During the winter months, temperatures can drop making it very cold outside. While you are worrying about bundling up yourself, you may also need to worry about your pipes freezing.

If you are experiencing burst pipes or expect one to happen, call an HVAC professional immediately.
No matter what season it is you may find that you have a bad airflow coming into your home. Often the reason for the bad airflow is there is something in the way, such as a box, or another item that is blocking the air. You can simply remove the item that is causing bad airflow and see if this helps. If you look around your house and you do not notice anything blocking the airflow, it could be something in your ductwork that needs to be cleaned out. Call a professional to come and see if they can figure out what is causing bad airflow in your home.
Dirty Air Filters
A dirty air filter can cause problems with your HVAC system. When your air filter is dirty, it can cause bad airflow throughout your house. It will also make your HVAC system work harder than necessary, trying to heat your home. Changing your air filters can help improve your airflow and can help your HVAC system last longer. Change your air filters every one to three months. This way it is clean and the air can pass easily through it.
