Do’s & Don’ts for HVAC Success

HVAC Do's and Don'ts - Builders Heating

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign…Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?”

If you are of a certain age, you likely remember those lyrics well. It was part of a 1970’s protest song of sorts sung by the “Five Man Electrical Band”. What does that song have to do with HVAC work in Denver, CO?  Builder’s Heating & Air Conditioning certainly isn’t protesting anything, we just thought it was a good way to remind you there are some common-sense do’s and don’ts when it comes to your home comfort systems.

Don’t:

Put off routine maintenance. The very best way to handle regular maintenance is with Builder’s dollar-a-day Energy Savings Plan. It gives you annual tune-ups on your heating and cooling systems, plus a host of other benefits.

Do:

Check your carbon monoxide detectors regularly to make sure all are working, and replace the batteries on a regular basis. Don’t have detectors? Call Builder’s to find out how easy and affordable it is to add these life-saving devices to your home.

Don’t:

Depend only on your CO detectors. Remember, they only detect carbon monoxide when the levels are dangerously high. There is more and more evidence that even low levels of this odorless gas can have long term health effects. Schedule a furnace or boiler inspection so Builder’s can test the air for any presence of carbon monoxide.

Do:

Change or clean your HVAC filters regularly. It is the single most important thing you can do to keep your system running efficiently. Even a relatively small amount of dirt and dust can limit air flow. A dirty filter is the most common reason for a system breakdown.

Don’t:

Turn the heat down too low if you’re leaving the house for an extended period of time. You don’t want it to get too cold or your system will have to work extremely hard to get the temperature back to normal. Even though it should go without saying, never shut the heat off when you are leaving home. It could lead to thousands of dollars in damage from frozen and burst water pipes.

Do:

Call Builder’s Heating & Air Conditioning for all of your Denver area heating and cooling needs.

Don’t:

Trust anyone else without the long history of HVAC service in Denver, CO. Builders has been keeping the city and suburbs comfortable since 1950.
