One of the most common questions we get from our customers is “What’s an HVAC?”. This is a perfectly reasonable question, because most people don’t realize it’s actually an acronym that stands for “heating, ventilation, and air conditioning”. Most of you have some aspect of HVAC in your home and and didn’t even realize it! That being said, as a homeowner, part of your responsibility is to ensure that your building’s HVAC unit is in the best possible condition year round.
The Upside to Expert HVAC Services
Don’t get caught up in thinking that the only time you need to call an HVAC specialist is when something’s not working. If you don’t already have a company or specialist on call for when things go wrong, now is a perfect time to find someone. Maintenance and inspection are just as important to the function of your HVAC unit as the initial installation or any type of repair.
Air Conditioning That Functions When You Need It Most
Living in Southern California, air conditioning is something that any household can benefit from. It’s a core aspect of your HVAC unit, and its proper function is so important to your comfort. If you don’t have AC in your home, then having an HVAC unit installed is also something worth considering. Since every home is built different, there are different types of AC units to accommodate your particular setup. Beyond installation, maintenance of all the various components is important. There are so many different parts, including the filter, condenser, evaporator, and refrigerant just to name a few. If any one of them stops working, it can impact your comfort at home during the summer months.
Save On Energy Costs
Another reason why the maintenance is so important is because a properly working HVAC unit will actually help keep costs down. How so? Well, any cost associated with repair or replacement goes without saying, but there’s actually more to it than that. If your home has a central heating and air conditioning system, the air ducts that run throughout your home all have filters which work to keep the air in your home as clean as possible.
When those filters begin to congest, whether it’s from AC or heat, that means air doesn’t’ travel as freely throughout the home. To compensate the HVAC unit as a whole needs to expel more energy to help reach the desired temperature. If you’re trying to change the temperature in a singular room, this might not seem like such a big deal. However, when you’re trying to cool or heat your entire home with this problem, the amount of energy required is enormous, and all of it shows on your utility bill. An HVAC inspection can prevent this by ensuring that the air ducts throughout the home are clean and not obstructing normal air flow.
Don’t Neglect Your Home’s HVAC Unit
Your home was a big investment, and it deserves a high level of care and attention to stay in the best condition possible. Just like you have regular inspections to keep your car working properly, your home’s HVAC unit is no different. Contact a specialist who can perform a thorough check of the unit, and alert you to any issues that need attention.
