Your HVAC system does a lot throughout the entire year. From keeping your home cool in the summer with air conditioning to warming your home in the winter with the furnace. So, as you start your New Year’s resolutions in 2022, don’t forget about your heating and cooling system. Here, Fritts Heating & Air discusses a few New Year’s resolutions for your HVAC system for 2022 and beyond.
Change Your Air Filter Periodically
One of the easiest New Year’s resolutions to keep up in 2022 is to change your filter regularly. Typically a standard HVAC company recommends that you change your air filters every three months or so. Clean air filters help your HVAC system run efficiently, reduce wear on your overall system, and help with indoor air quality. You can purchase standard air filters from your local hardware store. If you need help replacing your filters, call your local HVAC technician and schedule a time for them to come out and replace them for you.
Consider a Smart Thermostat
With the new year in full force, consider making the switch over to a smart thermostat. While a standard thermostat works just fine when it comes to triggering system cycles, it doesn’t have the added perks that go along with today’s smart thermostats. Some of these include:
Having Wi-Fi connectivity so you can adjust your home’s HVAC settings remotely
Tracking energy usage
Getting to know your comfort patterns so automatic adjustments can be made
Programming settings to match your heating and cooling preferences when awake and sleeping
Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
An efficient HVAC system is one that can improve your health and well-being by keeping the indoor air quality pure and clean. A great New Year’s resolution for your HVAC system is to boost your indoor air quality. Consider these few things:
Set up a regular cleaning schedule
Add some green plants to your indoor spaces
Include some air quality components to your HVAC system
Purchase a whole-house dehumidifier or other air quality products
Buy ventilators that help with the intake of fresh air and removal of stale air
Upgrade Your HVAC System
HVAC systems typically last for about 10-15 years for the cooling part and 15-20 years for the heating part. If your heating and cooling system are at or near the end of its natural lifespan, use the new year as an incentive to consider investing in a new HVAC system. Even though replacing your system might be pricey, you’ll thank yourself in the long run. Newer HVAC systems are designed to be more efficient than what was common even a decade or so ago.
