6 HVAC New Year's Resolution

6 HVAC New Year's ResolutionThe new year is an opportunity to re-evaluate your home and the appliances you use to enjoy it. One of those is your HVAC system.

If you think you could be getting more out of your HVAC unit, keep reading. We’re covering 6 HVAC New Year’s Resolutions that every homeowner should consider implementing in 2023.

1. Install a Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats help to make your home more energy-efficient. You can use them to adjust the temperature of your home on the go and create programmed temperature scheduling to keep your house comfortable without driving up your energy bill.

2. Commit to Changing Your Air Filters Regularly

Experts recommend changing your air filters every 30-60 days. Doing so in 2023 will help your HVAC system operate more efficiently, while also improving its lifespan and the quality of the air circulating throughout your home.

3. Add a Zoning System to Your Home

You may also want to look at upgrading your HVAC system with zoned heating and cooling. Doing so will allow you to heat and cool different parts of your home to different temperatures.

This can improve the energy efficiency of your home tremendously and will help to accommodate the different temperature preferences of different members of your household at the same time.

4. Fix Those Leaky Windows and Doors

There’s no time like the new year to finally tackle those windows and doors that are poorly insulated. Doing so will help you save money on your energy bills since your HVAC unit won’t have to work as hard to achieve the programmed temperature settings.

Plus, when your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard, it sustains less stress, which should help to improve its lifespan.

5. Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

People are spending more and more of their time indoors. That means a higher and higher percentage of the air that your family breathes is coming from inside the home. This is why it’s important to take indoor air quality seriously.

You can do this by:

  • Having your air ducts cleaned
  • Changing your air filters regularly
  • Committing to sweeping, dusting, and mopping more consistently

6. Schedule Preventative Maintenance in Advance

The best thing that you can do to get more out of your HVAC system this year is to have a professional come out to look at it on a semi-regular basis. You’ll generally want to do this at least twice per year – typically just before the summer and winter begin.
