HVAC 101: A Back-To-School Study Guide On Your Home’s Heating and Cooling System


Are you ready to go back to school? As the Charlotte Mecklenburg County schools go back to their classrooms, we want to make sure that you have all of the essentials and are ready to pass the test in HVAC101! 

This study guide will teach you everything you need to know about your home’s heating and cooling system. 

  1. Preventative Maintenance

Maintaining your heating and cooling system is incredibly important! Preventative maintenance checks can save you money, prevent costly breakdowns, keep you safe, improve your air quality and so much more. 

  1. Tips to Keep Cool 

If your air conditioning system hasn’t been keeping you cool this summer, the first thing you need to do is call NuBlue Air. Our HVAC technicians can take a look at your unit, inspect it for any leaks or broken parts and then offer a recommendation on how to fix the problem. But there are a few other ways you can keep cool this summer by using your ceiling fans or opening the windows when it’s nice out. 

  1. Animals To Watch Out For

Ants, rodents, snakes, birds and mice oh my! These critters are only a few of the many creatures that can wreak havoc on your heating and cooling system. Whether it has been creating a nest in the unit or chewing through wires and ductwork, it’s important to keep an eye out for animals gone wild. 

  1. Indoor Air Quality Matters

Did you know that indoor air quality is often 2-5 times worse than outdoor air quality? Dust, pollen, pet hair, dander, chemicals and other bacteria are constantly floating through the air and can irritate a person’s allergies or asthmatic symptoms. The NuBlue Air team recommends the iWave home filtration system to keep your air quality under control. We also recommend you change your air filters every 30-90 days to ensure optimum freshness!

If you’re interested in improving the air quality in your home, let us know! We’re offering 25% off the iWave home filtration system and would love to discuss these options with you.
