When you own a home, you will want it to be comfortable to live in. One of the most important things you can do is to check the HVAC system. This will allow you to keep your home at the designated temperature that you choose. Keeping it warm in the winter and cool in the summer will help it to be more enjoyable as well.
The first thing you should inspect for the HVAC system is the filter. The filter will collect dust, dirt, and pollutants that are in the air of the home. This will allow for cleaner air in the home for you and your family. On a regular basis, make sure to inspect the filter so it is clear from any clogs or dirt. When it is recommended, make sure to replace the filter. This can also help keep the HVAC system operating efficiently. Also remember to never run the system without a filter in it. This will result in the dirt and dust traveling through it, and doing damage to it as well.
The ductwork is another part that should be inspected and cleaned. If there is damage to it, or it is dirty, then the air cannot move efficiently through the ductwork and back into your home. The ductwork should be cleaned to remove any buildup of dust and other debris. If you notice that the monthly energy bill has increased, it could mean an issue for the ductwork.
Also remember to inspect the thermostat. If the temperature is set differently than the actual temperature, it could mean the air produced is being wasted. Over time this can lead to a more serious issue, so make sure to contact us so we can inspect the HVAC system for you, before you need to switch to the furnace.
