Are you a homeowner? How much attention do you pay to your heating and air system?

As a provider of quality, affordable heating and air conditioning services to homeowners in and around Savannah, GA, Rick’s HVAC wants to make sure that your family is enjoying indoor comfort with an HVAC system that’s working properly and giving you reliable, energy-efficient performance year after year.

That’s why we wrote this blog today. Here you’ll find several points that every homeowner should know about heating and air conditioning. Read on!

A Little Maintenance Goes A Long Way

It can be easy to overlook your HVAC system. After all, it works quietly in the background without demanding much of you.

But it’s important to remember that, as with other areas of your home, maintenance is required from time to time. If you don’t take care of the small stuff now, bigger problems can turn up, requiring more time, effort, and money to fix. Delaying maintenance can cost you.

Instead of overlooking or ignoring your heating and air equipment, contact the technicians at Rick’s HVAC. We will send a specialist over to take a look at your furnace, heat pump, or other heat source, your air conditioner, your thermostat, and even your ducts, if needed, to make sure everything is in order. If your filter needs changing or a small adjustment has to be made now, it will be a much quicker and cheaper fix than waiting for the system to break down completely. At that point, you may be looking at a full HVAC system replacement.

Prolong the life of your heating and air equipment, and put off having to fully replace your furnace or your air conditioning unit (or both) by making sure to take care of the small stuff before it turns into a bigger issue.

Timely Repairs Can Save You Money

There are many different components to your heating and air conditioning system, including some of the following (depending on what type of HVAC system you have):

  • Thermostat
  • Heat exchanger
  • Evaporator coil
  • Condensing unit
  • Furnace
  • Heat pump
  • Compressor
  • Vents
  • Ductwork
  • Blower motor
  • Miscellaneous wires and electronics
  • Refrigerant
  • Fan
  • Filter
  • Air handling unit

These parts, sections, and components can come loose or break in some way. Timely repairs and adjustments will ensure that your entire system doesn’t quit on you.

All Electromechanical Systems Need To Be Serviced

Everything that is both electrical and mechanical needs to be serviced from time to time. Think about it; your vehicle needs frequent service and maintenance to continue to work for you. From the car engine to the braking system, your vehicle depends on timely maintenance where your mechanic will catch and repair small issues before they become huge and destroy your engine or leave you stranded somewhere.

In your kitchen, there are many appliances that use both electricity and mechanical systems. From your microwave with its turning table, to your washing machine and its electromechanical setup, your appliances need to be serviced from time to time.

It’s the same with your heating and air system. It doesn’t just sit there passively; there are mechanical components involved. Electrical systems need to be checked to make sure the electronics and wires are still doing the job they were designed to do.

Indoor Air Quality Matters

It isn’t just about keeping temperatures at the right levels so that you and your family can enjoy indoor comfort, although that in and of itself is an important consideration.

It’s also about having the best indoor air quality possible.

When your heating and air equipment is working correctly and efficiently, you and your family can enjoy a better quality of air. This makes a difference in many areas, from everyone in your household being able to breathe more easily to cleaner air circulating through your bloodstream.

Breathing clean air also means fewer allergies, better health, fewer respiratory issues, improved skin health, and much more. Indoor air quality truly does matter! Regular maintenance of your system translates directly into better, cleaner air being pumped through your house.
