Posted on: January 31, 2018

Taking care of your HVAC system is crucial to its health. Though you might be thinking you are taking the very best care to heat and cool your home adequately, you could be taking years off your machine, costing you unnecessary money in the end. So here are just some of the top home HVAC mistakes you’ll want to avoid. 

adjusting your home thermostatBlocking Vents and Shutting Doors

By closing off rooms, and blocking vents with furniture and drapes – you are not allowing your home to get even heating.

By closing your doors, you are disrupting how air gets back to your furnace, causing your system to work harder and adding wear and tear to it. By keeping your doors open, you are allowing the air to flow freely as it should.

Overly Using Your Thermostat

It might seem like the best way to get your home to the perfect temperature is by just going straight to the thermostat, but rapid changes in temperature are harmful to your system.

It will still take the same amount of time to get to your desired comfort level while wasting more energy. Your best bet is to perfect home comfort is to upgrade to a programmable thermostat.

Ignoring Your Filters

Your air filters are not only a good source of good air quality, but it also a great way to ensure your home HVAC system is working at top efficiency. When you leave dirty, unchanged filters in your HVAC, it has to work through all the dust and debris resulting in wear on your system and poor air quality and temperature control.

If you are prone to allergies, you’ll want to ensure your filters are working to help keep air quality high.

Not Getting Maintenance

If you want to make the very most out of your HVAC system, you’ll want to get it routinely checked by a professional. By scheduling maintenance, you can spot little issues and fixes before they big ones, saving you money in the long run.

With the proper support, you can put years on your HVAC.
