No one wants to deal with the heartbreak of an HVAC problem, especially on these bitter cold evenings. As such, rather than wait until something breaks, why don't you show your HVAC a little love this Valentine's Day. Since your HVAC system probably doesn’t want chocolate and roses, we’ve put together this list of 4 things you can do for it Valentine’s day instead!
1. Show Your HVAC Some Love by Replacing the Air Filters!
We talk about replacing your air filters a lot, but it really is one of the best ways to show your HVAC some love this Valentine's Day, and the most budget-friendly option. We recommend that you change your HVAC's air filters a minimum of every 3 months (more often if you're always in the house or live in a construction zone). If it's been a while since you last changed your air filter, now is a great time to do so. Not only will you breathe easier, but your HVAC will run more efficiently.
2. Show Your HVAC Some Love by Upgrading Your Thermostat
Looking for a gift that both you and your HVAC system will love this Valentine's Day? Then consider upgrading your thermostat to a SMART thermostat. Smart thermostats are designed to automatically increase or decrease your home's temperature based on factors that you can often control from your smartphone such as lifestyle, routines, or outdoor temperatures. A smart thermostat will not only reduce energy usage when you aren’t at home, but it'll lower your monthly energy bill as well. As a side bonus, it'll also extend the life of your HVAC system!
We'll discuss more reasons to upgrade to a smart thermostat in the near future.
3. Show Your HVAC Some Love by Adding an Air Purifier
Another gift your HVAC system will love this Valentine's day is the gift of an air purifier. While air filters do a fairly good job of catching dust and other airborne particles, an air purifier will help your system get rid of allergens, germs, and mold that can often cause respiratory problems. Considering the overwhelming concern right now with preventing respiratory illnesses thanks to Covid-19, an air purifier is a wonderful way to show your HVAC some love. Not only will the air you're breathing be cleaner, but it should help improve any allergy or asthma symptoms that may already exist.
4. Show Your HVAC Some Love by Scheduling an HVAC Tune-Up
Finally, what better way to show your HVAC some love than to schedule an HVAC tune-up? Consider it a "spa day" for your HVAC system. Considering how hard your HVAC works for you to keep you warm during the winter and cool during the summer, it deserves a little R&R so to speak.
This winter has been particularly cold, so we expect that many systems will show signs of wear and tear. With seasons about to shift, now is a great time to schedule a maintenance visit so that your system is in tip-top shape once temperatures start going up.
You may also want to consider giving the gift of an ongoing HVAC maintenance contract (as opposed to only calling us when something goes wrong). Having a contract gives you the advantage of convenient appointments, discounts on necessary repairs and parts, and the confidence in knowing that Choice HVAC has your HVAC system's back.
If you’re not sure where to start, we suggest that you schedule a tune-up by calling Choice HVAC a call at 919-435-2711, so we can make sure that everything is in working order. We are here to help make sure that your HVAC system feels the love this Valentine's Day. We’ll ensure everything is operating as it should, keep you warm, safe, and happy all season through.
