It’s a time-honored tradition to celebrate the new year ahead by coming up with a few resolutions to make for the best year possible. As 2017 approaches, it is time to start thinking about what you want to do for a better year. While eating healthier or saving more money may be on your list every year, why not dedicate one or two of your New Year’s resolutions to your trusted HVAC system?
Make These HVAC New Year’s Resolutions
If you want to cut back on your energy usage or save a little money in 2017, then these HVAC New Year’s resolutions should be a great addition to your list:
Check and replace your air filters each month.
Checking your air filters once a month and replacing them when necessary is one of the easiest and most affordable ways that you can promote a long life for your heating and cooling system. Commit to checking your air filters on a regular schedule, and get to know when the filter should be changed. Regularly changing your dirty or clogged air filters helps you maintain healthier indoor air quality. It can also help you reduce issues that can result from overworking and overheating your equipment’s components.
Schedule routine HVAC maintenance.
Routine maintenance on your heating and cooling system can help you keep it running efficiently year-round. Your HVAC technician will not only clean your unit, but inspect it for any potential problems or repair needs. This can help you catch any issues with your heating and cooling system early on before these issues may start to affect your efficiency or lead to more costly breakdowns or malfunctions. Scheduling a seasonal air conditioning and heater tune-up is a resolution that can help you keep your HVAC system running optimally throughout the year for a more comfortable indoor environment.
Install a programmable thermostat.
If one of your goals for the new year is to save money, then installing a programmable thermostat should be on your list of HVAC resolutions. A programmable thermostat helps you better control your home’s temperature while you are away, allowing you to save energy and cut down on heating and cooling costs throughout the year. The expert technicians at McLay can help you find and install the best smart thermostat for your home. We have a line of thermostats from Carrier that provide you with ultimate control over your home comfort environment.
The key to seeing these resolutions through is consistency. Write yourself reminders on the calendar and schedule your maintenance appointments in advance to ensure that you are doing your best to keep these resolutions. Remember, the better you are to your HVAC system, the better it will be to you by keeping your family comfortable throughout the year.
