HVAC TIP: Check to make sure there are no gaps! Gaps in the metal exterior duct that leads from the HVAC to the home lets heat escape and lets water in. It can also contaminate the air supply with undesirable fungal growth (think mold). The metal box should be flush and sealed to the home to prevent these serious issues from occurring.

  1. I like your tip about making sure that there are no gaps. That makes sense considering you don’t want mold to grow. I’ll have to consider your tips so that I can get a nice AC unit.
