In the winter, you will want your home to be as warm and comfortable as it can be. This should include having regular maintenance inspections done for it. You will want to have all the parts properly inspected to help ensure that everything is working correctly. The ductwork, thermostat, furnace, and all parts should be looked at. If you are not sure how often this should be, you can contact us. We will advise you when the inspections should take place. This will help ensure everything is working at top performance levels for the furnace.
The filter will also need to be inspected for your home. It should be checked often. Also remember to have it replaced when it is recommended. This is important because the filter collects dust, dirt, and any other pollutants that could be in the air of your home. When the filter is cleaned, it will help increase the efficiency of air flow through it. Otherwise, strain can be put on the furnace system. This can cause it to need to be replaced sooner than it otherwise should.
Notice unusual things
If you hear an odd noise, you will want to check the furnace. Sometimes if the filter is too clogged with dirt and dust, the parts will wear. This is caused by the system working harder because it takes extra stress to get air movement through. When it is recommended, you should replace the filter. It is a great idea to keep an extra one or two on hand, so you know you will always have one. Make sure that you get a filter that is the correct size and design for your system. Not all filters will fit all furnace and HVAC types. If you are not sure what one to get, contact us and we can advise you on the correct one.
