The Christmas season is upon us and no doubt you’ve been making a list and checking it twice as you prepare to celebrate the season with your loved ones. Even if your holiday shopping is nearly done, you may want to consider adding a gift or two for one more: your HVAC unit. It works hard all year in order to maintain a comfortable living environment throughout your home and just a little appreciation will go a long way.
Here are a few things your HVAC system might wish for if it could submit its own list this Christmas…
A new set of filters – the good ones. HEPA filters work to remove dust, allergens and other particulates from the air entering your home. This not only creates a more comfortable living environment, but helps to cultivate a healthier atmosphere as well, allowing you to breathe easy as you enjoy the holiday season.
Some TLC for the blower compartment. As your HVAC unit performs it’s duties, the blower compartment can begin to accumulate small dust and debris. Over time, this can begin to clog the blower wheel which can have a negative impact on utility bills and lessen the overall effectiveness of your unit. Keeping the compartment clean can help to lower energy costs over time while also helping to prolong the lifespan of your HVAC unit.
Regular tune-ups. Investing in regular HVAC maintenance can also help to prolong the life and efficiency of your HVAC unit. It allows the wiring and other mechanical parts to be inspected regularly and allows small issues to be addressed, before they can develop into large-scale concerns. It can also help to protect your warranty, provided the furnace repair work is done by a certified technician. They’ll know the needs of your particular unit and will be able to provide an accurate assessment of what it may need in order to function at its best.
A whole-house dehumidifier. A dehumidifier helps to eliminate excess moisture in the air, helping to diminish the possibility of mold as the air circulates throughout your home. This not only extends the life of the unit, but is a smart, health-conscious choice as well. There are solutions available for almost any home, regardless of size or shape.
While we don’t normally think of our HVAC system when we think of Christmas, a few small investments can go a long way in maintaining a comfortable and healthy environment throughout your home this season.
