Preparing for Fall-HVAC Tips

It’s hard to believe that Summer is already ending. Now that it’s September, Fall is just around the corner, and Winter isn’t far behind, we can only hope they’ll fly by as fast as Summer did! It’s time to start packing up the sandals, and tank tops, and get ready for football and hot cocoa. Sandals and tank tops aren’t the only things that won’t be needed for the chilly months ahead. Your Summer HVAC system won’t be needed either. While you’re getting ready for football and hot cocoa, your furnace needs to get ready for its job ahead. Here are some things you should do this September to finish the Summer off and prepare for Fall and Winter.

1.Change the Air Filter

The chilly days haven’t come just yet, so you are probably still running your A/C, but changing your air filter will help give your furnace a fresh start for when it has to start doing work. It is recommended you change your air filter every 90 days. This will also help with the air quality in your home.

2.End of Season A/C Tune-Up

A professional end of season A/C tune-up will ensure that your system is still working efficiently, it doesn’t need any repairs, and everything is ready for the next summer. This is especially important if you didn’t have a tune-up done before summer started. These tune-ups help catch any small problems before they become big ones.

3.Get A Professional Furnace Evaluation

If your system is older, you have remodeled, or you just recently bought a new home, have a professional HVAC tech come to evaluate your furnace to make sure you don’t need to update your system. Having the right system will ensure your home is heated properly, and it helps save you money in the long run, as you will save a lot of money on utility costs.

4.Schedule a Fall Furnace Tune-Up

Make sure your furnace is running properly and safely and is ready for the long winter ahead. A professional tune-up will make sure your unit is clean and running efficiently. A technician will calibrate the thermostat, inspect the system and clean it, test the airflow, measure the motor voltages and tighten any electrical connections. Another good reason for a tune-up is if you have a warranty for your system. A yearly tune-up will keep your warranty valid.

Make sure your system is ready for Fall. Have a professional HVAC tech do an end of season A/C tune-up and make sure your furnace is in top shape!

 

 

Don’t Duck Out of Clean Air Ducts – HVAC System Cleaning

Air ducts are often out of sight, out of mind for a lot of homeowners, however, your body could be suffering from the side effects of dirty air ducts. Ducking out of HVAC Maintenance and Cleaning could be a hazard to your health and here’s why.

According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), the rule of thumb for homeowners are “if your air ducts look dirty, they probably are”. Hiring a trusted, certified HVAC professional to inspect your HVAC system is important. The need for performing HVAC system cleaning on your home and office is not just because dust and dirt regularly accumulates in your air ducts, but because of all the other factors that also accumulate inside as well:

  • Cigarette and Cigar Smoke
  • Pets in the house
  • Occupants with Allergies or Asthma
  • Mold
  • Home Renovation or Remodeling Projects
  • Water Contamination or Damage to the Home or HVAC System
Before and After Duct Cleaning

 

A good HVAC System Cleaning to clean out your residential or commercial air ducts will help address that poor indoor air quality that could be a hazard to occupants who are more sensitive to these contaminants such as those who suffer with allergies and asthma, young children and the elderly.

Indoor Air Quality is important for many homeowners and business owners. Your heating and cooling system are the lungs of your home as the system takes air in and breathes air out. Contaminants such as dander, dust, and chemicals are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulate an average of 5 to 7 times per day. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of these contaminants in the duct work.

While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home or business, they may be part of larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.

Good health is not the only thing at risk if you are avoiding giving your HVAC System and Air Ducts a professional cleaning. Your hard earned money is also at risk. Cleaning the HVAC unit and ductwork allows your HVAC System to run efficiently. There is evidence that dirty heating and cooling coils, motors, and air handling units can make your HVAC unit less efficient.
