Chances are you’re making at least one New Year’s resolution this year, and you’re not alone.  In fact, some experts estimate that almost half of Americans make at least one.[1]  However, recent research from the University of Scranton suggests that just eight percent of people actually accomplish their New Year’s goals.[2]

Whether you’re striving to live healthier, go green or save money in the new year, there are ways your home systems can play a role in achieving your goals.

Follow these tips from One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating® to make simple home improvements that keep you in that elite percent of the resolution-making population who lives up to their New Year’s resolutions.

  • Looking to get healthier in the New Year?  Don’t discount your quality of sleep.  Room temperature can play a role in how well a person sleeps.  While a typical recommendation is to keep the room between 65 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit, experts advise to set the temperature at a comfortable level, whatever that means to the sleeper.[3]
  • Trying to save money?  Install a programmable thermostat.  You can set pre-determined temperature levels that help save energy and improve your comfort.  When used properly, this device can help save residents about $150 annually.[4]
  • Want to help save the planet?  Get green by investing in energy-efficient appliances. According to Energy Star, the use of Energy Star products in 2009 reduced the equivalent greenhouse gases of 30 million cars.[5]
