Taking Care of the Heart of Your Home - Your HVAC Unit

February is not just the month of Valentine’s Day, but it is also National Heart Month. Just like it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to take care of your heart to make sure you live a long life, the same goes for your HVAC unit. It is easy to think that your systems will run properly all on their own, but it is important to keep a few things in mind to help ensure that your HVAC system lasts a long time.

  1. Make sure you have the right size HVAC unit for your home. If the unit is too small it will overwork itself, forcing it to produce more cool air than it is built for, therefore wearing it out quickly. If the unit is too large, it may short cycle.
  2. Have your unit installed by a professional. When a certified technician installs your HVAC unit, you can feel confident that it will work properly year-round, minimizing the frequency of repairs and allowing for greater energy-efficiency.
  3. Keep an eye out for issues. Just like with your own heart, it is important to look for tell-tale signs that it is time to get some professional help. If you notice odd noises coming from the unit, that your energy bill is suddenly higher, or that the temperature is constantly fluctuating in your house, it might be time to call an HVAC expert. Catching smaller issues quickly can ultimately save you from having to repair a much bigger problem later on.
  4. Schedule regular maintenance. This is probably the most important element of keeping your HVAC unit up to top standards.
