New Year’s Resolutions for your heating and air conditioning

Change Your Air Filter Regularly

One of the most important HVAC-related New Year’s resolutions you should make is also one of the easiest to do. Mark your calendar and make a point of changing your system’s air filter regularly. During the peak of summer or winter, when you run your HVAC system the most, plan to change the filter once a month. When the outdoor temperatures are milder in the spring and summer, plan to replace the filter every three months.

Air filters prevent dust, dirt, and other airborne particles from entering the system, keeping it clean and preventing frequent breakdowns.

Air filters improve indoor air quality by removing harmful particles from your home’s air supply and increasing system operating efficiency by keeping airflow smooth.

Schedule Preventive Maintenance

 Another smart way to keep your system running smoothly is to schedule preventive maintenance. We recommend annual HVAC maintenance for each major system. You’ll want to schedule a tuneup for your air conditioner or heat pump in the spring and another for your furnace in the fall.

With our maintenance agreements, you’ll get a discount on parts and labor.

Invest in a Smart Thermostat

If your HVAC system has kept your family comfortable for a decade or more, you might still rely on a manual thermostat, but they’re missing the energy-efficient features that smart thermostats offer.

With one of these devices, you can program your family’s heating and cooling schedule, which means your HVAC system will turn on only when necessary. Dialing back 8 to 10 degrees can save you up to $180 per year in utility costs.

Since smart thermostats are linked to your home’s Wi-Fi network, you can connect to them from anywhere in the world and adjust the temperature or indoor air quality settings.

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

If your indoor air quality is less than ideal or if you simply want to automate the process, we recommend investing in air quality components for your HVAC system.

We offer air purifiers, dehumidifiers and humidifiers.

Increase Ventilation

 If you’ve taken steps to seal air leaks or insulate your attic and foundation, you’re already one step ahead of many homeowners.

Fortunately, we have an easy solution for keeping your home’s air supply fresh and clean. Our energy-recovery ventilators work with your home’s HVAC system to pull in fresh air and flush out stale air on a continual cycle.

 Add Zoning Systems

 Many Shreveport-Bossier City homeowners struggle with keeping the temperature comfortable throughout the house. If there is more than one level in your house, add zoning systems to your home. Our heating and cooling experts install dampers in your HVAC system’s ductwork and connect them to a series of electrical sensors. You can then program a different temperature for each zone.

 Upgrade Your HVAC System

 If your HVAC system is reaching the end of its lifespan, which is generally 10 to 15 years for air conditioners and 15 to 20 years for furnaces, start thinking about an upgrade. There have been many advancements in HVAC.

 Plan Ahead

 Scheduling preventive maintenance before the heating or cooling season starts.

Similarly, investing in a new furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump during the off-season can mean better prices, a more convenient installation schedule, and extra time to consider the best option for your family.
