Fall Furnace Inspections

If you have had your furnace for at least ten to fifteen years, now is a good time to start looking for a new one. After it reaches a certain age, the chances of it breaking down will break down drastically. When we do routine maintenance, we can look for any potential problem areas of the system. Doing so will help the system to run smoothly for an extended time. When you keep the system maintained, you can also reduce the amount you spend on monthly energy bills. With a tune-up, you will notice the furnace working more efficiently. It can also help reduce the times it will have to work harder to produce the desired results.

Having a warranty on your HVAC system means that you should follow routine maintenance as well. If you do so, then you help to keep the warranty valid. We can also help to advise you on the recommendations for when maintenance and a tune-up will be needed. Having regular maintenance done will also help improve the indoor air quality for your home. The filter can be replaced as well. Removing the harmful debris and contaminates from the air is what the job of the filter is. It will then help make sure that fresh clean air is circulated back into your home again.

This allows it to capture any dirt and contaminants that might be in the air of the home. Without a filter, these dirt particles can get into the HVAC system. They will then be moved to the ductwork in the home. After the ductwork, they have the possibility of being released through the vents, back into the home’s air again. These are the particles that may result in sneezing or any asthma or allergy issues. Make sure that there is always a filter in the system so that the dust does not get into the gears and parts.

If you are not sure when the filter should be changed, make sure to contact us. Depending on your home, lifestyle, and pets, the filter may need to be changed on a more frequent basis.

History of the Air Conditioning System

The history of the air conditioner for your home goes back to 1902. This was when the first air conditioner was invented by Willis Carrier. Being a skilled engineer, Carrier began experimenting with the laws of humidity control to solve an application problem. With his system, air was sent through the coils filled with cold water. This allowed the air to cool while also removing moisture from it to control humidity. A belt driven condensing unit was then condenser unit was then developed. This was the model that became the most common one for air conditioners in your home.

History of the System

Today’s air conditioners are able to operate based on the same fundamentals as Carrier’s back in 1933. They incorporate advancements in vapor compression, diagnostics, controls, electronic sensors, and even efficiency. Newer air conditioners have advanced components to them as well. This includes a two stage scroll compressor which allows for it to be quieter and more efficient as well. In the last five years, minimum efficiency standards have increased. This has allowed the systems to help reduce the energy consumption.

Thanks to the invention of the home air conditioner, more than 80% of households have air conditioners. While most of these are central air conditioners, there are also window or portable ones as well. Having an air conditioner has certainly gone from a luxury to being a necessity. It will also help to improve your quality of life, and has several health benefits. If you notice that your monthly energy bills are increasing, make sure to contact us.
