Your furnace does only one thing—produce heat to make your home comfortable. There’s something wrong with it, however, if it doesn’t do so. Fortunately, you can perform some troubleshooting on the system without opening and tinkering its components.
The importance of regular HVAC maintenance can’t be overemphasized. Whether you have a furnace, boiler or heat pump, giving your equipment a thorough checkup is necessary to ready it for the winter.
The air conditioning unit is one of the most important things in your home. It’s what helps you keep cool and what makes the harsh summer months more tolerable. While many homeowners know how important they are, few know how they are made.
It can be frustrating when your AC unit doesn’t turn on or emits cool air all of a sudden. While conventional knowledge dictates that you obtain professional help when such issues arise, they can in fact, be fixed on your own. As long as you are aware of what to do, you can get the system up and running again.
Homeowners see it all the time, the blue “ENERGY STAR®” label placed on various electrical appliances, from light bulbs to televisions and air conditioning units. What many homeowners may not be aware of is that this label is created to ensure energy savings.
