5 New Year's Resolution for Your HVAC System
The new year is here, which means it is time to start thinking about your New Year's resolutions. A large portion of resolutions focuses on eliminating bad habits. While this often is based around your health, it can also be true about how you take care of things around the house. These are five New Year's resolutions you should make for your HVAC system.
Change the Air Filter
The air filter is a crucial part of the HVAC system, but it is often ignored. The air filter traps dusts and other air pollutants as they travel through the HVAC system. Once the filter gets clogged with gunk, it will not perform to its full potential. It is recommended to change the air filter every three months.
Install a Smart Thermostat
Smart thermostats are a great way to maintain ultimate control over the temperature of your home. You can program the thermostat to automatically lower the temperature when you are at work or sleeping. You can also manually adjust the temperature from nearly anywhere in the world. The temperature control settings on a smart thermostat can potentially save you hundreds of dollars every year.
Keep Indoor Air Clean
Keeping the air inside your home clean will improve the efficiency and longevity of your HVAC system. Clean breathing air limits the number of pollutants that are forced to run through the system daily. The best way to keep the air clean is by regularly dusting and cleaning surfaces. Installing a few green plants will also help.
Regularly Maintain Furnace
The HVAC system typically only gets attention when it starts to malfunction. The new year is the perfect time to change this bad habit. If you want your HVAC system to last a long time, you need to get it maintained regularly. The preventative tune-ups and cleanings keep everything in good working order. This is also the only way to discover minor issues before they become serious problems.
Replace Old Systems
If you are one of the many people living with an HVAC system that is more than 15 years old, it is time to get a new one. Replacing the system may be a big investment, but it will ultimately save you money in the long run. New HVAC systems are extremely energy efficient. You will also no longer have to worry about impending repair costs.
