However, learning a few heathy habits that will help keep your systems in good shape can make all the difference in improving energy efficiency, extending the lifespan of your HVAC system and saving you money in the process. Consider these New Year’s resolutions from our experts at Sierra Air.Keep an HVAC FileIt’s easy to forget about calling your residential and commercial air conditioning contractors for routine maintenance and inspections. This new year, put together an HVAC file where you can keep all your important documents such as warranty information, receipts and even a calendar with scheduled service visits noted. This can be a great start to keeping your heating and cooling system in good shape and extending its life.Change Air FiltersIf you have a smartphone, set calendar alerts at least once every 30 to 90 days that remind you to check the filters on your HVAC system. Air filters can easily get clogged by dust and dirt when the units are running pretty much non-stop at certain times of the year. Giving your filters a quick visual check periodically will enhance your HVAC system’s performance and improve your indoor air quality as well.Sign Up for Regular MaintenanceReputable providers of air conditioning replacement services often offer maintenance programs for their clients.
