Preventative HVAC Tips
Your HVAC (Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning) system is a pretty important part of your home, regardless of whether it’s at the forefront of our minds all that often. Like other aspects of our homes, like the plumbing and electrical wiring are just supposed to work, and your HVAC system usually isn’t any different. Unlike your electrical wiring and plumbing, there are steps you can take to actively protect your HVAC system from some uncertainty later on.
Like any other appliance in your home, your HVAC system requires electricity to work. However, one of the main differences between your HVAC system and, say, your TV (other than their obviously different designs and intents) is that a lot of people put a surge protector on their televisions. The same, unfortunately, cannot be said for your HVAC system.
Hooking up a surge protector can protect your valuable and somewhat delicate HVAC components just as well as it can your television in the event of a power outage – or more specifically, the power coming back on afterward.
