Air filters have a reputation for being a part that is easily replaced in your forced air heating system. When you maintain the HVAC system you can help save time, money, and stress in the long run. If you notice an issue between inspections, make sure to contact us. This can also help to decrease the chance of further issues from forming.
The kind of air filter that is included in most every modern forced air system serves two purposes. The first is to protect the system from particulates like dust. The second is to regulate the flow of air through the system to prevent it from overheating. An air filtration system, on the other hand, is entirely designed around improving indoor air quality for those who live in the home. It filters the air being circulated to ensure that as few contaminants make it into the home as possible. By inspecting the filter on a regular basis and changing it when needed, you can help extend the life of the heating system, as well as providing good quality air for your home.
There are a couple of reasons you will want a professional to install your air filtration system. The first is the installation itself. Most forced air systems, however, are going to need to be altered to work with air filtration. The second reason is the type of air filtration system you have installed. There are various kinds, each rated for a different level of contaminant load and air flow. If your system is not designed to accommodate a particularly strong system, like a HEPA filter, it can actually result in damage to your system from increased pressure and heat becoming trapped in the unit.
By having regular maintenance done for the HVAC system and unit, you can help prevent an unexpected issue from forming. Proper inspections will include looking at the parts and components. If a part has worn and needs to be replaced, this can be done so the heating system is working efficiently. If you notice anything out of the norm between visits, make sure to contact us. It is always recommended to have the problem looked at before it turns into a larger issue. Regular maintenance is important to keep the warmth and comfort of your home for your family.
