That means we need our HVAC units running at top performance levels at all times of the year without overworking it or misusing it. Here are a few of the top mistakes we see homeowners making with their HVAC systems:

Skipping Regular Maintenance

Regular HVAC system maintenance is vital to your comfort level and to your wallet. A professional can come to your home on a scheduled basis to make sure your furnace and your AC unit are running perfectly. The time to keep your system operating smoothly is now, not when it breaks down on the hottest or coldest day of the year!

Installing Your Own Thermostat

A thermostat needs to be installed correctly to work properly. At Dean’s, we have the expertise to take care of this for you and to make sure you are getting the right thermostat for your unit and your home.

Blocking Your Grates and Grills

Your HVAC system works on a free flow of air throughout your home. Make sure your grates and grills are not blocked by:

  • Plants
  • Bookcases
  • Furniture
  • Curtains

Closing Doors to Rooms

In a forced air system closing interior doors to rooms you don’t use makes your system less efficient. The system depends on the free flow of air to keep your home cool or warm.
