The importance of maintaining your HVAC System.
What is a HVAC System? HVAC stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. It is a system that is designed to control the inside environment of a home depending on the climate outside. The system achieves this through heating or cooling an indoor space. Whether you are heating or cooling your house, it works the same way, air passes through the ducts and into each room. As we plan our summer stay-cations, storing our winter wardrobe away, we should also keep in mind to prepare our HVAC unit for the summer. It is spring after all, the perfect time to prepare your home’s HVAC system for the summer. Let me tell you, you do not want to be that person whose AC unit breaks down in the middle of the hottest week, leaving you helpless as you are on a HVAC company’s waiting list. I’ve been there and as you can imagine, it was a horrible experience! How can I prepare my HVAC System? One effective way to prepare your HVAC system is to call a HVAC technician. Their training and experience make them ideal for running diagnosis to fix any problems that may occur. Another critical tip is to change your air filter every 90 days. This way, the HVAC Unit uses less energy to keep your home cool or warm. This will also save you a lot of money on your hydro bill. Ensuring you clear any dust or debris from the outside unit is other way to prepare your HVAC system. This will help keep your filter clean and less dust in your home. Over the winter months, your HVAC system will have collected buildup of dirt and debris. You can hire a professional duct cleaner to remove all the dust and debris from the ducts so you and your loved ones can breathe in clean air. These tips and tricks will save you a lot of money as well as a lot of headaches in the future.
