The heating and cooling system is the heart of a home. A well maintained system is the difference between a comfortable home and one that is stuffy, oppressive and otherwise uncomfortable. Not only that, but a poorly maintained system can lead to allergy flare ups, sinus infections and other breathing issues. If you haven't changed your furnace filter in the last 3 months, there is a good chance that there are excess airborne particles being circulated around your home.
Our techs do plenty of air filter changes as part of our routine maintenance plan. Simply changing the filter will make the air quality better, but it will also prevent dust build up on the furnace blower motor. Dirty blower motors can overheat and burn out and even catch fire outside of the burn chamber. When we change the air filter, we also clean the interior of the burn chamber including the blower motor. We also check the plenum and heat exchanger to make sure there is no cracking that could allow deadly carbon monoxide to enter your home.
Indoor air quality isn't just a problem during the winter. Since the air conditioning and heating systems both use the same ventilation ducts, forced air passes through the furnace filter all 12 months of the year. So, when we do air conditioner maintenance we check the filter then too. As part of our standard maintenance plan, we check and clean the evaporator and condenser coils, measure and top off the refrigerant level, clear out any debris around the exterior casing of the unit and check the entire ventilation system for blockages. We can also do duct leak detection and sealing to make sure that forced air isn't leaking out before it gets to the living areas.
