New Year’s Resolutions for Your HVAC System

January 2, 2019

It’s a new year! Now is the ideal time to make a commitment to properly maintain your home’s HVAC system. It’s really simple, and Advance Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning in Greenville, NC has made it even more simple. We’ve put together a list of 4 New Year’s resolutions perfect for your HVAC system.

1. Change Air Filters Regularly

Regularly changing the air filters in your home’s HVAC system is one of the most important resolutions you should make – and it is also one of the easiest. Mark your calendar and make it a point to change air filters about every two months. During the summer and winter months when you run your HVAC system most often, plan to change filters once a month. It may seem minor, but this change will have a big impact on your system throughout the year. Air filters prevent dirt, dust and other airborne particles from entering your system, keeping it cleaner and preventing frequent breakdowns.

And a bonus – clean air filters improve indoor air quality by removing harmful particles and increasing system operating efficiency.

2. Improve Indoor Air Quality

Having good indoor air quality is essential for your family’s health and the efficient operation of your HVAC system. In 2019, adopting a few healthy habits, such as cleaning regularly and adding green plants throughout your home, will go a long way toward improving indoor air quality.

If you want to do even more, we recommend investing in air quality components for your HVAC system. At Advance Mechanical, we offer a wide range of products to remove pet dander, pollen and other harmful allergens from the air your family breathes every day.

3. Invest In A Programmable Thermostat (If You Don’t Already Have One)

One of the best HVAC resolutions you can make is to save energy, and installing a programmable thermostat is one of the easiest ways to do that. These thermostats allow you to program your HVAC to your family’s preferred comfort setting when you are home. But, when no one is home, your HVAC system will switch to a more energy-efficient setting, which you can program to run until the time your family normally returns. This way, you can stay comfortable without wasting energy (and money) to heat and cool an empty home.

If you already have a programmable thermostat, take the time to make sure that it is programmed correctly.

4. Schedule Preventative Maintenance and Tune Ups

It is important to have regular maintenance on your heating and air conditioning system to keep it running at peak efficiency and to avoid inconvenient breakdowns. Join Advance Mechanical’s Comfort Club and have twice-yearly system cleaning and tune-ups, along with many other benefits.
