The weather is already beginning to get crisp and cool, and the leaves are beginning to change various colors, which means it is time to go back to school. These aren’t the only changes that take place this time of year. In response to the upcoming cool temperatures, your HVAC system will require adjusting to keep your family cozy and comfortable. So, let’s get to the point and talk about the measures Washington Court House Heating & Cooling wants you to take to ensure you get the most out of your system so you can focus on the hustle and bustle of school commencing.  

Why Is Examination Of My Furnace Blower Important? 

The blower does what it sounds like; its only job is to blow hot air into your home through your ductwork. While the blower is composed of a blower motor and fan, the motor is where we typically see problems. It is essential to contact Washington Court House Heating & Cooling if your blower stops working because, without this component, your house won’t get warm, and you risk your system overheating. Both of these will cause you unneeded frustration and discomfort for you during the chilly seasons. While problems with your furnace blower may be straightforward, there is a chance something more complex is going on. Keep in mind that complex concerns with your blower motor need to be addressed by an HVAC professional directly.  

What Is So Bad About Dirty Ductwork? 

Over time, your air ducts can become overcome with dirt, dust, and other debris if not adequately maintained. Built-up dirt and debris in your ductwork can taint your home’s indoor air quality and disrupt your comfort level. While air filters are meant to keep particles out of your ductwork, they aren’t 100% effective. And, that debris sneaking through ends up setting up camp within your ducts with no regard to you. Since the build-up isn’t immediate, it is pretty standard to have your ductwork cleaned every 3 to 5 years. Neglecting to eradicate this dust and debris in a reasonable time frame can result in improper airflow and allergy-related health problems such as skin irritations and respiratory problems.  

When Should I Upgrade My System? 

Fall is the best time to purchase a new system because our installation technicians have a less jam-packed schedule than what is typical for summer. Now, if you are unsure if it is more profitable to repair your current system or replace it with a brand-spanking new one, we have what we like to call the “$5,000 Rule”. Take the age of your current HVAC equipment and multiply it by the estimated repair expenditures. If this fun little math problem surpasses $5,000, then it is in your best interest to go ahead and completely replace your new one. Furthermore, we recommend upgrading your system every ten years for optimized efficiency.
