Balancing My HVAC System

A few months ago, I realized that something was wrong with my HVAC system. It seemed like no matter what I did, some rooms were hot and some rooms were simply getting too much cooled air. Instead of trying to troubleshoot my air conditioner on my own, I called out a professional HVAC repairman for help. They went through each room of my house when the system was running to measure the outgoing airflow and to check for issues. They discovered some serious balance problems, which they resolved after running a few extra lines. Check out this blog to learn more about HVAC in general.

Three Reasons Not To Skip Your Annual HVAC Inspections

When you had your new furnace and air conditioner installed, your HVAC technician probably recommended that you schedule annual inspections to make sure everything is working properly. However, if you're like many homeowners, you may be tempted to skip those inspections. After all, if everything seems to be working fine, the inspection isn't important, right? Wrong. Here are three good reasons why you should never skip your annual HVAC inspections.

You'll Have to Make Fewer Emergency Repairs

A lot of HVAC problems start off small, barely causing any noticeable symptoms. For instance, a screw may start to wiggle loose, or the thermocouple may slowly start to corrode. You're unlikely to notice these issues during day to day operation of your HVAC system, but when left unaddressed, they will leave you without heat (or AC) and in need of emergency repairs. When you have your HVAC system inspected annually, your technician will catch these little issues and fix them right away so you don't get left without heat on a 10-degree night.

Your Energy Costs Will Be Lower

The small tune-ups your HVAC technician makes during the inspection will ensure your unit is working as efficiently as possible, so you're not paying more than you have to for energy. During the inspection, your technician may also ask you some questions about how you use the unit. They might ask, for instance, what temperature you set the thermostat to, which vents you open or close, and how often you change the air filters. Based on your answers, they can give you personalized tips to save more energy.

Your Warranty Will Be Upheld

Many warranties on HVAC equipment carry a clause that specifies that they will only be upheld if the owner has the system inspected on an annual basis. If you skip your inspections and something breaks, your warranty may not cover it. Also, having your inspections conducted on time ensures that you are more likely to catch an issue while the unit is still under warranty as opposed to finding out about it several years later when the system breaks down completely and the warranty is no longer in place.

If your HVAC technician recommends that you have your new system inspected annually, it is wise to take them up on the offer. The low cost of an inspection is more than worth the lack of emergency repairs, the energy savings, and the warranty advantages you receive in return.
