Christmas festivities are all around and you are ready to spend your Christmas vacations somewhere away from your home. The idea of travelling and spending vacations seems so exciting but in this excitement you should not forget your HVAC system. HVAC system is a necessary component of your household because it keeps your home warm in the winters and provides you cooling throughout summer. Moreover it is an expensive investment and probably the most costly electronic item in your house. Thus, while travelling around do not forget to make your HVAC system ready because you do not want to spend on costly repair bills when you come back from spending a happy time. There are just some things to consider before
you leave and you will be good to go.
The idea of turning off the HAVC unit seems just right as no one will be in the house and you will not need any heating during this time. But this notion is all wrong. With the heating system off, the system will accumulate moisture and the evaporators coils will get frozen from that and it will damage your indoor unit. Moreover, extra moisture will start to amass in the house without the heating system on and it will be harmful for the furniture and electronic devices.
So, it is advisable to not turn off your ductless mini split HVAC system during vacations instead turn it to a low heating thermostat. This way the split system will keep the moisture away and the heating will prevent any unwanted damage of the property and appliances in the house.
You should make it sure that your HVAC system filters are clean. Rather clean the filters just one day before you plan to leave. This will keep your house’s indoor air quality at the top level and the system will work at it best without clogged filters. Dirty filters will not efficiently remove the moisture as well as the germs and dust will not be collected thoroughly if the filters are already filled with those.
The compressor needs an open space around it to work properly and if there is some restriction in throwing the air out then it will be drastic for the compressor. So, before leaving ensure that that out-door unit has ample space around it. If there is snow falling in your area, then protect your compressor from the snow by putting a shade on it.
