Filter Maintenance for your HVAC System

Keeping your home warm and comfortable is important all winter long. You will want to make sure that HVAC system is properly maintained and inspected. We all have a source of heat for our homes, and they all require some form of yearly maintenance to make sure it will be a reliable and safe heat source for the winter.

All furnaces require us to replace the air filter. But we need to know what kind of filter is needed and how many times per year it should be changed. Using the wrong type of air filter will allow too much dust to enter the equipment, or it will not allow enough air to travel because it is too restrictive.

Air filters that are too restrictive will do more damage to the furnace than a cheap pleated filter will. Air filters have Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) ratings. The higher the number the more efficient they are. If you are not sure what type of filter to get, make sure to contact us. We can recommend one for proper airflow and filtration.

Preventative maintenance can be performed well before winter takes hold and everyone is busy with emergency repairs. Put it on your calendar now and call to schedule an appointment. This will help your home to be warm through the winter months.
