With the cold coming, now’s the time to have your homes furnace or heating system cleaned, checked and tuned. Heating system can malfunction leaving you in the cold and in need of a heating repair company or even worse, kill. Yes a heating system can kill be burning down or by leaking carbon monoxide into the air stream. So keep an eye on these 3 things to make sure your home is safe and ready for winter.
- Replace your air filter; an air filter is cheap but much needed. If you don’t stop dirt at the filter, it will flow in and clog you condenser coil causing the airflow to be restricted. This restricted airflow will raise the temperature when the heat is on. High temperatures are not something you want in your attic so please replace your filter on a regular basis. I say every 1-3 months if after a month your filter is still clean then start giving it 2 but never go longer than 3 months.
- Pay attention to random or unexplained headaches, these could be caused by the furnace. Yes every time the furnace is heating the home it is generating carbon monoxide which is supposed to be sealed inside a metal heat exchanger and vented out the flue vent. But, heat exchangers crack and allow the carbon monoxide to flow into the air stream.
- Check your flue vent, be sure it’s clear and no birds have made their nests in it, or even died and clogged the vent. That happens more than you’d imagine and when the nest or bird clogs the vent the carbon n monoxide can’t escape so it flows into the air stream again.
