No, improving someone's HVAC energy efficiency is not a typical New Year’s resolution, but it is something you should think about putting on your list! Your furnace is incredibly important to have running optimally in your home, especially during the winter. Here are just a few tips you can take advantage of to get better heating and air conditioning energy efficiency this year!
Buy a New HVAC System
Do you plan on updating your house this upcoming year or putting it on the market to sell? Upgrading your HVAC system can improve the selling point of your home, which can be incredibly useful if you’re looking to put your home on the market shortly! Also, repairing your current HVAC system is incredibly important to do to improve your home’s air quality and energy efficiency. Fortunately, you can hire Beam HVAC to see what kind of upgrades you can make and determine which are most affordable!
Schedule Regular Maintenance
Instead of purchasing a new system, plan on scheduling a regular maintenance check so your HVAC system can work as effectively as possible! You must schedule regular precision maintenance. This way, Beam HVAC can let you know about any necessary repairs and fine-tune your system. Routine maintenance can also help prolong the life of your system and reduce the number of issues it will face throughout the year.
Look Into a Smart Thermostat
One of the best tips you can put to use right away is investing in a smart (programmable) thermostat in your home. Although these devices can cost a bit of money, they’re well worth the cost for the thermostat and installation. Smart thermostats can have programmed temperatures that can be implemented for different times of the day. For example, the device can be used to warm your home when you’re there and lower the temperature while you’re at work or out of the house running errands. In fact, according to recent studies, most homeowners have been able to save up to 15 percent annually by using smart thermostats.
Have Your Ductwork Examined Consistently
Although it may not seem like it, the ductwork in your home is incredibly important, since it can become easily blocked by dust and other debris. If not regularly inspected and cleaned, it can cause dangerous air pollutants to circulate in your home, which could harm you and your family. You should have your ducts inspected and cleaned consistently. We recommend Air Duct Maintenance for this service.
Switch Out the Air Filter Regularly
Something so simple can help your HVAC energy efficient a lot. Periodically changing the air filter in your HVAC system will improve air quality in your home and generally improve the overall function of your heating and cooling units. You can do this yourself, or you can hire Beam HVAC twice per year to check the filter and replace it when necessary.
