Residential HVAC

HVAC systems are an important part of maintaining the temperature and air circulation in your home. Many people may not know exactly how their residential HVAC system works or what needs to be done to maintain it. Here are three important things to know about your HVAC system:

1.  There are many components to HVAC systems. Heating, cooling, and ventilation are all components of your residential HVAC system and are very integrated with each other. Your thermostat is another component, and is the control center for the entire system.

2.  Your HVAC system should last at least 10 years. On average, a properly installed and maintained residential HVAC system should run well for around 10-15 years. Unfortunately, poor installation or maintenance can cause your residential HVAC system to wear out sooner. While you may want to save money now and spend less on the system, installation, or maintenance, it is better in the long run to invest in quality HVAC services.

3.  Insulation and sealing is key to helping your system work efficiently. Not only is having an energy efficient HVAC system important and beneficial, but making sure your windows are sealed and your home is properly insulated can prevent your HVAC system from being overworked.

Knowing these three important things about your residential HVAC system can help you save money and keep your system working efficiently. If you have any questions or need help with your system, don’t hesitate to call AppleBlossom Energy!
