With an efficient HVAC system, your home will stay comfortable no matter the season. To ensure your equipment performs optimally, you must operate it correctly and invest in regular maintenance. Routine tune-ups will keep your heating and cooling system in top shape and even extend its service life. 

Good HVAC Habits

Here are some good HVAC habits you should consider making part of your 2022 resolutions. 

Invest in a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat can help your HVAC system cool or heat your home more efficiently. It allows you to control your heating and cooling anywhere, any time. You can use your smartphone, tablet or laptop to adjust your thermostat even if you’re not at home. With a smart thermostat, you can schedule your equipment to run less when you’re away, helping reduce your energy costs. 

Replace filters regularly. Regular filter changes are one of the easiest ways to keep your HVAC system efficient and maintain good indoor air quality. A dirty air filter can put a strain on your equipment, causing damage and even affecting its lifespan. Depending on what kind of filter you have, you may need to replace it every one to three months. If someone in the family has allergies, asthma or other respiratory issues, you may need to replace your filters more often. 

Schedule routine maintenance. Routine HVAC inspections and tune-ups allow professionals to detect and fix issues before they turn into serious problems that require costly repairs. Keep in mind that a proactive approach toward your HVAC system can lead to a longer service life. It will also help ensure your equipment runs safely and efficiently.
