Home Filtration Systems

Keeping your home cool and comfortable is important. And one way to accomplish this is to have a whole home filtration system. When you have one, you can also help to recirculate that air that is in your home as well. If the air quality is poor, you may notice symptoms of allergies and asthma. Late summer and early fall is a common time for people to suffer from allergies. By having a whole home filtration system, we can help remove those triggers in your home. This will make breathing and living in your home easier.

Check the ductwork over

We can also check the ductwork in the home. If it has not been cleaned in several years, now is the perfect time to have it done. Over time the dust and dirt particles can build up in the ductwork. This will also result in the air conditioner or furnace having to work harder. The air will not be able to move efficiently through the ductwork, therefore making the system work harder. We can inspect and clean the ductwork for you. At the same time we can also inspect it for any signs of damage, cracks, or holes that it might have. If there is any damage to it, you will notice the air starting to leak out and resulting in a costly repair bill

 

If you ever notice an issue or problem, always make sure that you contact us. If there are loud noises or thuds in the ductwork as the HVAC system works, we can inspect it for you. We can also help to advise you on what type of air filtration system that you should have for your home. This can help make the home comfortable and more enjoyable to be in, no matter what season it is.

Knowing what Needs Inspecting for your HVAC System

Knowing what Needs Inspecting for your HVAC System


In the spring, make sure that you have the HVAC system properly inspected and maintained. Doing so will help to make sure that everything is working efficiently when you go make the switch from heat to cool. There are several parts that you will want to make sure are always in the best working condition. You can contact us so we can inspect them. Between visits you can also take a look at them incase there is a large issue. Never ignore an issue, because it can lead to further time, money, and stress in the long run.

The filter will have to be changed regularly. If you have pets or people in your home use tobacco products, you will want to change the filter every month. You can change the filter every three months if you do not have pets or use tobacco. Changing the filter will help to keep the air as clean as possible when you are in the home. Always make sure that you get a filter that is the correct size for your HVAC system. Doing so will help it to work effectively as possible. A filter that is too small or too large can cause issues in the long run.

Another important thing to check this spring is the thermostat. If you are looking to buy a new one, a programmable thermostat offers several benefits. You can set the temperature in your home to decrease and increase, based on your schedule. If you have the same hours at work, you can set the temperature so it is at the ideal degree when you arrive home from work. When you have a programmable thermostat, you can also help to reduce overall monthly energy costs for your system.

Thermostat Problems

If the set temperature is different than the actual temperature, then there can be an issue. Make sure to turn off the thermostat, and turn it back on. Also make sure it is on the correct settings. If there is still and issue, contact us. That way we can inspect the thermostat for you.
