A: Landscaping your home can be fun-filled and a great way to beautify your outside areas. When it comes down to your outside equipment, you will need to take care. It needs a lot of room to be able to breathe. This signifies that you have to give 18 inches on top of and surrounding your unit for adequate air circulation. This will enable it to function as required to ensure your house will feel comfortable.

Q: Can I shut doorways and vents to areas that aren’t ordinarily used?
A: There is a popular belief among people that if you close doors or air vents to rooms that are not frequently used, then you will decrease your electric charges. This is completely false. Your unit is installed to match the ductwork in your house. When you block an air vent or door, then the air needs to go somewhere. It generates a great deal of pressure which then your blower, or the heart of your HVAC system, will need to make up for. It works more and spikes up your electric bill.
