The new year is finally here! The beginning of the year is a great time for everyone to evaluate their lives and set new goals and resolutions for themselves.

The beginning of the year is a great time to make sure you get maintenance scheduled for your home. Regular maintenance on your HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems, as well as your appliances, will help you save money in the long run. Continuing to schedule maintenance on your home’s systems every new year will help ensure that your home is operating as it should be!
Check HVAC refrigerant
Another thing all homeowners should do at the beginning of the new year, or at least before the summer months, is to check the refrigerant levels of your HVAC system. Without proper refrigerant levels in your air conditioner, your system cannot produce cold air. 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, including 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, 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!
Evaluate your home’s air quality
Once you have done maintenance on your HVAC system and changed out the filter, it’s a smart idea to evaluate your home’s indoor air quality to ensure it’s healthy and safe. If testing your home’s air quality is something you want to do, be sure to contact a ServiceOne heating and cooling technician today!
The new year is a great time to start getting ahead on all of the small things you need to do. By scheduling maintenance, and performing other tasks around your home, you can end up saving yourself lots of money on both energy bills and repairs all year long.
