Now that the new year is upon us, it’s time to start thinking about making resolutions – and keeping them, of course. But, this time of year isn’t just about eating healthier or saving up money for a vacation. If you really want to get the most out of 2019, here are a few HVAC resolutions that will benefit your entire household.
Schedule Annual Maintenance
Your heating and cooling systems should be checked by a qualified HVAC technician once per year to ensure their efficiency and extend their longevity. The beginning of 2019 is a perfect time to schedule an appointment and get it taken care of right away.
Install a Smart Thermostat
There’s a good chance that your home already has a programmable thermostat, but is it a smart model? Upgrading to a unit equipped with a wi-fi connection, among other advanced functionalities, can give you better control over your energy usage and help lower your utility bills.
Invest in a Zoning System
If you’ve ever considered a zoning system for your home, or even if you haven’t, 2019 seems like the perfect year to get it done. By separating areas of your home into zones, your heating and cooling efficiency will vastly improve, thereby cutting down on your energy costs.
Check Your Air Filter Every 1-3 months
The beginning of 2019 is a great time to check your air filter, but this is something that you should do for the entire year. Checking it every 1-3 months will improve your indoor air quality and keep your HVAC system running smoothly.
Start Using an Air Cleaner
If you want to tackle the indoor air quality of your home, you can’t go wrong with an air cleaner. This type of unit will remove the vast majority of contaminants that inhabit the air and often cause respiratory issues to either develop or worsen.
