3 Things HVAC Professionals Wish You Knew

Doctors want you to eat well and exercise, moms want you to go to bed at a decent hour and look both ways before crossing the street, and your HVAC professional wants you to know some basic heating and cooling information. While the HVAC unit is one of the most important and expensive components of a home to replace and repair, many homeowners neglect basic maintenance and cause unwitting damage. Here are a few things your HVAC professional wishes you would consider:

  • A lot of the damage and repairs they see when they come to your home could have been avoided. By scheduling regular seasonal maintenance on your HVAC unit, many small issues can be fixed and patched to avoid larger, more costly issues. A unit that is properly serviced will often last much longer than one that has not undergone regular maintenance.
  • Even though your unit works, it may not be properly suited for your home and may need to be replaced. Many home and business owners are paying as much as double what they should be paying on their monthly utility bills because of old or outdated HVAC units. The money saved by replacing your unit, both on utility bills as well as repairs and maintenance, could be quickly recouped by installing a new, more efficient unit.
  • Bigger is not always better. A properly sized AC unit with properly sized and functioning ducts is crucial. Some customers assume when it is time to replace a unit, the biggest unit is always the best, but it is simply not true. Consult a local professional to find out which size is best for your needs.
