The right thermostat settings help maintain a comfortable temperature while also saving energy.
If electrical connections are defective, they may damage HVAC equipment or make it hazardous to operate. Motors should have the correct voltage and current.
Should the condensate drain be plugged, it may lead to water damage, musty air due to mold, and increased humidity in the house.
The controls work properly if the system starts, operates, and turns off normally. Malfunctioning system controls can become a safety issue.
If moving parts are not properly lubricated, they can cause friction in the motors (which in turn results in greater energy use).
For a humidifier to operate effectively, it must be clean and free from mold as well as debris.
If the gas or oil connections are faulty, they can cause health issues or become a fire hazard.
A dirty burner can lead to faulty burner operation which may result in energy waste or safety issues.
Similarly, a damaged heat exchanger can impact energy efficiency or operational safety.
We care about the energy efficiency and safety of your home so we hope you found this HVAC checklist for Winter helpful. Two thing you can do is check batteries in carbon monoxide detectors and remove vegetation and other clutter from the heat pump, if unit is in an accessible place, to allow proper airflow inside.
