Don’t forget your HVAC system this Christmas!

Dec 23, 2020 | Uncategorized

With people all over Ohio preparing to celebrate Christmas this week, we would like to take this opportunity to remind our readers not to overlook their HVAC systems this holiday season.

In order to help everyone give their HVAC systems the care they need and deserve, we at Springfield Heating & Cooling put together the following list of some of the best gifts a homeowner can give their HVAC equipment this Christmas:

Investing in Whole-Home Humidifiers

Ever notice how dry the air is around this time of year? Ohio’s winters can make homes extremely dry. Worse yet, this unusually arid air is the source of a host of health problems, sleeping problems, skin problems and breathing problems. And, if left unchecked, dry air can cause static electricity to emanate throughout a home. Some say this can damage electronics in severe cases. One thing is certain, however, dry air does cause damage to woodwork in a home, such as trim, furniture and flooring. The “silver bullet” solution to all these problems is getting a whole-home humidifier installed. Call the number below to see if we are offering any special holiday price rates! 

Smart Thermostats Are More Affordable than Ever

If you’re still messing with an old hockey puck-looking dial to adjust temperatures in your home, you should really think about getting yourself, your HVAC system and your house the gift of peace of mind, energy savings and convenience by getting a smart thermostat this holiday season! Smart Thermostats are more affordable than ever. They are super easy to install and take very little time. Plus, these great gift gadgets enable you to get the most out of your system around-the clock, resulting in significant energy savings while you are away. Furthermore, smart thermostats are equipped with a ton of cool features, including system diagnostics, air filter replacement notifications, air quality monitoring features, Wi-Fi compatibility, Smart Home-friendly access and smartphone accessibility so a homeowner can adjust their settings on the fly — anywhere, anytime.

Check Attic & Basement Insulation 

Ample levels of insulation are what allow your HVAC systems to function efficiently and lessen the amount of work they have to do by preventing treated air from escaping. If you haven’t done so yet this season or in recent seasons, consulting a professional to inspect your attic and basement’s insulation levels is a good idea. They can assess whether there’s a need to increase insulation or replace it. Often, a little insulation goes a long way.

Assess Air Flow in Air Ducts 

Dirt, debris and all sorts of things are known to build up in our air ducts as they are used over the years. As such, we hope this serves as a reminder for homeowners to check ductwork during the holidays and possibly have air ducts professionally cleaned to prevent anything from forcing the system to have to work harder than it should. When airflow through the air ducts gets hindered, it also negatively affects the quality of the air circulating throughout the dwelling. Often, this leads to unwanted odors and even respiratory problems. Keep in mind we do offer air duct cleaning. However, availability is limited. For more information, call the number below.

The Three “C’s” of Air Filters: Check, Clean or Change

Air filters can cause all kinds of problems when they aren’t changed or cleaned regularly. These problems begin with regular airflow blockage and evolve into system glitches, energy drainage,  air quality problems, breakdowns and major system failure. Because of this, checking them often and changing them frequently will not only ensure better indoor air quality. It will also lighten the burden being put on your HVAC equipment and result in lower energy consumption and a lot less wear and tear, which means longer and less costly service life of your comfort systems. Lastly, if you’re looking to improve your home’s Indoor Air Quality, you should consider getting an air filter upgrade altogether. They provide more bang for your buck!

Seasonal Maintenance is Essential

All things considered, there’s simply no substitute for preventative maintenance when it comes to something as expensive and intricate as a residential HVAC system. Because of this, having a certified technician come over to check your system, give it a tune-up and safety check and ensure it is working properly as part of a maintenance appointment is essential. This service allows our men and women to troubleshoot for problems that helps you avoid repairs and wear-and-tear.
