In a year’s time, your heating and air conditioning system can run for over 2,000 hours. If your car ran for that long at 45 miles per hour, you would have driven 90,000 miles. Would you drive that many miles without an oil change, a flat tire or an empty radiator? This is exactly what your heating and air conditioning equipment is doing without its annual tune up and cleaning. It is dirty and running very inefficiently.
Why should I perform preventive maintenance?
Heating and cooling systems work incredibly hard to perform their functions for your household. The constant stopping, starting and continual operation can wear down a machine quickly and unexpectedly if the proper care and maintenance is delayed. However, by performing preventive maintenance, or servicing your system regularly, you can maximize the life cycle of your heating or cooling unit and guard against many unexpected failures .Preventive maintenance inspections performed on a regular basis can uncover leaks, rust, rot, soot, frayed wires and corroded electrical contacts.
What equipment requires preventive maintenance?
At least once a year, Furnace and air conditioner require a professional tune-up. Because gas-fired equipment functionswith greater efficiency, it needs to be serviced every year. Inspections on furnace systems should include ductwork,dampers the chimney, registers, blowers, the gas meter and every part of the actual furnace.Meanwhile,airconditioning unit inspections should also include inspections of the fan, compressor,indoor coils, outdoor coils and refrigerant lines.
What type of filter should I use?
Standard furnace filters work well to keep your system and its ductwork clean, but they don’t really improve indoor air quality. To do that you need a media filter.The media filter rests between the main return duct and the blower cabinet and will improve dust and particle removal by seven times that of a standard furnace filter. However, upgrading to a pleated media filter will remove everything from insecticide dust to airborne viruses from the filtered air. A media filter can have a life exceeding up to two years, and its only drawback is that its tight fiber weave can cause your furnace to have to work harder to blow air through the house. Always choose a filter that matches your blower’s capacity.
What are the preventive maintenance measures for my ducts?
Although modern technology has made significant advances in air filters over the past decade, a fractional amount of dust still finds its way past heating and cooling filters and into your home’s ducts.As this dust accumulates throughout your home, it creates the perfect environment for the growth of mold, mites and harmful bacteria. To check your ducts for dust buildup, pull off several supply and return registers and see how much dust has accumulated in the system.If you choose to clean your system, your best option is to contact a professional duct cleaner. Although duct cleaning has little effect on the actual air quality,it will eliminate a house-wide breeding ground for harmful bacteria and mold in addition to helping your heating and cooling system operate more efficiently.If you are installing a new system, you should consider cleaning the ducts at the same time. New systems are often more powerful than old systems and can stir up dust that is sitting in the existing ductwork.
