Get Smart: 4 Resolutions to Make in 2021
OK, so you’ve made the decision to live your very best indoor life in 2021. Congrats! This comfort and joy all starts at home with your HVAC system. Try these professional resolutions to get the most out of your home living this year.
1. Invest in a smart thermostat.
While there’s certainly nothing wrong with relying on an old-school manual thermostat for your heating and cooling, upgrading to a smart thermostat can really boost your energy efficiency. Smart thermostats learn your living patterns and adjust your heating and cooling accordingly. They learn to turn on and shut off on their own, track your energy usage and can even be hooked up to Wi-Fi so you can make changes right from your mobile phone. Bottom line: Your home will become more energy efficient and your wallet will thank you.
2. Upgrade your IAQ system.
If we learned anything in 2020, it was to never take our health for granted. Thanks to the unwanted arrival of COVID-19, the majority of us stayed inside our homes more than usual last year. This means we spent more time breathing indoor air than ever. Unfortunately, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution ranks in the top five when it comes to environmental dangers. Don’t risk your family’s health. Keep your indoor air fresh and clean in 2021 with the addition of an indoor air quality system. Our team offers installation of purifiers, humidifiers, dehumidifiers and air filtration systems.
3. Consider adding zoning systems.
Homeowners with two-level homes or little-used rooms can benefit from zoning systems. Zoning systems rely on thermostats in every room so you can regulate temperatures. The thermostats are used in tandem with automatic dampers that are placed inside your duct system. The dampers control the airflow to the rooms you’re heating or cooling—while shutting off airflow to areas where you don’t need it. As a result, you’re always in total control of your comfort!
4. Ventilate properly.
While it’s a great idea to keep your home insulated and properly sealed, it can sometimes lead to poor ventilation inside of your home. The good news is you can still experience fresh air with the addition of energy recovery ventilators. These IAQ systems pull fresh air into your home while expelling stale air, which allows for perfect air circulation throughout your indoor space.
Don’t forget the two smartest tips you can follow each and every year:
- Change your filters every season.
- Schedule annual maintenance with Blue Ribbon.
