Check the Air Filter this Holiday season
Make sure that you check the filter for your HVAC unit. If the filter is dirty or clogged, then the air will not be able to move through it as efficiently as it otherwise should be. Dirt, dust, and other pollutants can get into the air in your home. The filter is what will help capture them so they do not get circulated back into your home. Once the filter is clogged, you will want to have it replaced with a new filter. This way the clean air can circulate back into your home. Always remember to never run the HVAC system without a filter installed. Otherwise parts will become worn and have damage done to them.
Inspect the Ductwork and thermostat as well
Also remember to check the ductwork in the home. If there are any cracks or puncture marks, this will cause the heat to leak out before it enters into the rooms of your home. You may notice an increase in the monthly energy bill because the system will have to work harder to keep the home to the desired temperature. Along with the ductwork, also check the thermostat in your home to make sure the actual temperature is similar to the set temperature. If there is a difference, there may be an issue with the thermostat.
Your garage can be and ideal place to start projects, make repairs, and get tasks done. During the winter, the garage can become cold and uncomfortable to be in.
