It’s time to scribble down New Year’s resolutions on our brand-new planners. But hey, let’s not forget about our heating system!
Yes, it’s time to turn up the heat on those New Year’s resolutions! Let’s dive into some hot tips to keep your furnace running like a champ in 2024.
1. Change Your Air Filters Regularly
This is like the “drink more water” of heating system care. It’s simple but often overlooked. Your furnace’s air filter is constantly battling dust and debris. You can help it out! Make a resolution to change your filters regularly to keep your system running smoothly.
2. Schedule Routine Tune-Ups
Remember how we promise ourselves to go for regular health check-ups but often don’t? Well, your heating system needs its check-ups too. Regular maintenance by a professional can keep those pesky and costly breakdowns at bay. Plus, it’s always better to catch issues before your furnace decides to take a winter break. Get a full and comprehensive tune-up today!
3. Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
Your furnace is more than a heat provider; it’s part of your home’s respiratory system. Consider adding humidifiers or air purifiers to the mix. For example, the Dust Free® Carbon Air Purifier is a 100% ozone-free system that uses a combination of carbon and germicidal UV-C light technology to purify the air and surfaces in your home’s heating and cooling system. Trust us, your lungs will thank you during those dry winter months.
4. Add Zoning Systems
Here’s another possible New Year’s resolution depending on who’s living in your home. Ever fought over the thermostat with someone who thinks 65 degrees is tropical? Zoning systems allow different temperatures in different rooms. Finally, a diplomatic solution to the age-old thermostat wars!
5. Upgrade Your Heating System
If your furnace is older than your favorite classic movie, it might be time for an upgrade. Install a new furnace in your home to improve energy-efficiency, saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint. It’s like swapping your old flip phone for a smartphone. Now that’s a New Year’s resolution!
6. Adjust Your Thermostat
Sometimes, the simplest actions make the biggest difference. Adjusting your thermostat by even a few degrees can save energy and money. In fact, you can save approximately 10% a month on your heating bill by turning down the thermostat for 8 hours each night. It’s the little things that count.
So there you have it, your 2024 heating resolutions. Here’s to a warm and wonderful year ahead. Happy New Year!
