How Do I Maintain My Furnace Myself?/h2>
The air filter is one of the most essential components of your furnace and acts like a giant sponge. Ambient air is pulled into your HVAC unit, where tiny particles of dust, dander, and other debris are picked up and sucked into your HVAC system along with the air. Your filter is designed to protect your heater; if the filter becomes clogged and dirty, it will not allow the air to be pulled through and heated. Your heating system will have to work much harder to do its job, resulting in expensive energy bills and early replacement of your furnace. Changing your filter each month and replacing your filter before you shut down your furnace for the summer will prevent extra wear and tear on your furnace.
Professional Furnace Inspection
If the weather is warming up and your furnace is turned off, you should always be conscious of any potential safety issues that can affect your property, some of which can have deadly consequences. For example, natural gas heating systems produce a chemical called carbon monoxide, a byproduct of the heating process. Your boiler is designed to vent carbon monoxide into the air outside your home through a vent system. Carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas that can easily seep into your home through a damaged heat exchanger. If you don’t already have them, install carbon monoxide detectors throughout your entire home, especially near bedrooms. Scheduling an inspection with your Absolute P&M Services expert to ensure that your heating unit is safe so you can rest easy at night.
