Most people firmly believe that the air in their home is generally healthy. unfortunately, this is not always the case, research shows that indoor air quality is a very common problem. one of the main causes of poor indoor air quality is lack of maintenance involving your HVAC system.
Your furnace system is probably the most important appliances you have in your home, it conditions your air including Heating and Cooling as well as humidifies and cleans the air if set up properly. Furnace Cleaning should be performed every year, the Furnace Cleaning process is when the blower, condensing coil, burner assembly, air conditioning coil if you have air conditioning and the furnace cabinet itself are cleaned. This is not to be confused with duct cleaning, duct cleaning is when you clean all Heating and Cooling registers as well as all the main trunk line ductwork in the home that is attached to the furnace. This service should be performed every 3 years.
How does Furnace Cleaning improve my indoor air quality?
Furnace Cleaning is just one portion of improving your indoor air quality, replacing your filters every two months, making sure that there is not too much moisture building up on either your condensing coil or your air conditioning coil is very important and keeping it clean allows the furnace system to work at Peak efficiency so it does not build up with dust debris or mold. Your furnace filter is a very important part of the operation of your HVAC system not to mention the most important part of your indoor air quality. Many people forget to change the air filter on a regular basis, this will lead to premature breakdowns and lifespan of your furnace system. filters have a wide range of effectiveness, the cheap $5 filters that you pick up at a local hardware store are very inefficient, they are designed to only stop large particles from entering your furnace fan and that"s it. You want to make sure that your furnace filter has a Merv 8 rating or better. Merv stands for minimum efficiency rating value and every furnace filter has one.
