If you are wondering if there is anything you can do to improve your central heat and air quality the answer is yes. The first thing to do is to book a servicing visit from your local HVAC contractor. They should be able to do a service on your entire system and then advise you on how best to get it working more efficiently. It may be that the system is so old that you should replace it. The good news is that there are a lot of grants and incentives such as tax credits available which will help to offset the initial cost.
In a lot of cases people are losing money on their central heat and air system due to poor quality of either the ducts themselves or the way they have been sealed. Ducts need to be regularly maintained so that cracks and tears can be repaired or replaced as necessary. A duct system needs to be properly designed and sealed in order to make your home comfortable. If you are having problems heating your home or finding it very difficult to keep cool in summer, your ducts may be to blame and should be inspected by the experts.
Some people who are into DIY will undertake to do the maintenance of the duct system themselves. While this may appear to save money it could actually cost you a lot more in the long run. Not only do you risk higher bills because you miss a problem but you could also be putting your entire HVAC system at risk. It is a lot less expensive to have the existing system serviced than it is to have to replace a central heat and air system in a home. So why not book that appointment today and see what your HVAC contractor has to say about your home?
