Don’t forget your HVAC system this Christmas!

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas this week! With Christmas here so fast and the New Year a week away, it’s not uncommon for a homeowner to overlook their HVAC systems this time of year. In light of this, in order to help you give your HVAC systems the attention they need and deserve, we at Monroe Heating & Air put together the following list of some of the best gifts you can give your home comfort equipment this Christmas:

Thermostat Upgrades

If you haven’t already done so, you should consider giving yourself and your home the gift of peace of mind and convenience by investing in a smart thermostat this holiday season! Smart Thermostats are very affordable and easy to install. These cool gadgets enable you to optimize your system’s capacity, amounting to significant energy savings in very little. Furthermore, these higher-tech gadgets come with a ton of cool features, including system diagnostics, air filter replacement notifications, air quality monitoring features, Wi-Fi compatibility, Smart Home-friendly access and smartphone accessibility so a customer can adjust their settings from anywhere, on the fly, anytime.

Changing Air Filters

Dirty air filters can cause a host of problems that include everything from airflow blockage to breakdowns, to air quality problems and major system failure. Keeping them changed regularly will not only ensure better indoor air quality, but it will also lighten the load on your HVAC equipment as well. This will result in lower energy consumption and a decrease in wear and tear, which means longer and cheaper service life of your comfort systems.

Insulation Levels

Adequate insulation enables your HVAC systems to function efficiently by lowering the amount of work they are required to do by stopping treated air from rising out. If you haven’t done so recently, having a professional check your attic and basement’s insulation is a good idea. They can assess whether there’s a need to increase insulation or replace it.

Clean Outside Unit

Before and after the holidays is a good time to clean and remove unwanted dirt and other items on and within your outdoor unit. These types of impurities and debris can hinder a system’s performance and cause all sorts of expensive problems. This includes removing leaves, trash, dirt, and other debris from condensers. 

Check, Clean Air Ducts

Since dirt and other pollutants tend to accumulate inside our air ducts as they age, let this serve as a reminder to check your ductwork and possibly have it cleaned if necessary to prevent anything from forcing the system to have to work harder. When this is an issue, it also negatively impacts the quality of air circulating in the residence, causing unwanted odors to prevail and even lead to respiratory problems. 

Preventative Maintenance a Must

We say this a lot. Nonetheless, we do so for good reason: There’s simply no substitute for an HVAC system tune-up that comes complete with seasonal maintenance. Hiring one of our certified technicians to come over to ensure your HVAC system is working properly as part of a maintenance appointment enables them to troubleshoot for problems and avoid repairs and minor wear-and-tear.
