Your HVAC system is an important part of your home. It keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Without it, you will be left uncomfortable all year round. There is a good chance that you take your HVAC system for granted – you assume that when you turn it on, everything will work. Unfortunately, your HVAC system can fail and it will usually fail at the most inopportune times. The following safety tips will help you keep your HVAC system up and running, as well as provide you with a few pointers to ensure your home and family’s safety.
Maintenance is the key – proper maintenance of your HVAC system is the key to keeping it running properly every season. Instead of waiting until something is wrong with your system, schedule regular maintenance to prevent problems before they start.
Keep the air flowing – clean or replace your air filters on a regular basis. When an air filter becomes clogged with dirt, your HVAC system will not provide the heated and cooled air that you need. If the air is not able to flow properly, your unit may trigger a safety switch. You can prevent this problem by maintaining your HVAC system’s air filter.
Detection is important – carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless compound that results from incomplete combustion. The flame from your HVAC system, while a controlled flame, can result in unsafe levels of carbon monoxide. Install a carbon monoxide detector to protect you and your loved ones from this deadly compound.
Do not forget the batteries – along with your carbon monoxide detector, your smoke detectors are an essential part of HVAC and home safety. Make sure you test your detectors at least once a month and replace any dead or weakened batteries. The simplest repairs, such as this, could mean the difference between life and death.
