If your HVAC unit operates poorly, your heating bills might be larger than they should be. Plus, your home probably isn't warm or comfortable either due to drafts, uneven heating, and obnoxious noises coming from your HVAC system. Here is a look at five of the most common reasons behind poor HVAC performance.
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas that can poison people within a matter of minutes. It's hard to detect because it doesn't cause any symptoms initially. This type of flammable gas forms when carbon atoms do not fully combust. It occurs most frequently in the internal combustion system of vehicles as well as ovens and furnaces. When fumes leak into a home or garage, people inside can become ill or even die as a result of inhaling them. Carbon monoxide detectors warn people of unsafe levels of the poisonous gas that they can neither see nor smell.
A mid-season breakdown of the HVAC system can be a big disaster. Besides the inconvenience and discomfort, you are likely to pay a premium for emergency repairs. Heating and cooling systems need regular maintenance and pre-season inspections. The best time to do this is a few weeks before the onset of summer or winter. To ensure trouble-free performance, you need a combination of simple do-it-yourself (DIY) maintenance and expert servicing.

The efficiency of your HVAC system is important for two reasons - the comfort of your home and the size of your energy bills. In order for your heating unit to deliver energy efficiency, all of its components must be fully operational. Here is a look at some of the issues that could cause your HVAC system to fail.
Most people spend up to 90% of their time indoors. Do you work in an office, store, or factory? Do you live in an apartment, small house, or mansion? In any indoor space, you breathe air that is drawn in through air vents and circulated through a ductwork system, much the same way that your lungs circulate the air in your body.
If other homes in your neighborhood have been flying off the shelves while yours sits on the market, you may need to reevaluate your property. There are some relatively simple things that chase buyers away, and it is all too easy to overlook these problems.
Finally, Spring is here! Leaves are popping out and the birds are chirping. As the temperatures rise, many will begin the tasks of spring maintenance (if you haven't already.) While painting, cleaning carpets, and early lawn work make nearly every list, a few important items are often overlooked. These items can save thousands of dollars, and maybe even your home and life.
A home cooling system inspection is a must-do for every spring cleaning list. By making the home cooling system maintenance a part of annual spring cleaning, you can save money and ensure the comfort of your family throughout the summer months.
