Add These HVAC New Year’s Resolutions to Your List

HVAC New Years Resolutions

How often do you actually stick to your New Year’s resolutions? Though some have the resolve it takes to remain steadfast in accomplishing their goals, many others fall a bit short. The good news is now that 2017 is right around the corner, you have a new chance to make some changes for the better. Why not make a resolution to save money by being a little better to your HVAC system? Below, we’ll tell you which New Year’s resolutions you can adopt this year to keep your home comfortable while cutting back on energy costs.

HVAC New Year’s Resolutions

Here are just a few of our favorite HVAC New Year’s resolutions that can help you take better care of your heating and cooling system:

Invest in a programmable thermostat.

If you don’t already have a smart or programmable thermostat, make 2017 the year that you finally invest in one. A programmable thermostat helps you cut down on energy costs by allowing you to run your heater and air conditioner more efficiently. You can program your thermostat for your preferred temperature while you and your family are at home, and then switch it to a more energy-efficient setting while you are away. These devices help you

Schedule your annual HVAC maintenance visit.

Another way that you can resolve to be good to your HVAC system in the new year is by scheduling an annual furnace and AC maintenance visit with your trusted Los Angeles HVAC company. Many homeowners do not worry about HVAC maintenance until something breaks down. However, an annual tune-up will help promote a long and healthy life for your AC and furnace equipment and keep your system running efficiently. During the tune-up, an experienced HVAC technician will clean and lubricate your system’s parts while checking for any repair needs. This is the best way to ensure year-round efficiency. Not to mention, this annual tune-up allows you to take care of repair needs as soon as they arise, instead of waiting until more costly repairs are needed.

Keep outdoor HVAC unit free of foliage and debris.

Though lawn maintenance may not be your idea of a good time, it is important to maintain the foliage around your outdoor HVAC unit. Any leaves, branches, or other debris near the unit can cause an obstruction. To be on the safe side, keep all bushes, shrubs, branches, grass, and other foliage clear within about 2 feet of the unit in each direction. This will not only help ensure that the greenery does not interfere with your HVAC system’s operation, but it will also provide enough space for an HVAC technician to work on the unit if necessary.

If you need help sticking to one of the HVAC New Year’s resolutions we’ve discussed here, we would be happy to help! Whether you need to schedule your annual tune-up, find the best air filter, or learn more about indoor air quality products, our HVAC experts are here to help.

Prolong HVAC Unit LIfe

Have you ever heard the phrase, “prevention is the best medicine”? Well, the same is true for your HVAC system. Just like your vehicle needs a regular oil change and routine inspection, your HVAC system needs to be inspected, cleaned, and lubricated at least once a year. A maintenance agreement makes this process easy and hassle free, helping you keep your air conditioning and heating system well maintained and working efficiently throughout the year. Below, we’ll discuss how a Maintenance Agreement from Brody Pennell can benefit you as a homeowner.

With a maintenance agreement, Brody Pennell customers are also able to easily maintain and validate manufacturer’s warranties on their heating and cooling equipment. In addition, this maintenance agreement includes warranties on all parts, labor, and repairs completed under the agreement for 12 months.

In the end, one of the greatest benefits that the maintenance agreement can offer is convenience. Homeowners no longer have to worry about maintaining their HVAC system or whether or not their system needs repairs. The maintenance agreement offers improved comfort and reliability as a trained HVAC technician from Brody Pennell is inspecting your system to ensure that it’s working properly and efficiently. Yet another convenience that the agreement offers is extended appointment times that better fit your schedule.
