2023 is officially here! Every year, there are many things homeowners must do to keep their homes comfortable. However, there are additional measures homeowners can take to make sure they are saving money as well.
At ServiceOne, we offer a variety of home services to make sure your home is safe and comfortable at all times during the year. As we start this new year, now is a great time to set up a plan for your home. Below, we go over some things you can start doing for your home right now to prepare for 2023!
Check HVAC refrigerant
Something all homeowners should do at the beginning of the new year, or at least before the summer months, is check the refrigerant levels of their HVAC system. Your system cannot produce cold air without proper refrigerant levels in your air conditioner. Checking this before the summer months will help ensure your air conditioning system is ready whenever you need it!
Clean / Replace HVAC filter
Another great way to start your year is by making sure your home’s air quality is in good shape. You can certainly tell the difference in your home’s air whenever you clean or replace your HVAC air filter! It’s recommended that homeowners change their HVAC air filter at least once every three months, but there are certain factors to consider which might change that time frame, such as the type of air filter you have, the number of pets in your home, allergies and more.
Check and replace batteries
Another important thing to do at the start of the new year is to check and make sure that your fire and carbon monoxide detectors have working batteries. This is something that homeowners can often forget about, however, it is very important to help keep you and your home safe. If you can’t remember the last time you changed your batteries, it’s a good idea to just go ahead and change them out!
Cut down on energy use
Just as you would for anything else, homeowners can also make goals for their homes! One good goal could be cutting down on your home’s energy use, which would lower your utility bills while also helping the environment. From remembering to turn off lights to conserving more water, the start of the year is the perfect time to set the goal of saving more energy in your home!
Improve your indoor air quality
Lastly, make your indoor air quality a priority this year! Not only does focusing on clean air improve the comfort of your home, but it can also help you live healthier in your home as well. As mentioned above, changing your home’s HVAC filter is an easy step to help improve your home’s indoor air quality. However, there are also other indoor air quality products that we offer at ServiceOne, such as UV air purifiers and whole home humidifiers, that can help improve the quality of the air you breathe each and every day!
As we begin this new year, now is the time to get ahead on everything you need to do for your home! Keep these tips in mind as we move through 2023.
