Start by Knowing How to Maintain the Equipment You Have

No matter the type of heating and cooling equipment you have, you want to regularly maintain it. Make sure to schedule regular maintenance for A/C’s, heat pumps, boilers, and furnaces. 

  • A/C Units: it’s best to check your A/C unit on an annual basis and — while the frequency of use determines the lifespan of a unit — most A/Cs have a lifespan of 12-15 years. And if you’re ready to replace an older or outdated system, it may be time to consider a more energy-efficient system like a heat pump. 
  • Boilers: they’re a quiet and efficient source of heat and a desirable system to have in your home, so you want to maintain them. By regularly checking all of the components throughout your house, you’ll help to keep your heat and water running smoothly.   
  • Furnaces: if you have a furnace, you want to adopt an annual maintenance routine. You can start by reducing clutter and consider installing a programmable thermostat.


Home Heating and Cooling Updates to Consider 

If you’ve been considering updating your heating and cooling system for a while, now may just be the perfect time to make it happen. And one reason homeowners decide to update their heating and cooling is to become more energy-efficient and save in the long run. 

If that sounds like the way to go, you can consider making the switch to a geothermal system.

Geothermal heat pumps are one of the most efficient options on the market because they rely on a stable heat source as their foundation and provide heating and cooling from a single unit. So if you’re looking to become more energy-efficient and reduce your carbon footprint, heat pumps might be worth considering. And if you’re planning to go this route, we recommend checking out our savings calculator to find out how much you’d save by making the switch!
