Keeping your heating and cooling systems in good working order means your utility bills will be lower, your home will be more comfortable, and you'll need to call for repairs less often.
Schedule a maintenance service call at the change of seasons. If there are any problems with your system, it's better to find out before it's freezing or sweltering outside! Our maintenance customers always receive priority service during peak heating and cooling seasons.
Replace your heating and cooling air filters every month that they're in use. Old, dirty filters make your system have to work harder which wastes energy and can even damage your system. While you're at it, check and clean the filters in your home's air cleaners and humidifiers too.
If you have a forced air heating system, check your furnace's blower compartment and blower coils. Keep them clean by vacuuming if you see dirt and dust. It’s important to check the fan belt tension and lubricate the fan and motor bearings.
- Keep your furnace area clutter free as it can create a fire hazard and keep your system from operating efficiently.
- To get the most out of your heating system, keep the heating registers and vents throughout the house free of dust, dirt, and pet hair by vacuuming them at least once a year.
- If you hear odd sounds when the heating or cooling system starts, call our service department to stop problems before they become serious.
- In winter months, set your ceiling fan at its slowest speed and reverse it in order to gently push warm air down from the ceiling without generating a breeze.
