Not taking proper care of your HVAC system can have serious consequences. Often, a problem that would have been relatively easy, and affordable, to fix can become a significant issue if it goes unmanaged for an extended time, leaving you to pay the extra cost! Here are some things to consider when it comes to proper heating and AC system management.
How Much Are You Being Charged on Your Bill?
If you are not running your heating or air cooling unit substantially more than usual, but notice a staggering increase in your bill when it comes, there is a definite issue with your HVAC system.
A well-maintained HVAC system won't use more energy than is strictly necessary to heat or cool your home so that it won't raise the cost of your bill. An AC or heating system that is not adequately maintained, however, will require more power to do the same job, thus causing your bill to go up.
If this is a problem you are facing, call a local HVAC contractor. It may be that your unit is just in need of a cleaning, or some routine checks. Or it may be that you have a more significant problem on your hands that needs to be addressed as quickly as possible. In either case, regular maintenance and system management can help bring your bill back down to normal.
Are You Encountering Problems in Your Home Caused by Dust?
It's no secret that dust can irritate health issues such as allergies, fatigue, and respiratory problems such as asthma. Dust can also give your home an unpleasant appearance or smell.
Did you know that the air you are breathing in your home, from your own AC unit, can be filled with dust particles that you are breathing in every day? If your HVAC system doesn’t receive regular maintenance work, it could be pumping dust and other allergens right into your home.
To protect the air quality in your home, have a professional come out to perform routine duct cleanings every 3 to 5 years, and change your filter every 6 to 9 months. A dirty air filter can restrict airflow, as well as allow pesticides, allergens, and other irritants to pollute the air around you. Make sure to have a professional check your HVAC system at least once a year, to make sure it is clean and running the way it should.
