Why is HVAC Maintenance Important?

Monday, July 14, 2014 | Comments (0)

Think of your heating and cooling system like a car. A car needs continual maintenance to stay in tip top shape. Your care requires getting the oil changed, changing the window wipers, servicing the transmission and more. Due to the intake of outside air, the filtration systems, coils, and ducts themselves become dirty. Dirty or unmaintained heating and air conditioning systems need to work an average of 20% harder to give you the same air conditioning and heating results which, in turn, costs you additional money on your energy bill.

What are the benefits to regular maintenance?

Regular maintenance can save you money in a number of different ways. Regular maintenance will prevent repair costs and even complete unit replacement costs. With proper HVAC maintenance, a unit can last well over 10 years!

Not only will regular maintenance save you money, but it keeps your air clean and healthy! A dirty heating and air conditioning system means poor indoor air quality. Regular maintenance keeps the inner workings of the heating and air conditioning system clean. The Environmental Protection Agency lists Indoor Air Quality among the top 5 risks to human health. This is likely because indoor air can be 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. While homeowners can’t see the majority of indoor air contaminants, every cubic foot of air breathed carries a mixture of millions of microscopic particles such as pollen, mold spores and dust mite debris. Your air conditioning and heating system can make your home a dramatically healthier place for you and your family by filtering the air, controlling humidity, and cycling fresh outdoor air into the home.

Why You Should Call A HVAC Contractor For Furnace Repair?

Wednesday, July 09, 2014 | Comments (0)

Having your furnace quit on a cold winter day is no fun, and repairs can be expensive. Generally speaking, most of them will perform well for many years, but breakdowns can occur. How do you decide between replacement or repair?

HVAC contractor can help you with this difficult decision. Many furnace malfunctions are due to nothing more than poor maintenance, and if this is the case, it may be that your furnace just needs a good cleaning, which will be fairly inexpensive. Dirt is a major cause of problems and inefficiency – it affects all of their components, so if you’re not in the habit of having your furnace cleaned regularly, you should start. Your HVAC contractor can clean the motor, the blower and the filter system for you, and then schedule regular maintenance calls so that you can avoid future furnace repairs.

Before you call your HVAC contractor, make sure to check your circuit breakers – there could be a problem with your electrical system. Electrical problems can also be inexpensive.

More complex (and therefore more expensive) problems include blown motors and bent fan blades. If this is the case, depending on the age of the furnace, you may want to consider replacing it instead of repairing. As a general rule of thumb, a furnace usually lasts between 10 and 15 years. Again, your HVAC contractor can advise you on the merits of repairing or replacing, and can recommend the best system for your home if you decide to replace. Alternatively, we offer repair services in Petaluma and nearby areas.
