Everyone wants to save money, but neglecting the maintenance of your heating and cooling system is no way to do it. Neither is trying to make every repair of your HVAC system a do-it-yourself job. If you’ve been making these and any of the following mistakes with your HVAC, fix them before it’s too late.
Ignoring that rumbling noise
One sign that your heater has a problem is if there are reverberations whenever you switch it on. Failure to do anything about it will only make matters worse. As soon as you notice the noise, Whipple Service Champions recommend bringing in a heating repair expert in Salt Lake City to make a thorough evaluation of the unit and take the appropriate action.
Hiding the system behind shrubbery
Understandably, a homeowner may want to camouflage their outdoor heating and cooling unit as it is hardly as appealing as the rest of the landscape. Think twice before doing that, however. The last thing you want is for dead leaves, twigs, and grass to clog the system. Keep a clearance of at least five feet around and above the unit for proper ventilation.
Failure to take action about strange smells
As soon as you notice that there’s a stale odor inside your house or that your indoor air seems to be stagnant, it means your HVAC system could be defective. Instead of trying to cover this smell using an air freshener, call in a repair expert to inspect what could be the problem.
Neglecting ceiling fans
Now that you have installed a brand new heating and cooling system, it’s time to ditch your ceiling fans, right? Absolutely not. Ceiling fans help enhance the circulation of the air in your home, making the HVAC system function effectively.
Given the important role that your HVAC serves in your home, it’s important to take care of the system so that you get the most out of it. Fortunately, you only need to do a few simple things to keep your heating and cooling in peak shape.
