The New Year brings new beginnings and new opportunities. Everyone is making goals and set on improving their lives. This year, why not bring that same enthusiasm for your HVAC equipment and see how it can positively affect your life and well-being? Here are a few New Year’s resolutions and tips to help you maintain a healthy HVAC system.
Upgrade Your Thermostat
One way to enhance your home’s comfort, efficiency and overall HVAC health is by making the switch to a programmable or smart thermostat. These devices offer a tailored approach to temperature control, aligning seamlessly with your lifestyle and maximizing both comfort and energy savings. The potential to save approximately 2 percent on your energy bill for each degree adjustment is a compelling incentive.
Furthermore, with a smart or programmable thermostat, you can ensure that your HVAC system operates efficiently by avoiding unnecessary strain from frequent and abrupt temperature changes. Our team of HVAC professionals is ready to assist you with the installation process, making the transition to a more intelligent and energy-efficient thermostat hassle-free!
Regular maintenance, with a minimum of once per year, is a good way to improve your HVAC system’s health, but seasonal tune-ups also help significantly. Seasonal tune-ups extend your system’s lifespan and ensure it’s always operating a peak efficiency and effectiveness. Seasonal tune-ups by a reliable HVAC technician guarantee your system is ready for the upcoming season, reducing the likelihood of unexpected breakdowns and emergencies.
Get a Protection Plan
The best way to stay on top of regular maintenance and ensure your system is always operating effectively and efficiently is to have a Delta Protection Plan. For a low monthly fee, you get total peace of mind knowing that your HVAC equipment will always be taken care of. With a Protection Plan, you get free annual inspections. This is a requirement of maintaining your manufacturer’s warranty, plus it will help keep your system working at its best. There are other major benefits of having a plan, including:
- Discounts on parts
- Labour coverage
- Priority service
- Discounts on consumables
Invest in a More Efficient System
Perhaps this year is the time to replace your old HVAC system. The typical lifespan of most HVAC systems is approximately 10-15 years. If your current system falls within this age range – or is even older – now could be the time to upgrade. While a new system will be more efficient than your outdated one, consider investing in a high-efficiency model. A high-efficiency system will offer more energy savings and lower your environmental impact. Plus, you’ll have a new and improved system with an extended lifespan and a warranty.
Modern HVAC systems, like heat pumps, incorporate cutting-edge technologies that optimize energy efficiency, elevate air filtration capabilities, and enhance overall performance. Right now, you could qualify for heat pump grants and rebates to help you save big on installation costs.
