We know, this makes us sound like the resident party-poopers. How dare we come into your home and ruin all the fun by telling you what you shouldn’t do. After all, it’s your house, your HVAC system, so you should be able to do with it what you want, right?
Well, not really. For starters, if you’ve got a gas-powered heating system, it can be downright illegal to tamper with that if you don’t have an HVAC license. Along those lines, doing anything other than what a homeowner should do to their HVAC system could cost you thousands of dollars in repairs or replacements, and can be a generally irresponsible thing to do.
If you’re not a big fan of throwing money out the window, and you’d rather leave the important stuff up to an HVAC contractor in Mandeville, LA, then pay attention. We’ll tell you what you should never try to do for your HVAC system.

Cycles, it’s all about cycles! What are we talking about? Well, you’ve got the water cycle taking care of your plants in your garden, the planetary cycle keeping the seasons in check, and the cycle of your heater keeping things comfortable in your home! Wait, you don’t know about that last part?
Heaters, just like air conditioners, run on cycles in order to keep things at the temperatures specified on your thermostat. By using a specific amount of energy or natural gas, they can produce enough heat to meet the requirements of your home and then shut off for a period of time. When cycled correctly, a heater will keep you comfortable with minimal energy or fuel consumption. If your heater is not cycling correctly, then you might need help with your HVAC in Covington, LA.
Keep reading as we get into the details about how heater cycling works.
