With Christmas here tomorrow and the New Year right around the corner, a week away, it can be easy to overlook our HVAC systems this time of year. Because of this, in order to give your heating and cooling equipment the attention it needs and deserves, we at Lancaster Furnace & Air Conditioning put together a list of some of the best gifts you can give your home comfort equipment this Christmas:

Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat

For those who haven’t already done so, you should think about giving yourself and your home the gift of convenience and peace of mind by investing in a smart thermostat! Smart Thermostats are very economical and easy to install. They enable you to optimize your system’s capacity, adding up to significant energy savings in no time. Moreover, these higher-tech gadgets come with a ton of cool features, including air filter replacement notifications, air quality monitoring features, system diagnostics, Wi-Fi compatibility, Smart Home-friendly and smartphone accessibility so a homeowner can adjust their settings from anywhere, anytime, on the fly.

Changing Air Filters

Old air filters can cause a ton of problems that range from airflow blockage to breakdowns and major system failure. Replacing them regularly will not only ensure better indoor air quality, but it will also lessen the load on your unit as well. This will result in lower energy consumption and a decrease in wear and tear, which means longer and cheaper service life of your comfort systems.

Checking Insulation Levels

Proper insulation enables your heating and cooling systems to function efficiently by lowering the amount of work they have to do by preventing treated air from rising out. If you haven’t done so recently, having a professional check your attic and basement’s insulation is a good idea. They can assess whether there’s a need to increase insulation or replace it.

Clear Outdoor Unit

Winter is a good time to remember to clean and remove unwanted elements on and within a home’s outdoor unit. These types of things can hinder a system’s performance and cause all sorts of expensive problems. This includes removing leaves, trash, dirt, and other debris from condensers. 

Check Your Air Ducts

Because dirt and other pollutants tend to accumulate inside our air ducts as they age, let this serve as a reminder to check your ductwork and possibly have it cleaned if necessary to prevent anything from forcing the system to have to work harder. When this is an issue, it also negatively impacts the quality of air circulating in the residence, causing unwanted odors to prevail and even lead to respiratory problems. 

Get an HVAC Tune-up

We say this a lot. Nonetheless, we do so for good reason: There’s simply no substitute for an HVAC system tune-up that comes complete with seasonal maintenance. Hiring one of our certified technicians to come over to ensure your HVAC system is working properly as part of a maintenance appointment enables them to troubleshoot for problems and avoid repairs and minor wear-and-tear.
