Homeowners: HVAC Resolutions To Make For The New Year

As a homeowner, you might not be paying as much attention to your heating and air conditioning system as you should be. Although you will obviously notice that there is a problem if your heat or air conditioning doesn't turn on, you might not think that there is much to think or worry about as long as your system works. However, it is time to make a few changes in the new year. These are a few resolutions that you should consider making -- and sticking to -- in regards to your heating and air conditioning system.

Change Your Air Filter More Often

You've probably heard time and time again that you should be changing your HVAC filters more frequently. However, this is an easy thing to forget, and you might be skipping this critical maintenance step more than you would like to admit. Changing your filter as recommended by the manufacturer -- usually every month or every three months -- is very important if you want to keep your system running efficiently and if you want to prevent future repair issues. Plus, you are sure to notice a big difference in your home's indoor air quality, particularly if you have pets or if you smoke in the house. Also, if you have made it your goal to keep a cleaner house this year, changing your filter regularly can help -- it can actually cut down on the dust and dirt that is blown throughout your home.

Have Your Unit Inspected and Maintained

It is always a good idea to hire an HVAC professional to come out and inspect and maintain your unit once before the summer and once before the winter. This is a good time to make sure that your unit is prepared to keep your home and family comfortable during the hot and cold months and to ensure that it's operating at its full capacity. Plus, if your unit is still under warranty, taking this step can help prevent any warranty issues.

Consider Replacing Your Unit This Year

Have you thought about replacing your HVAC unit? If your unit is old, isn't energy efficient or is in need of extensive repair, it could be worth your while to replace it now. Many HVAC companies offer financing options that will help you pay for your purchase, and your potential energy savings can make it worthwhile in the long run.

It's a new year, so it's time to make some positive changes. Make it your goal to follow these resolutions in the new year so that you can enjoy the best heating and cooling experience possible all year long.

About Me

The Comfort of Home

When I married my amazing husband ten years ago, I moved into the brick, ranch home he already owned. Immediately, I was thankful that the house was equipped with a central heating and air conditioning unit. This once efficient system kept me cool during the hot summer days. It also allowed me to remain warm in my home during the cold winter nights. Now, our air conditioning unit is twenty years old. Because of its age, the system has started to malfunction. Recently, my husband contacted an HVAC contractor about installing a new system at our home. This kind technician patched our old system to give us time to contemplate what type of new unit we want. On this blog, I hope you will discover the ways an HVAC contractor can help you continue to enjoy the comfort of your home.
