The beginning of a new year is the time to set resolutions. This year, you should aspire to become a better HVAC owner. Here are some resolutions to make that will make your heating system last longer and your home more comfortable, helping you to more carefully care for your HVAC system.
Replace Your Air Filters
Changing or cleaning your air filter is a simple and powerful way to increase the efficiency of your furnace and to help it last longer. This also helps keep your indoor air healthier with fewer pollutants and irritants. You should clean your filter at least every three months or more often if you have family members with allergies.
Follow a Maintenance Schedule
2020 is the year to sign a maintenance service agreement with a local HVAC firm. This will ensure that your heating system is operating at peak efficiency and is well taken care of.
Upgrade Your Thermostat
A programmable or smart thermostat will quickly pay for itself in reduced utility bills. Not only do you save money, but your home is also more comfortable. Even more, these smart thermostats are better for the environment.
Check for Leaky Ducts
You should head up to your attic and inspect your ducts for leaks. Do this while the system is running to make it easier to spot leaks. You can fix most leaks with HVAC tape.
Improve Your Home’s Insulation
Your home needs to be properly sealed to keep heat in. Make sure air leaks to the outside are fixed and that you have enough insulation in your attic.
Turn Down Your Thermostat
A home is just as comfortable at 68 degrees for most people as it is at 72 degrees. Consider turning down the heat in 2020, which will also save you money.
