Our central heating and air conditioning systems are an intrigue part of our lives. They determine whether or not our homes are inviting and comforting during the long, cold winter months. While it has a large impact on our daily lives and our homes, there’s a good portion of us out there who are unaware of their maintenance and upkeep requirements. Heating and cooling systems run without much intervention, but they still require a bit of upkeep and maintenance to keep them running at peak efficiency.
When it comes to central air and heating systems, the same air ducts are used to pump both cold and heated air throughout your home. During the cold winter nights, we tend to gravitate towards the heater. On hot summer days, we turn down the thermostat and crank up the air conditioning. These systems are fueled by mainly electricity, and are connected by the air ducts, which should have proper insulation. Inadequate insulation can allow upwards of 60% of heat to escape, so it’s important to ensure that your air ducts are properly wrapped and insulated.
The air ducts are just another reason why it’s important to keep up on the necessary heating and air conditioning services to keep your system working at peak efficiency. While the level of insulation on your heating ducts is important, it’s not the only or main thing that will help your heating system work at its peak this holiday season.
