When making our New Year’s resolutions for the coming year, it’s easy to focus on areas of our lives that are most important to us — like our health, finances, career, or personal relationships. While these are important, it’s equally as important to focus on the home investments that help you to stay comfortable and safe throughout the year (hi air conditioning system!). When it comes to keeping your AC working efficiently throughout 2017 and beyond, there are small steps you can take to keep it in top shape. Read on to learn the resolutions we’re making for our air conditioning systems, and why you should add them to your list too!
Change Air Filters Regularly
One of the easiest resolutions you can make for your AC is to change the air filters regularly. If you are like many people, you may not change them until they are visibly dirty, but it is better for your system if you replace them monthly and before they show signs of dander, dirt, dust and the like. This will help you to reduce unnecessary wear and tear on your HVAC system and can promote great indoor air quality — something that can improve your health in the process!

Repair Your System as Soon as Possible
Many homeowners tend to neglect to schedule repair service for a minor repair issue, and this inevitably means that the issue will turn into a larger and more costly one to repair. In addition to increased repair costs, delaying the repair of a broken system can result in increased energy costs and unnecessary wear on the system. Do you and your AC a favor — if you need a repair, don’t put it off!
