It’s important to all of us that we keep our home comfortable for our family. Your HVAC system is an important component in keeping the air in your home clean and at a comfortable temperature. To keep the HVAC system in your Annapolis, Maryland, home running efficiently, it’s important to address issues immediately. An HVAC system that’s running efficiently will work better, last longer and cost less.
One of the biggest threats to an HVAC system is largely out of your control. Harsh weather can affect the longevity of your HVAC system. When winter weather hits, take care to inspect any outside units for damage. Clear away snow and debris from the unit so that it can work appropriately. Snow and ice buildup in or on the unit can cause the system to freeze up and stop working, or it may bend critical components.
In a system containing ductwork, you should have a professional monitor for any leaks in the ducts. Leaks cause the system to work harder, which decreases efficiency and longevity. You’ll likely notice your unit working harder and being less effective. As a result, you’ll see a spike in your heating bills. Repair any leaks immediately to keep you HVAC system in proper working condition.
Lack of Maintenance
Neglecting routine maintenance on your HVAC system can result in damage along with higher utility bills and future repairs. We recommend that you get your system serviced once a year so that a service technician can make sure it’s working as it should to maintain your family’s comfort. The service technician will replace worn-out parts, clean out any debris, and make sure all components are working.
