Have you been noticing a rise in your utility bills recently? Perhaps you’ve been constantly adjusting your thermostat, but your home is still failing to maintain a comfortable temperature.
These may both be signs that a problem with your HVAC system is causing it to work harder than usual. A faulty system may result in poor indoor air quality and higher exposure to air pollutants. which could lead to respiratory issues, so it’s important to seek to help of trusted HVAC companies like Connolly Heating and Air Conditioning to address these concerns.
Here are a few of the things you need to be on the lookout for:
Drafts and air leaks tend to lead to uncomfortable rooms. They also make heating and cooling your home more challenging by letting the heat escape in the winter and allowing more heat to enter your home in the summer.
The most common spots for leaks are air ducts, windows, doors, chimneys and attics. Finding these leaks and drafts and eliminating them can help you save up to 10 percent on your energy bills.
Mold and Other Contaminants
Another factor that may damage your HVAC system is the presence of mold. Mold can grow unnoticed inside the ducts and find its way to other areas in your home, damaging appliances, ceilings and other items or home components. it can also cause sickness and other health issues in the household.
Mold tends to multiply more quickly in humid places, as all it needs to survive is moisture. If you start to notice a musty odor, especially when your furnace or air conditioner are running, there might be a mold infestation in your home. Dust deposits and other contaminants can also accumulate in ducts over time.
