New Year's Heater Resolutions

January 19, 2024 | Blog

Start The Year Right With Trahan’s Heating & Cooling

A new year is the perfect time to make some resolutions for your home’s comfort. At Trahan’s Heating & Cooling, we believe in the power of furnace preventative maintenance. We’re here to share some New Year’s heating resolutions that will ensure your system runs efficiently all year long.

1. Commit To Regular Cleaning: A Fresh Start For Your Furnace

One of the simplest yet most effective ways to maintain your heater is by keeping it clean. Dust and debris can accumulate over time, hindering your unit’s efficiency. This year, make it a point to regularly clean around your unit.

For the internal components, it’s best to rely on professionals. Contact Trahan’s Heating & Cooling for a thorough cleaning that will keep your furnace in excellent shape.

2. Change Air Filters Regularly And Breathe Easy All Year

A key aspect of maintenance is changing the air filters. Clogged filters not only degrade air quality but also strain your system. This issue can lead to higher energy bills and potential repairs.

You can prevent these problems by changing your filters every one to three months, depending on usage. This simple step is a cornerstone of heater care and will keep your indoor air fresh and clean.

3. Embrace Modern Efficiency With A Heater Upgrade

If your furnace is consistently underperforming, it may not be able to adequately heat your home. A few signs you may need to consider upgrading to a more efficient model are:

  • The system is older than 15 years.
  • Your unit requires frequent repairs.
  • Energy costs are higher than usual.
  • The unit short cycles.
  • There is uneven heating across your home.
  • The machinery produces strange smells and sounds.

Newer heaters offer better efficiency and can significantly reduce your utility costs. Consult with our team to explore your options and find a system that fits your home’s needs.

4. Schedule Heating System Maintenance For Peak Performance

While DIY care is important, nothing beats professional maintenance. This year, make it a resolution to schedule at least one professional tune-up with Trahan’s Heating & Cooling.

Our experts will ensure your furnace is in optimal condition, identify potential issues and perform necessary adjustments. Regular maintenance is crucial for extending the lifespan of your system.

5. Learn How To Maintain Furnace

Understanding how your system works and what it needs can go a long way in maintaining it. This year, take some time to learn about your unit — its model, how it operates and the signs of potential issues.

Being well-informed can make it easier when it comes to deciding on your heating system maintenance and when to call in the experts.
