The start of a new year is the perfect time to ensure your home’s HVAC system is ready to provide comfort and efficiency throughout the seasons. The experts at Standard are here with a checklist to help you kick off the year with a well-maintained heating and cooling system!

Schedule Professional Maintenance

The first step to a well-functioning HVAC system that will last you all year is a professional inspection. Schedule an appointment for an HVAC technician to perform a thorough assessment, cleaning, and tune-up to detect potential issues. Not only will your system be in tip-top shape, but you will have peace of mind, which is priceless!

Check and Replace Air Filters

Air filters are often forgotten about, but they are essential for optimal airflow and indoor air quality. Start the year fresh by inspecting and replacing dirty or clogged filters to keep the air in your home clean and safe for your family.

Inspect Thermostat Settings

Now is the perfect time to double-check that your thermostat settings are aligned with your comfort needs and energy-saving goals. Consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat for precise temperature control and scheduling. Programmable thermostats are also great for saving money on energy costs!

Evaluate Insulation and Sealing

Don’t overlook insulation weather stripping. As the year begins, check around doors, windows, and other potential gaps to prevent heat loss and maintain energy efficiency. Proper insulation is key to keeping your home cozy – especially in the winter months.

Consider Smart Upgrades

Home comfort technology is advancing, and this may be the year to upgrade! Explore smart HVAC technologies such as zoning systems and automated controls that can further optimize your system’s performance. These options offer enhancing comfort and potential energy savings.

Ensuring your heating and cooling systems are in top shape at the beginning of the year sets the tone for a comfortable and cost-effective home environment. By following this checklist, you can start 2024 on the right track!
