2015 New Year - HVAC Home Maintenance Tips

2015 New Year - HVAC Home Maintenance Tips

With the start of a new year, it's always a good idea to assess your home and its needs. Taking stock of appliances, home systems, and other items that make a house a home will help guide you to home improvements needed, appliances that may be near the end of their lives, and any other updates that can help to boost your home's worth.

In the winter and summer months a home's HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) systems are put to good use.

January is the perfect month to replace disposable filters or wash permanent ones in your home's HVAC or humidifier systems. Filters should be regularly replaced or washed when use is high or during peak seasons.

The start of a new year is an excellent time to vacuum all heat vents, especially those that are located on the floor.

The vents are overly susceptible to dust, dirt, pet hairs, and other particles that float through the air.

Vacuuming heat ducts helps clean your home's HVAC system and can help with any problems brought on by indoor pollutants, mold, pollen or anything else that finds its way into an air duct.
 
January is also a good time to check for any leaks in your home's forced air heat ducts.
