Ready to learn a few vital things about your heating and cooling system? These are common misconceptions about HVAC units. Since we are not through with this cold weather hear in Sacramento, and high temperatures are just around the corner, it’s a good idea to freshen up your heating and air facts.
1. My new system warranty ensures the care of my system.
False: New system warranties cover flaws in material and installation only. Changing the air filters, inspecting and changing the fan belts, and lubrication are the owner’s duty. If you wait for the warranty to end, you could cause damage to the equipment which would lead to expensive emegency repairs.
2. My New or Current HVAC System is Working Fine Now.
False: Only a complete inspection by a qualified Technician can detect the existing conditions and efficiency of the HVAC system. Preventative Maintenance inspections will guarantee the best performance from your unit and the ability to last through the expected life span.
3. Preventative Maintenance are Too Costly and I Can’t Afford Them.
False: Annual tune-ups are less expensive then you may think. If your equipment breaks down in the middle of winter or the dead heat of summer, repair will cost you a lot more in comparison. With Syntrol, there is a special of only $49 for a System Maintenance. Best to get it done now before you have to pay for it later.
4. It’s not necessary to replace air filters once a month.
False: Changing your air filter once a month ensures that the air your unit is cycling through your home, the air your family breathes in is clean. A dirty filter also greatly reduces efficiency and can cost you unnecessary amounts of money on your energy bill.
5. Programming My Thermostat to One Temperature Throughout the Day is Energy Efficient.
False: When you program your thermostat to stay cooler when you are out of the house and cooler at night, is actually more efficient and saves you money. Your heater uses less energy to heat your house in the morning then it does if it was to try and keep your home the same temperature throughout the day.
