Understanding Your HVAC System And What Can Go Wrong
Your HVAC system makes your home tolerable. It provides comfort during the frigid winters and steamy hot summers. It also consumes massive amounts of energy.
Think of the money you spend on the equipment and operation of the system as an investment. The more efficiently your system operates, the less energy it will consume, saving you money on the utility bill.
There are also a few things to watch for as you care for your HVAC system. Some things can be monitored and remedied yourself. Some may serve as signs that you’ll need to contact an HVAC specialist.
Keep Filters Clean
A dirty filter makes your system need to work harder in order to produce desired results. Make sure that you stay on schedule changing your filters. If it’s a permanent filter, make sure to clean it on a regular basis. When they are dirty enough, they can prevent the system from working properly.
Flip Your Breakers
If your HVAC system goes unresponsive, it may not be as grim as it originally seems. Check your breaker box. You may need to flip the breaker back on. It’s a pretty simple solution. If it routinely trips, it could be the symptom of a larger problem that needs to be checked, however.
Check Your Thermostat
When your HVAC system is on the fritz, it’s not an uncommon reaction to see the dollar signs dancing in your head. The truth is that the problems may stem from a less expensive part within the system – your thermostat. Your HVAC specialist should be able to tell you what’s wrong.
Check The Dampers
If you have one room that never heats or cools quite right, you may have an issue with the dampers in your system. They control the airflow through your ductwork, and may need to be balanced again. This is something that your HVAC specialist can help you with.
