We didn’t check on our A/C system over the winter whenever the weather was cold and we’re paying for it now! I think that everyone should really check on their HVAC systems at least once a month or so.
It’s one of those things that people seem to think about only when there’s an issue with it.
However, the indoor air quality in your home is really important for you and for your family. You really need to make sure that the HVAC system in your home is running smoothly at all times because if it’s not, then it might affect your respiratory system. I know that I won’t ever think that the indoor air quality in the house isn’t important, and so these days I make sure to double check the heating and cooling system during the off months. That is basically because I learned things the hard way over the winter. We have really harsh winters around here and so the last thing that I was thinking about during those cold months was my central air conditioning system. I mean, I knew that it was sitting down in my basement, but I didn’t really think about it at all because it was cold outside. I decided that I didn’t need to worry about it at all because I wasn’t using it at that time. However, now I know that this simply wasn’t true. You should always make sure that your central heating and cooling system are well maintained and free of dirt and debris, even when they are not being used in the current season. It’s one of those things that a lot of homeowners don’t know about.
