New Year’s Resolutions for Your HVAC System

December 26, 2019

Your home’s heating and cooling system use more energy than any other appliance. Maintaining an efficient HVAC system can save you a lot of money on monthly energy bills. Saving money is a fairly common New Year’s resolution and by following these HVAC tasks in 2020, you can do exactly that.

Install a Programmable Thermostat

These are quite common in modern homes, but there is still a fairly large chunk of houses that do not have a programmable thermostat.

This feature allows you to more efficiently heat and cool your home by setting your desired temperature when you are home and when you are away. You can’t do that with a traditional thermostat.

Invest in a Seasonal Tune-up

When the weather turns cold, it never hurts to have trained HVAC technicians provide a comprehensive inspection of your furnace. The same applies to your air conditioner during the warm months.

Yearly maintenance work is generally quite affordable and allows your system to operate as efficiently as possible while helping you avoid very costly repairs and breakdowns.

Reed Service Company in Beaumont, Texas, provides preventative maintenance plans for both heating and cooling systems, ensuring you’re always ready for the upcoming season.

Do Your Part

It’s best to trust HVAC maintenance and repairs to the professionals, but you can do your part by changing your air filter every one or two months or taking time to vacuum out the dust from the inside of your furnace. Also, make sure your furnace is in a well-ventilated room. Remove clutter and keep the door open, if possible.

Find and Address Air Leaks or Poorly Insulated Areas of Your Home

If the outside air is getting in, your HVAC system has to work extra hard to bring your home to the desired temperature. Work to find and patch air leaks. Also, if certain areas of your home are poorly insulated, consider supplementing it with new, foam insulation to help trap the conditioned air inside.
