Spring is a strange time of year for your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. One minute you are turning on the heat to warm your family during a spring snowstorm and the next you are turning on the air conditioner to combat sudden 80 degree days. In between, you might even have the windows open to allow the perfect spring air inside along with all of its accompanying pollen and pollutants. So, what can you do to have amazing heating and air this spring?
1. Replace Your Air Filters
After a long winter with your windows closed and air circulating, you might be surprised to see what is in your air filters. In fact, if you have not replaced your HVAC air filters since the temperature dropped, now is the perfect time to do it. Depending on the type of filter, it is recommended that you change a basic air filter every 30 to 90 days. Not only do these filters minimize the dust and allergens flying around your home, but they also help improve the efficiency of your entire HVAC system, even on days when you seem to turn the air conditioner on in the afternoon and the heater on in the evening.
2. Have Your HVAC System Serviced
You wouldn’t dream of driving your car 100,000 miles without changing the oil, why expect your HVAC system to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer without regular maintenance? Fortunately, your certified HVAC technicians at Farnen & Dermer can keep your entire system running smoothly with just a little regular maintenance.
From cleaning the heating and cooling elements to examining the system for leaks and problems, our maintenance services keep your HVAC system running efficiently giving you awesome heating and air all year long. Regular maintenance can also extend the life of your home heating and cooling system, saving you money in the long run.
3. Install a Whole House Air Purifier
While servicing your existing system will keep you comfortable, the only way to have truly amazing heating and air inside of your home is to install a whole-house air purifier. These systems work in conjunction with your HVAC system to not only reduce allergens and pollutants in your air; they actively scrub your air from the microscopic particles that would irritate your family’s asthma and allergies.
Whole-house air purifiers can also keep your family healthier by using the same technology used in hospitals to reduce airborne germs that settle on hard and soft surfaces throughout your home. Curious how a whole-house air purifier can give you healthier, amazing heating and air? Contact Farnen & Dermer for a free estimate on what it would take to install a system in your home.
While springtime usually means allergies and temperature extremes, it doesn’t mean you have to suffer from the sub-par air inside of your home. A few simple tasks and a phone call to Farnen & Dermer and you can experience your best spring yet.
