Hello. My name is Max. My wife and I have five children who all live at with us in our large two-story house. My wife and two of our kids suffer from severe allergies which means keeping our home as dust-free as possible. I have learned that it’s crucial to keep our heating and air conditioning units properly maintained at all times. We have a fantastic HVAC company that comes out two times a year to perform routine maintenance on our system. They have taught me what I can do on a monthly basis in order to not only help with my family’s health but also keep our system running efficiently. I would like to share some of the tips I’ve been given. I hope you find this to be useful!

This will cause loud banging noises when air gets blocked in your ducts, and it can be bothersome to many home owners. While it is unlikely that you have a serious problem with your heating system, it's important to get loud noises checked to avoid emergency repairs in the future.

When you are faced with all of the expenses associated with building a home, you might be tempted to save money by installing a mid-range AC unit. The problem with this approach is that while you would save money initially, the mid-range unit would have higher operating costs, and your utility costs will end up being the higher cost in the long run. Thus, you should buy a highly efficient AC unit to get the most savings for your money.

Do you run your air conditioner for a long period of time but don't feel a difference? If the temperatures aren't dropping quickly in your home shortly after turning on your air conditioner, then not only could you be dealing with potential defects caused by poor AC maintenance, but you could also be paying more than you realize on your electrical bill as a poorly operating AC can consume more electricity during use.
