Your HVAC New Year’s Resolutions

Posted on: February 1, 2021

The start of a new year is a great time to develop good HVAC ownership habits to keep your heating and cooling systems operating at optimal efficiency. The HVAC maintenance experts at Jacob Heating & Air Conditioning have put together some tips to help you maintain your home’s comfort year-round:

Replace Your Filters Regularly

Your HVAC system’s filters help improve the air quality in your home, and dirty filters make your system work harder to do its job. You should change your filters every 1-3 months, depending on if you have pets or anyone in your family suffers from allergies.

Plan Your Preventive Maintenance Schedule

It’s easy to forget HVAC maintenance when everything is running smoothly. Take the hassle out of remembering seasonal tune-ups by signing up for a convenient scheduled maintenance plan.

Inspect Your Ducts for Leaks

You can do this yourself, if you feel comfortable. Inspect your ductwork for any signs of damage or leaks and repair the problems with duct tape. If you find substantial damage, it’s best to call a professional.

Upgrade Your Thermostat

Programmable and smart thermostats enable you to optimize how your HVAC system operates, which increases your energy efficiency and helps you save money on your monthly utility bills.

Check Your Insulation

Check the rooms in your house for drafts, and inspect your weather stripping and the seals around your windows. Even the best-maintained HVAC system will struggle to heat and cool a poorly insulated home.

Find a Trustworthy HVAC Professional

It’s never a good idea to wait until your HVAC system breaks down before you start researching heating and air companies. The HVAC experts at Jacob Heating & Air can help you meet your goals for the new year. Contact us at (386) 337-3502 today.
