Replacing an HVAC system is one of the biggest expenses homeowners will experience after they've purchased a home. Since this shopping experience is one that isn't frequently dealt with, it is easy to make a mistake when purchasing a new HVAC unit. Here is a look at five of the largest mistakes a homeowner can make when they are faced with an HVAC replacement.
During the summer months, you may turn your HVAC unit on to keep cool, and you may run the system non-stop throughout the day and night for several months or longer. This type of intensive use can be brutal on your system, so you understandably want to keep it well-maintained and take steps now to get it ready for the considerable amount of wear and tear that it will experience in the coming weeks and months.
While it isn't necessary to clean your HVAC ducts on a weekly basis, this task should be undertaken at least every five years. Some sources recommend doing so every three years. Although no scientific research has come up with definitive results that cleaning the vents has positive consequences, many industry experts believe that doing so improves the quality of the air that you breathe while using your HVAC system.
Any decision made about the home is an important one. When it comes to choices about heating and cooling, you want to know that you are getting the best possible solution. Comfort, efficiency, and good air quality are all important things to consider when deciding on what HVAC system to incorporate into your home or business.
