3 Things You Didn't Know About Your HVAC Unit
Thursday, October 13, 2016

When it comes to heating and air conditioning, most people really just know the basics of how to make it work to keep their homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Here are 3 things you don’t know about your HVAC unit:

#1: Your System Needs TLC

An HVAC system doesn’t just run in a vacuum without any attention. They’re like cars in that they need care and maintenance to keep running in peak condition. Regular maintenance can help prevent issues down the road, improve energy efficiency, and help your heating and cooling system work more effectively to keep your home a more consistent temperature.

#2: There Are Simple DIY Steps You Can Take

Even if you’re not particularly handy, you can still help keep your HVAC units in good working order. One of the most important things you can do is to change the air filter regularly. The air filter helps improve the air quality in your home but, more importantly, it helps keep dirt and debris out of your heating and cooling system so it doesn’t experience extra wear and tear or possible breakdowns.

Keeping your system clean is another thing you can do yourself. Clearing dirt and debris off of the outside unit will help it run smoothly and prevent issues, and the same goes for the inside unit. While it takes a professional HVAC technician to do any in-depth service and maintenance, these simple steps will help keep it running smoothly.

#3: You Can See the Signs

Your system will tell you if there’s something wrong; it will show you the signs. Things like strange noises when the system is running and inconsistent temperatures are signals your system needs service.

You can also tell if something’s wrong if the air blowing out is the wrong temperature or if the thermostat setting doesn’t match the ambient temperature in the room. If these signs show up, call for service.

You don’t have to be an expert to have a better understanding of your HVAC unit. For information on regular maintenance or to identify issues with your heating and air conditioning system, contact our team of pros at All City Heat and Air today.

Needed an estimate on a new heat pump for an older home. I loved this company! They were completely professional and gave a very competitive estimate. They didn't offer the brand name I was looking for so I elected to go with another company for the work, but I would highly recommend these guys. They were happy to educate me about the questions I should be asking service providers, and even when I told them I would be going with another company, they still gave me a list of questions to ask the vendor. If I didn't demand Trane, I would have happily let this company perform the work. Just a great company.
