During mild weather, many homeowners wonder if they can or should turn off their HVAC system. There may even be instances wherein you may not even need to turn on your furnace. However, the weather can be unpredictable. One day, the temperature may be perfectly fine, but the next you might have to heat your entire house.
This may make it difficult to use your HVAC system efficiently. To help you decide how to use your HVAC system during mild weather, consider reading this article from AC repair expert Mechanical Technologies.
Nevertheless, it’s important to note the advantages of keeping your HVAC system running during mild winters. Your HVAC units heat and cool your home, circulate air, control humidity levels and improve indoor air quality. Therefore, you must be careful to pay attention to how your home feels and smells when it’s not on. Should you choose not to run your system, you may have to open up windows or doors to let in fresh air.
Additionally, having your HVAC system on at a lower temperature during a mild winter means it will be more capable of handling any freezing temperatures on the other side. Running your HVAC system will also prevent your pipes from freezing, which can be a costly repair.
