The beginning of a new year is a traditional time to make resolutions that have a positive impact on your quality of life. When you’re deciding on changes you’d like to make for the coming year, consider the following HVAC resolutions that can bring you a healthier, more comfortable home, and lower energy bills.

Aim for Better Air Quality

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, levels of air pollutants inside a home can be five times higher than outdoors. To help rid your home’s air supply of harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other contaminants like pollen, pet dander, mold spores, bacteria and viruses, have an air purifier system added to your HVAC system.

Give Your Duct System Some TLC

A duct system that’s damaged, leaky, and lacks proper insulation can waste a significant amount of your HVAC equipment’s hot or cold air output. Having the ductwork inspected, then repaired, sealed and insulated can make your home more comfortable, and help your HVAC system run more efficiently so you spend less on heating and cooling. If the duct system is beyond repair, the old can be removed and disposed of properly, and new more efficient ductwork can be installed.

Invest in New HVAC Equipment

If your HVAC components are approaching the end of their lifespan, the new year may be an ideal time to invest in new equipment. The different HVAC system options available today offer greater installation flexibility and higher efficiency ratings. Plus, you’ll have an opportunity to install a system with advanced features such as a variable-speed air handler, modulating gas burner, zoning, and/or a smart thermostat that make it easier to save energy and have greater control of your home comfort.

Make a Maintenance Commitment

Regular professional maintenance plays a key role in the energy efficiency, reliability and longevity of your HVAC system. To protect and maximize your HVAC investment, make a resolution to schedule regular maintenance twice a year for your heating and air system. You can make HVAC care more convenient and worry-free by opting for a maintenance plan with your trusted HVAC company.
