6 HVAC New Year’s Resolutions

Every year, more than 40% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions. While yours may have to do with losing weight or getting more organized, our HVAC service experts encourage you to add just one more – for your home’s sake.

Schedule Annual Maintenance

No matter how old your HVAC system is, an annual maintenance check-up can keep it running smoothly and extend its lifespan. Do yourself (and your unit) a favor and have our HVAC service contractors take care of it.

Adjust Your Thermostat

Lowering your thermostat a couple degrees during the winter months and upping it a couple degrees during the summer months will not only help you use less energy, but will also help you save some money on your energy bills.

Change Your Filters

On average, your HVAC filter should be changed every three months. (If you smoke or have pets, however, it should be changed more often.) Changing your filter will keep your air clean and your HVAC unit running efficiently.

Go Programmable

If you don’t already have a programmable thermostat, consider investing in one. You’ll be able to set it so that you only use your heat or air conditioning when you’re home and reduce your use while you’re out of the house. This will mean less used energy, which means lower bills.

Take Precautions

If you think something is wrong with your HVAC unit, vents, or ducts, don’t hesitate to give our friendly HVAC service staff a call. We’d be happy to assess your situation and help take care of it – and you’ll be able to sit back and relax.

Schedule a Duct Cleaning

While your HVAC unit does most of the work to heat or cool your home, don’t forget that your air ducts are part of the picture. Dirty air ducts mean dirty air, which you don’t want to be breathing. They also mean a decrease in HVAC efficiency. Schedule an air duct cleaning to keep your family healthy and HVAC unit happy.
