HVAC and duct cleanliness have a direct impact on the functionality of the equipment as well, a clean system ought to function at maximum capacity. If your system is clean and properly functioning, it should provide you with positive indoor air quality and a lower monthly cost of running your HVAC system.

You can keep your commercial ducts in a row by changing the filters within the system regularly - it is recommended to change them every 90 days. Check any connections for damage. If you can see any damage to the connections, wires, or motors then the damage needs to be repaired immediately in order to keep your HVAC system safe and properly functioning.

Tips for Investment Properties, Are They Worth It?

6/10/2019 (Permalink)

Why Do You Need to Inspect Your Investment Properties?

Most investment properties are big, meaning that it is possible for their current owners to conceal all sorts of faults in order to secure a better selling price. As a result, if you are interested in a particular investment property, you should inspect both its interior and its exterior to make sure that it is worth its price.

What Are Some Common Warning Signs?

Here are some common warning signs:

  • Uneven heating and cooling in the attic could be a sign of something wrong with the insulation of the roof. As a result, get a roofer to check the roof for cracks, crevices, and other faults, while also making sure that the drainage system is running properly.
  • A musty smell combined with discoloration in humid surroundings mean that there could be mold. Not only is mold potentially dangerous for human health, but it is also a sign that there is too much moisture, which can cause a lot of materials to deteriorate.
  • The history of changes that have been made to an investment property can say a lot about its current condition. If the current owner is unwilling to divulge more than a bare minimum of information, that could be an bad sign that they are attempting to hide something.
