RESIDENTIAL HVAC PROBLEM SIGNS
If it’s been some time since you have had your homes furnace or air conditioner system inspected, your first priority should be to have it professionally inspected by a certified technician like those employed by Home Improvement Guyz inspect, service and identify any problems. Serious problems may have already become apparent even from inside the building, such as cracks on a ceiling due to improper humidity levels, excessive dust in the home, improper comfort control (too hot or too cold). The smallest problems can even become a tell tale sign of trouble. Also if the home has unexplained mold or odors inside, this could be an indication that your air conditioner may be over sized and cooling the house too fast, satisfying the thermostat and not allowing the air conditioner system to run long enough to pull the humidity out of the homes air resulting in the household furniture fabric feeling damp. Mold will eventually form in the fabric and will worsen over time if not addressed in a timely fashion. HVAC inspections can be done by the building owner; however it always makes more sense to have a trained eye of a residential hvac contractor like Home Improvement Guyz to make sure the job is done safely and correctly.
RESIDENTIAL HVAC PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE AND CARE
Some of the best ways to avoid having issues with your home hvac system entirely is through routine regular hvac inspections and hvac preventive maintenance. Proper maintenance of your hvac system will not only prolong the life of a furnace or air conditioning system, it will ensure the system is working efficiently and consuming less electric and gas saving you money, lowering your monthly expenses. The frequency of inspections (spring and fall) for routine maintenance will catch any furnace, air conditioner or heat pump problems in the early stage before the problem amplifies. For this reason scheduling regular hvac inspections is an effective way to also prevent the premature replacement of your hvac system.
