What Does HVAC Signify?

These characters symbolize the primary roles of your home HVAC system. They stand for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Despite not being included in the acronym, there are other HVAC essentials located in your home. Which is made up of your furnace, heat pump, ductwork, indoor air quality components (air filters, humidifiers, and purifiers), as well as your thermostat. But in this article, we will be focusing on the A/C functions of your home HVAC system. 

Why/When Should I Replace My Air Filter? 

The AC filter is responsible for catching various particles so they don’t circulate back into your home. The air filter needs to be replaced at least once every 90 days to keep dust and dirt out of your filtered air. Your AC system cannot do its job correctly when your filter is filled, resulting in unclean air or an AC unit breakdown.  

What If My AC Making an Odd Noise? 

Air Conditioner units will make some noise; if not, it’s probably not working. On the other hand, if this noise is intense or startling, there may be an issue inside the AC unit. If this sound is continuous, our HVAC professionals recommend scheduling an appointment diagnostic ASAP. Be conscious; if this issue is not fixed soon, it could be terrible for your system and lead to steep costs to correct the problem.
