostat to give you ultimate comfort and energy savings, view our blog “Guide to Controlling Your Programmable Thermostat.”

4. Keep It Clean

Keeping hard-to-reach components of your system clean is part of what we do during maintenance check-ups. However, there are things you can do yourself to help keep your system clean. Regularly changing your air filter is an important part of keeping a healthy system and good indoor air quality. Also make sure you’re keeping your outside unit clean and free of debris. Both of these things will help keep your system efficient and properly operating throughout every season.

5. Invest In A New System

If your system is over 10 years old, or if it has been underperforming and constantly needed repairs over the past few years, it may be time for an upgrade. Our high-efficiency comfort systems can save you money and keep you comfortable for years to come. Because a new comfort system is a big investment, who you choose to install it, really matters.
