If there’s anything that keeps us inside our home in the chilling winters and scorching summers, despite the urge to shop around and have fun, it is the cooling and heating systems in Vancouver respectively.

But do we take good care of these systems or take them for granted till there is a significant fault that needs urgent repair or worse, replacement, costing us a fortune?

Most of us will nod with the latter, which is a bad habit and if we want our heating and cooling system to remain in the best shape and function correctly to their maximum lifespan, we have to make sure that we get rid of our certain bad habits which can be adversely impacting the performance of our  area heating and cooling systems in Vancouver and bringing their efficiency down:

KEEPING THE SYSTEM ON ALL THE TIME:

After all, it is a machine, and it needs some time off to be able to restore the energy with which it is pumping out hot/cold air in your home. Keeping the system on all the time will have a negative impact on the system. Don’t put unnecessary pressure as it will lead to early wear and tear of the equipment damaging the furnace parts, air ducts to the extent of irreparable damage.

What can you do?

Get a smart thermostat or set you traditional thermostat to minimize the burden on your units and enhance its efficiency. Constant on and off can damage your unit internally, and it might not show immediately.

INSTALLING UNITS OF TOO SMALL OR TOO LARGE SIZE:

Installing units that are too small might not cool/heat your home correctly, thereby increasing the pressure on the system to perform better while a unit of more substantial size might lead to wastage of space and energy and spike the electricity bill.

What can you do?

Seek the help of professional HVAC contractor who will help with installing, maintaining, repairing your system ensuring that your system contributes to the overall home’s efficiency and cut down on your energy bill.

NOT TIMELY CLEANING THE SYSTEMS:

Continuously running heating and cooling system get dirt, dust, and debris accumulated on their internal component, which if not cleaned timely can degrade the air quality flowing out of it and also decrease their lifespan. Not maintaining and servicing the system periodically would lead to burdening the internal components such as furnace parts in Vancouver, for conditioning and blowing the same air but with more pressure.

What can you do?

Make it a point not to try to clean the unit by yourself as it can do more harm than good, to the unit and your bank balance. Consult a trained and experienced HVAC contractor who comes with the skill and experience to thoroughly clean and repair if there is any problem fixing it for good.  

COVERING THE CONDENSER UNIT:

While your intention to keep the unit look good as new for long is understood, but covering the condenser unit will affect the airflow,  extending the time required in proper functioning and cooling and decreasing the system’s lifespan.

What can you do?

Do not cover the condenser with any material and also make sure not to block its path with plants or such disruptions.

NOT CHANGING THE HEATING FILTERS:

With time the filters in the Vancouver heating system become home for dirt, dust, and debris and if not appropriately cleaned need to be replaced. A dirty filter will degrade the quality of air in the house, thereby affecting the health of the occupants.

What can you do?

Consult a professional heating and cooling system repair and maintenance contractors to get the whole system inspected or any damage or servicing.

Why are we emphasizing on consulting a professional HVAC contractor and not fix these problems by yourself?

Because your limited knowledge and negligence might lead to more harm than good, wasting significant time, energy and money.

So instead of going from shop to shop to find the right tool, call an HVAC Contractor and find a solution for all your system problems, for good.
