Keeping Your HVAC System Free and Clear

After our heater stopped working altogether last winter, we realized that it might be time to consult with a professional. We called a family friend who is also an HVAC contractor and he came out right away to see what he could do. After taking a look at things, he told us that our vents were almost completely blocked with dust and dirt. He recommended a vent cleaning company to come out and help, and they removed loads of debris the next day with specialized suction tools. After that, our HVAC system ran almost perfectly. This blog is all about the importance of keeping your HVAC system free, clear, and functional.

4 Tips For Great AC And Heating Service And Better Breathing Air

Your home is an ecosystem. Any good ecosystem needs some maintenance if it is to survive. Because your home needs comfortable temperatures and breathable air, a lot of this care happens when you get service on your AC and heater. There are four steps you should take when you want good AC service, functional heat, and the best breathing air possible.

1. Get a new air conditioner

You could spend loads and loads of money fixing your AC, or you could just get a new one. If you aren't sure which decision is best, there are some questions you can ask yourself. First, have you had your air conditioner for more than 10 years? If you have, this is the first sign that you might need an AC replacement. While many AC units last way longer, this is more or less the lifespan of the average air conditioner.

Second, are the repairs becoming more and more expensive? If so, it might be best to bite the bullet and get a new one anyway. Reach out to an AC replacement service for more information.

2. Replace your heater before winter

Getting AC services will help you during the summer, like buying a new heater can help you during the winter. You will find that a lot of professionals do both services, so keep their number in your phone whenever you need help. Just like replacing your air conditioner, you should know the lifespan of your heater. You have to change these a little less frequently, usually every 18 to 20 years.

3. Install an air purifier

With all of these changes, don't forget about how important good breathing air is. An air purifier can give you great breathing air so that you aren't sneezing and coughing and so that you can get through allergy season. The air in your home is constantly getting circulated and recirculated, which only makes problems even worse if the air is contaminated.

Buying a purifier can help you alleviate problems with your allergies or with generally unpleasant breathing air.

4. Crack a window to let in some nice, cool air

Natural air is also great for your home. When it's springtime particularly, it's not too hot and not too cold to just open the window and let in a breeze. You won't have to run your bills up, and getting this crisp air into your home costs you nothing.

More than anything, make sure to call up an AC professional.
