2021 is almost here and one resolution you can include on your list this year is to be a more attentive HVAC system owner! Here are a few resolutions you can make to prolong the life of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Don’t forget to change your filters
You need to change home air filters regularly for top efficiency. When was the last time you changed your filters? If you can’t remember, it’s probably been too long. It's recommended to do so every 1-3 months.
Invest in preventative maintenance
Have a professional come to your home and give everything a thorough once over. Even if you’re capable of spotting small problems, getting a second opinion from a pro can help you avoid trouble even more effectively.
Address any long-avoided duct leaks
Give your ducts regular visual inspections whenever you’re able, and act as soon as you notice leaks. If you don’t have the right type of metallic foil tape made for duct repairs, that’s ok. It's best to call a professional to fix those cracks and save you money in the future.
Look into programmable thermostats, they allow you to directly control the temperature of different rooms inside your home. You can even determine the right temp. for when you’re out and about from an app on your phone. It can save you money while making your home more comfortable and energy efficient.
Clean your ducts
Getting your ducts cleaned is a great way to improve the quality of your indoor air. It reduces your risk of airborne illness, prevents mold growth and even pest infestation. It can also helps your home smell better.
