HVAC systems play a significant role in controlling and maintaining a healthy and comfortable environment in our homes. However, people frequently ask questions concerning the complexity of the many components in HVAC systems, HVAC accessories, HVAC services, and HVAC maintenance. Listed below are four frequently asked questions regarding HVAC systems.
How Often Should I Have My HVAC Unit Serviced?
It is important to schedule service for your HVAC unit at least once a year. You can also schedule service during times of excessive use, such as season changes when you’re running your cooling system during the hot summer months or your heating system during the cool winter months.
Why Is HVAC Maintenance Important?
HVAC maintenance is key in prolonging the life of your HVAC system. It also helps to ensure that your HVAC system is up to date, running smoothly and efficiently, allowing you to catch minor issues and repairs before they become major. Major HVAC issues can result in costly HVAC repairs or even replacement. Ultimately, scheduling and performing routine maintenance such as filter changes help you save time and money while maintaining a comfortable and healthy living environment.
How Often Should I Check and Change My Air Filter?
Checking and changing your HVAC’s air filter is one of the easiest and most important steps in HVAC maintenance. It’s recommended that you check it at least once a month while changing it every three months. Having a clean air filter improves the quality and circulation of air flowing through your home while increasing the efficiency of your HVAC unit.
How Can My HVAC Lower My Monthly Utility Bills?
Constantly running your HVAC system can result in higher utility bills, along with diminishing your HVAC’s life expectancy and efficiency. Simply running your HVAC system less frequently during the day and installing a smart or programmable thermostat can noticeably lower your utility bills. You can also lower your thermostat’s temperature by a few degrees in the winter and raise its temperature in the summer to reduce your monthly utility bills, prolong the life of your HVAC system, and ensure that your HVAC is running efficiently.
