SPRING CLEANING!

SPRING CLEANING!

It’s finally spring!  Although in the Bay Area that does not necessarily mean it is time to switch from heating to cooling. However, we are seeing warmer days and nights that aren’t quite as cold, and we’ll soon be thinking more about how to stay cool than trying to get warm. Now is the time to think about what kind of maintenance your furnace will need as it goes into hibernation for the winter, as you do not want any unexpected repairs next fall when we have a sudden cold snap. Also, regular maintenance is the key to keeping your heating and air conditioning service healthy and ensuring it lasts for many years.

Some basic maintenance projects for the end of winter include cleaning the burner, replacing worn motors or bearings and cleaning the ducting. Keeping the burner clean on a gas furnace is an essential part of heating and air conditioning maintenance. If the burner on your furnace is clogged the gas will not be able to get sufficient oxygen in order to light, which can reduce the heating power or cause the burner to not come on at all. Replacing worn motors or bearings is essential in any piece of valuable equipment, just as you maintain the engine in your car by getting the oil changed. After the hard work of operating all winter, the motor that operates the blower and fans can wear down and lose lubrication, dust or moisture can make this problem even worse. If your heater is making noise, you should definitely call professional technicians at Moore Heating and Air Conditioning to inspect your system. Cleaning your ducting is an important annual maintenance that ensures the air quality of your home and the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning unit. Over the course of a year dust, dander and micro-bacteria can accumulate on the walls of your ducting, these can cause your ducts to block some of the conditioned air and reduce efficiency.  Also as the particles come lose they can be circulated into your living space, regular cleaning can remove these particles from the ducts and maintain the quality of air in your home.
