Keep These New Year's Resolutions to Maintain an Efficient HVAC System

December 15, 2018 | Blog

The holiday season is here, and a new year is right around the corner. For most people in Kenner, Lousiana, setting a New Year’s resolution is a way to hold themselves accountable when trying to exercise more or eat healthier. After all, sometimes a fresh start is all you need to feel motivated enough to accomplish your goals. If you want your household to conserve more energy in 2019, you need to maintain an efficient HVAC system. Here’s how you can do that:

Change Your HVAC System’s Filter Regularly

When clean, the air filter in your HVAC system traps particle pollutants and prevents them from collecting in the ductwork and re-circulating in your home. A clogged air filter can’t perform this function. As a result, it strains your HVAC system, which can lead to more frequent breakdowns, higher energy costs and a premature replacement. To protect your HVAC system and prevent poor indoor air quality, change the air filter every 30 to 90 days.

Reduce Your Reliance on Your HVAC System

Cranking the thermostat up or down to cool or heat your home strains your HVAC system. These fluctuations can cause it to break down, and they increase your energy costs. Instead, consider keeping your home at a more constant temperature. In the summer, set your HVAC system’s thermostat to 78 degrees. In the winter, set it to 68 degrees.

Schedule Preventive HVAC Maintenance

Performing preventive HVAC maintenance is the number-one way to maximize your HVAC system’s efficiency. If you tend to forget to schedule HVAC maintenance, consider signing up for a Gold Star Service Plan. By doing so, you’ll ensure your HVAC system is always cared for by a qualified professional. As a result, you’ll minimize your energy costs.
