Homeowner Resolutions for 2021

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Can you recall the last time you scheduled maintenance for your home’s central heating and cooling unit? If you cannot, the new year is the time to pick up the phone and do so! Commonly mistaken for a repair appointment, a maintenance technician will come to your home and inspect every square inch of your HVAC unit to see if it’s in pristine working order.

If they notice that something seems to be falling by the wayside, they’ll be able to catch and repair it before it leads to a much larger problem down the road. Additionally, they’ll be able to let you know about the status of your HVAC unit and if you should consider replacing it in the years (or months) to come.

Don’t Put Off Plumbing Repairs

Unfortunately, there’s a common trend among homeowners to put off plumbing repairs when needed. Whether you have a leaky faucet or a noisy water heater, nothing should be overlooked when it comes to your humble abode’s plumbing. Doing so could lead to a much more dangerous situation in the future.

Furthermore, neglecting plumbing repairs can increase your water bills (if you have a leak) and can even put your living space at risk for a potential flood — something that you’ll want to avoid at all costs since most water damage is irreversible.

Change Your HVAC Filter

To help keep your central comfort unit in good spirits, you’ll want to replace the filter every so often — not every year (or not at all). As it turns out, the filter is one of the most vital parts of your HVAC system’s anatomy. Without a filter, your unit would be bogged down by dust, dirt, and other airborne contaminants.

When this happens, not only will you be breathing that in, but these contaminants can bog down your unit, make it work twice as hard, and ultimately lead to an extensive repair — or replacement of your unit altogether. On average, you should replace your unit’s filter about every 60 days (or sooner) to reap the benefits of an efficient HVAC system, as well as clean indoor air.
