Making resolutions for the new year is something that we do so that we can hold ourselves accountable to the changes that we’d like to make in the new year, but they don’t have to be changes that simply reflect our weight, the amount of money we spend or who we spend our time with. Sometimes the resolutions that we make can be direct forms of responsibility that we take on to ensure that we are making the most of the equipment and tools that we have, that often go uncared for. One of the things that we suggest prioritizing with your New Year’s resolutions is your HVAC unit.

This particular unit provides you with comfort in your home when the Denver temperatures drop and when the summers become unbearable, so here are a few ways that you can start prioritizing the care that you give to your HVAC unit throughout the year.

Replace the Filter

The filters of your HVAC unit provide quality air through your home and also ensure that your unit is working as intended. Depending on the amount of people that live in your home, a number of pets that you have and any respiratory issues that you may need to tend to, switching your air filters may need to happen anywhere from every 3 months to every 6 months. Staying on top of changing your filter is something so incredibly easy, but it’s easy to put on the back burner. Make this one of the things that you will be more aware of this coming year.

Manage Your Temperature

When it comes to conserving energy, a lot of it comes from how frequently we are using our HVAC units. While there are times that the Denver weather calls for no less than blasting cool air from our air conditioning or making the most of the furnace during the below zero days, there are plenty of ways that you can manage how much you’re using your HVAC unit. This new year, consider how often you really need to be using your HVAC unit to feel comfortable in your home. Instead, switch over to using fans, opening windows, or installing a timed thermostat that will turn on and off as needed.
