Sometimes, calling a technician for HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) service is a necessity, while other times it’s simply beneficial for your wallet, your health, or your comfort. While your heating system may seem to be working just fine right now, there are a number of services that can help to improve efficiency, performance, and the quality of the air you breathe every day. You may hope to avoid HVAC services for the rest of the heating season, but many services performed by technicians can help to improve your home significantly.
- Heating Repair: Unfortunately, your heating system may run into repair needs before the heating season is over. Heating systems can run into trouble at any point in the heating season, but especially if they’ve become overworked as the season was in full swing. Speedy repairs can help to boost the efficiency of your unit and keep other parts from failing as a result.
- Thermostat Installation: Your older thermostat may not be as accurate as you’d like, but a new programmable thermostat with a clear digital display can help you to run your unit efficiently throughout the heating season and into the cooling season. Use your new thermostat to program your heating system to switch on 30 minutes before you arrive home from work to keep from wasting energy running the unit throughout the day.
- Insulation: Proper insulation can keep your home feeling warmer for the rest of the heating season. Insulation resists heat transfer, keeping heat from escaping through the walls, out of the ceiling, or from the ducts, so that warm air fills the room. Its benefits will carry over into the cooling season, keeping heat from transferring into your home in the warmer months.
- Indoor Air Quality System Installation: A new indoor air quality system, like a UV germicidal light, electronic air filter, or dehumidifier, can help you and your family breathe easier, especially if someone in the home has a respiratory illness.
- Duct Repair: Finally, you may discover that a lack of heating in your home can actually be attributed to holes and cracks in the ductwork. It turns out that most ductwork in the United States is poorly sealed and may have air leaks that contribute to up to 30% of energy loss in a heating or cooling cycle.
