Inspecting the Filter in the Fall

With fall here, now is the time to inspect the HVAC unit before colder temperatures arrive. Make sure to contact us and schedule a time so we can inspect the furnace, thermostat, ductwork, filter, and other parts for you.

One of the most important parts to inspect is the filter. This is because when the unit runs, the air will need to go through the filter and into the HVAC system. Without a filter, the dirt, dust, and other air pollutants can go into your system and cause damage. This mostly will cause damage to the moving parts, because the dust and dirt can clog them. If you are not sure what type of filter to use in your system, make sure to contact us. We can advise you on the options and recommend which one is best for your home.

Also take time to inspect the thermostat. This is easily forgotten about until an issue occurs. If you notice that the thermostat is set at a certain temperature, but the actual temperature is different, it could indicate an issue. There could be a short in the thermostat or wire connection along the path. It may also mean that the ductwork has damage or cracks to it. This will allow the air that is produced, to be leaked from the system. Over time, this can result in a higher monthly energy bill.

Also remember to check the ductwork for any build up of clogs, dirt, or debris. By having the ductwork cleaned, the air produced can travel easier through the filter and the ductwork of the system. If you notice issues from the system or an increase in your bill, make sure to contact us. We can inspect the system and have it repaired. This can help your home to be warm and comfortable this winter.
