In order to have the furnace and HVAC system working as efficiently as possible, you will want to make sure it is inspected regularly. If you are not sure how often that the furnace and system should be inspected, make sure to contact us and we can advise you on a schedule.
The first thing to remember is to inspect the filter on a regular basis. The filter is designed to capture dust and dirt particles that are in the air of your home. Also remember to never operate the furnace without a filter. This is because the dirt can get into the parts and components and cause further wear and tear to the system. The filter will also illuminate those particles from going to the air and lowering the air quality in your home. If you have pets, someone who smokes, or a family member with asthma or allergies, changing the filter more regularly is recommended.
Having the furnace inspected also means checking the ductwork for any leaks or cracks. If this happens, heat that is produced will escape from the ductwork, causing the heater to work harder, and waste more money in the long run. By having the ductwork inspected and cleaned, you can help prevent an issue with the system.
We can also check the thermostat in your home. If the actual temperature is different than the set temperature, then the thermostat may have an issue. A programmable thermostat is recommended because you can set the temperature based on your lifestyle of you and your family. There are several different types of thermostats to choose from, so we can help recommend one based on your home and family. The thermostat allows you to lower the temperature when you are away, and then increase it before you get home. This allows the home to be warm and comfortable, without wasting heat through the day. Anytime you notice an issue with the furnace system, make sure to contact us so we can inspect it as soon as possible.
