As we get closer to the New Year, it is a perfect time to go through your annual HVAC maintenance checklist. Properly maintaining your HVAC system has a long list of benefits. Not only will your HVAC system last much longer, but it also can help lower your monthly utility bill by keeping your system energy efficient. Here are a few things that you can do to keep your HVAC system in tip-top shape for 2016!
Replace Your Filter
If it has been a few months since you have replaced your air filter, you may want to check if it needs a new one. If you routinely use your HVAC on a daily basis, you will want to change your air filter at least every three months. If you intermittently use your HVAC system, once or twice a year is recommended.
The New Year is the perfect time to call your local HVAC expert for an annual inspection. Getting a regular inspection by a professional can help prevent costly issues from arising throughout the year. They will be able to make suggestions for making your system run more efficiently, make any small adjustments or repairs, and check your system for safe operation.
Carbon Monoxide Detector
New Year’s Day is the perfect time to replace out your carbon monoxide detector’s batteries. Perform a function test it to ensure it is running properly. Your carbon monoxide detector is necessary to keep your family safe during the cold winter season.
Old HVAC? Consider Replacement
If your HVAC system is between 15-20 years old, you may want to consider replacing your HVAC system and installing a new one. Older models are much less energy efficient and can be costing you much more per month than a newer system.
