I’ve been living in the same house for 5 years.
The previous owner didn’t do a great job at keeping up with basic maintenance around the house, so I’ve been slowly fixing everything.
The HVAC system was in really bad shape when I moved in, and it didn’t last more than a few months before it gave out completely. I was forced to replace both the furnace and the air conditioner, which cost me a fortune. I was happy to replace everything though because it meant that I could start from scratch. I didn’t have to worry about paying anymore high utility bills or fear the AC breaking down in the middle of the night. Since then, I’ve had the HVAC system serviced twice per year, once in the spring and once in the fall. This guarantees that my furnace and AC stay running efficiently and consistently during the most extreme parts of the year. During my last HVAC tuneup, I asked the HVAC professional if there was anything else I could do to take care of my HVAC system. Since I already replaced the furnace and air conditioner, he suggested that I have my ductwork cleaned. It would be good to remove any congestion and seal any holes that could be creating big leaks. A lot of air could be wasted if the ductwork wasn’t taken care of properly, so I thought this was a wonderful way to keep my HVAC system running efficiently. Now, my HVAC system is one less thing I have to worry about.
