Ideas for Better Heating and Air Conditioning This Year


As the year starts, you’re probably already busy with plans for what you want to achieve. Or maybe you feel a bit overwhelmed with the idea of coming up with lists and goals. Wherever you stand when it comes to how you’re looking at the year ahead, we’d like to offer our help when it comes to HVAC Service in Charleston, SC. You’ve got a year of heating and cooling ahead, and we want yours to be the best it can. 

Let’s get started with our best ideas from heating and air conditioning improvements this year.

Join a maintenance plan and stick to the schedule.

A maintenance plan with a professional HVAC company is the easiest way to get the best from your heating and cooling all year long. With maintenance, you’ll receive a spring inspection and tune-up for your AC, and then your heater will get the same treatment in fall.

This ensures peak performance and efficiency, extends equipment life, and eliminates most future repairs. We have our special Moose Plan to meet our customers’ needs. Sign up now and you’ll receive additional membership benefits.

Upgrade to a Wi-Fi smart thermostat.

Smart homes are starting to take over, and if you don’t have a Wi-Fi thermostat with smart capabilities, you’re missing out on some terrific benefits. These advanced thermostats give you more control over your home’s climate, and the thermostats do most of the work!

The smart programming allows these modern miracles to provide ideal comfort while cutting back on your bills. And you can control your home’s climate from almost anywhere.

Replace outdated equipment.

Homeowners often hold onto aged HVAC equipment that should’ve been replaced years ago. As a result, they have worse comfort and higher bills.

Find out the age of your AC and heating system. Is either (or both) over their manufacturer’s service life estimate? If so, we recommend you use the first stretch of mild weather to arrange for a replacement. Our technicians can help determine when it’s time for a new unit and which one is best for your needs.

Upgrade to high-efficiency equipment.

If you’re planning to replace parts of your HVAC system, look into getting high-efficiency equipment such as a condensing furnace or multi-stage compressor air conditioner/heat pump. Although these units are more expensive to purchase upfront, they create large savings over the years and distribute more even heating and cooling. They’ll also help you do your part to benefit the environment.

Keep up with filter changes.

This is an easy one: make sure you change out the air filter in your HVAC system regularly, every 1–3 months. This will keep the HVAC system working at its best without obstructions and extra strain that can affect both performance and efficiency. 

Learn thermostat best practices.

Find out the best energy-saving settings for your thermostat for around the year. (A smart thermostat makes this even easier!) For example, in winter, aim for a daytime setting of 68°F when people are home. In summer, set the thermostat to 78°F during the day. Even a few degrees of difference will lower your energy bills.
